Londoners who fancy recycling their old mobile in order to buy a smartphone may be interested to hear the London Tube app has now been updated.
In an article for Know Your Mobile Richard Goodwin said the app - which was created for the iPhone - has just been revised and now has information on the new Barclay's Cycle Hire scheme.
He noted those who download the revamped app will be able to use it to search for the nearest cycle hire points and docking stations with Live View.
"There's also been some augmented reality updates that allow users to view point of interests around them on Google Maps through a unique augmented reality view," he added.
Earlier this week, a new app was launched for health-conscious mobile users, which could persuade them to sell their old mobile to raise funds for an iPhone.
The Cook IT Allergy Free app was created by Kim Mae after her son and husband were diagnosed with coeliac disease and it features hundreds of recipes suitable for those following a gluten-free diet.
