Trainsity Rio de Janeiro Metro Android App

This is another Android App inspired by the on-going FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Using this, find the way around the city of Rio de Janeiro using the high resolution vector maps of the MetroRio's Orange Line 1Green Line 2 and the Subway Bus lines. The maps have small file sizes but high resolution which will not become "blocky" pixels when zoomed in. They can be viewed offline without an Internet connection. Users can tap the train station labels to open Google Maps or Street View, where they can use all the functions of the Google apps to visualize the surrounding area and/or perform routing for directions.

On a mobile handset, the app will display a list of train lines, which when tapped will open up a detail view of the metro transit map, as shown below. 
Tapping the station boxes will bring up an option menu where users can choose to display the station in Google Maps or Street View.
The app is also optimized for tablet devices. The layout on a table will display both the list and the vector map 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.
The app is available on the Google Play Store. Just click the button below.
Get it on Google Play
