TRIP PLANNER ON THE GO
The MTA’s route planner is now available on cell phone browsers, in beta mode. Enter your start and end points, and it calculates the fastest trip, taking service changes into account. The cooler-than-HopStop part: It coordinates with bus times, so you can transfer easily. (tripplanner.mta.info/mobile)

SUBWAY STATUS
This Facebook app features service advisories, but is more about socially de-awkwarding your ride. It’ll tell you which friends in your network ride your train (which makes avoiding them easier) and offers a focused arena for Missed Connections–like listings (“We made eye contact. You were wearing a reindeer sweater.…”). Also, there’s complaining. Lots of complaining. “Why the hell is it that they run 1 trains in pairs?” writes a rider. “If they are going to do that shit, they should just bring the 9 back.” (apps.facebook.com/subwaystatus/train.php)
