    "This app for the Museum of Modern Art in New York City is pretty good. You can check and see what activities are going on in the Museum and plan your trip. It doesn't give you other information about New York though so I would not call this the best NY app."

    This app will automatically tell you which corner of the New York streets is the best for catching a taxi. It will rate every corner with a score that will be go from one star, little taxi activity, to five start, which will mean that this corner is perfect for getting a cab.

    "Every New Yorker has apps that make their life in the big city easier to manage. The CabSense NYC app does a nice job of helping me to find cabs which can be a huge problem after work!"

    "Awesome in theory, not so great these days. It was perfect back when its "real-time" estimates actually reflected real time. Because even if you have a car in NYC, you're going to end up on the subway at some point, and it's complicated, and timing things is hard. But this particular app has gone downhill and isn't nearly as useful any more. The maps are still all there, but all the really cool features are inaccurate. I'll give it a middling score, in case the ever start getting it accurate again."

    "Commuting to work in NYC isn't always the most relaxing experience. Exit Strategy NYC Subway Map is really good for me as it details a full map of NYC. All the subway and bus stations are made available. All the locations are detailed and displayed. The timetables are very accurate so I know when the next subway train is arriving and leaving so that makes my trips around the city a lot easier and more convenient. I really love Exit Strategy NYC Map as this app I feel is essentially for all New Yorkers."
