Next Metro displays live information from a few nearby London (UK) Underground stations based on your current location. It also provides the status of the whole metro network and directions to a nearby station of your choice. 

The app is simple, quick, requires minimal interaction, allows the font size to be changed on some of the screens, supports voice commands, and offers an optional voice-over.

Please note that while the app displays the status of the DLR and London Overground, it does not display departures for these two lines as TfL does not yet provide such data to third parties. 

What's new?
- Added an option to disable periodic tube status updates when the app is not running.
