    Just noticed an app called AllSubway show up (59p/99c). It has the official london tube map, as well as Paris, Barcelona, and 8 more. It has NYC but that doesn't look like the official map. I very much they've got the rights for these images so grab it while you can, particularly londoners. I'd bet my lunch it won't stay up. Very cheap too! The maps are in the app rather than fetched over the air. You pinch/slide to navigate.

    you could download "official" subway maps in .pdf and throw them on the iphone with "pinch and navigate". it doesn't seem like the app does anything above and beyond what i suggested above, and therefore is a waste of money. for any subway map to truly be useful on the iphone, it needs to inform of service disruptions, provide schedules, search & routing capabilities, etc. etc. which all of the other subway apps seem to do. anything less is a joke.
