Trainsity Brasilia Android App

This app was created just in time for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Use this to find your way around the city of Brasilia using the high resolution vector maps of the metro Green and Orange Lines. The vector maps have small file sizes and can be zoomed in many times without any appearance of pixels, unlike raster based maps. The maps can also be viewed offline without any Internet connection. The station labels on the maps can be tapped to open up either the Google Maps or Street View apps - in which users can further visualize the surrounding  area and perform direction queries.

On a mobile handset, users will initially see a list of train maps. When a line is tapped, the detail map view of the metro line will appear, as shown below.

Tapping the station labels/boxes will bring up an option menu where users can choose to display the station in Google Maps or Street View.

On a tablet device, both the list and the map are displayed at the same time, as shown below.

Users can toggle the map to full screen mode by tapping the action bar icon at the top right corner.

You can download this app from the Google Play Store by clicking the badge below.
