Summary
The NYC Bike Share program is taking off as we speak, and there's already an app for it too. To get to know the hundreds of locations of bike stations, mobile agency WebComrades made a free, simple and useful mobile application that shows the nearest free bike or bike slot to return your bike. It also shows the status of the station (free, empty, out of order) and gives you the opportunity to pin your favorite stations. The app is fast, simple and free for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
