Apk file size: 783.0 KB

Unofficial Android client for the London Underground and DLR, Open Sourced under GPLv3.

Real-time Tube status and departures, quick access to station info from favourites and find stations by GPS.

Follow @tube_chaser on Twitter for latest updates.

PLEASE NOTE: Some stations are missing from the list, or no useful information is given. This is ALWAYS due to TfL's poor data, not Tube Chaser.

This mostly affects Hammersmith & City/Circle Line in West London, District line at Paddington, and some Metropolitan Line stations.

Tube map and London Overground support can't be included at this stage, due to ridiculous licensing costs from both TfL and National Rail Enquiries.

Enable Send usage stats to help improve Tube Chaser. See website for more info.

Whats new

    - Add stations for DLR Stratford Intl line extension
    - GoogleTV support

Awesome Shame TfL doesn't provide Overground info, otherwise this app can only be described as plain awesome. Does what it says, easy to use interface. Simply a must have if you are travelling London by tube.

A Google User

Nice interface However data are not accurate add per other free app. Also three user journey to reach the useful live departure is too long. No immediate sense of the tube status on the selected station screen.

A Google User

Galaxy SII I am unable to receive any departure information,love the interface and its simple use but for the feature I most need it for it doesn't seem to work.

A Google User

Best tube app out there, clear and easy to use. Very quick to refresh tube status. Well done developer +++++ maybe a quit button in a future release

A Google User

Please sir, can we have more? Love the current features, but would be useful to combine Favourite stations with Tube Status - see all at one glance. Also having used Tube Buddy on Blackberry, have got used to seeing live departure info in less clicks. So far, so good but please could we have more? Thanks

A Google User

Excellent.... Works like a super computer... And it's free..... Thanks alot

A Google User

Really good Simple to use and very effective. All it needs to make it the perfect tube app is a tube map - you'll get the 5th star back when you add that!

A Google User

Best app I've ever downloaded. Would be great if it had the west side for Hammersmith line and overground but still great anyway. Very reliable.

Sam Kent

Fantastic Can only be summed up as fantastic, all the information you need and nothing more, and no ads!! Amazing

A Google User

Not 5* yet Great app! Shame there is no info for all stations! When u include all u get the 5th star from me ;)

A Google User

worked for a good few months now force closes whenever i try and use it, really annoying

Akashdeep Arora

Grt app Works most of the time .for some reason becontree tube station information is not available which has really surprised me.

A Google User

Misses trains on Met Used to be favourite, but other apps show departure board more accurately. Strange since it should all come from tfl API

Joshua Parkinson

Essential App For Londoners This is deffo the best tube app by far and an app that every Londoner should have. Bang On!

Alpha Redd

Works well! Very reliable. Been using this for 3/4 of a year now. Still needs Overground departure information though.

A Google User

Really great app This app is great, very smooth, easy to navigate and accurate. Definitely needs London Overground services though!

yasir alwahab

Not always reliable There is a difference of 1-2 minutes with the actual tube arrival time. Sometimes it says 4min and suddenly changes to arriving now!!!

Kabir Ahmad

Very good Isn't there a way of adding London overground stations?

A Google User

Minus one star for the missing tube map I can only recomend however I am somewhat missing a tube map (including DLR, over ground, etc.). I know these maps are all over the place but sometimes it could be handy. Anyways, thanks for this app.

mark hampshire

It is a useful guide to find out more information on the tube and the DLR

Fasal Zainuddeen

Best app but not full This app is really awesome but please incorporate a tube map into the app, as that would make it a complete and 5 star app.

Anoni Mouse

Simple. Works. Brilliant! This does exactly what it says it should. Perfect for regular tube commuters... The addition of an offline map of the system would make it complete (even if only an image). Can't wait for the "pending" features!

A Google User

Excellent app Waiting for the Overground Departure info for the 5th star...other than that it's worth a look...

A Google User

Great app! If it had a weekend closures page it would be perfect but still is worth downloading

William Blunn

Useless Paddington only shows Bakerloo line. Hello? Circle? District? Hammersmith & City? This app is a steaming pile of dog doo...

A Google User

Good n bad Nice app. Downside that there is no actual tube map.

A Google User

. Could do with a tube map but otherwise simple, fast and accurate - a great example of what a phone app should be.

A Google User

Use this five days a week Excellent app. Switched from competing products. Quick response. Does the job on tube status and departures. Hopefully get overground departures soon!

A Google User

Excellent I work for TfL and this App proves to be very helpful to myself and a number of my colleagues during our working day.

David Ammar

Brilliant! So useful. So quick and clear.

Angelo Marletta

Excellent but It lacks the Overground! When it does it will deserve 5 stars

A Google User

Best app of this type I've found With the addition of a map and a "Weekend Closures" page it would just about be perfect and get the extra star.

A Google User

Map Needs a map and departure times for all stations

A Google User

Sir pls upload youtube downloader All os provide this app but androyed not provide

A Google User

Good Needs all lines and stations for 5

Edoardo Zollo

Used to be quite good but Isn't accurate anymore. I'm sitting at the tube st, my next tube is due in 3 minutes and the app shows now. I'm sorry but this is London and time accuracy is everything. Goodbye

A Google User

No Updates The DLR times do not seem to update at all. Pls fix it.

A Google User

Somewhat reliable... But abbey rd on the dlr line??

peter roots

Missing stations If Chesham showed live updates this would be really useful. Otherwise a good app

A Google User

Nice app Great looking app only fault I can find is it does not have a 45 second auto refresh.

Philip Bulley

Needs a widget, otherwise great Simple, no fuss app. Very useful! A widget like the one in "London Bus Checker" would be a great addition. Also in departure board, tapping an individual train entry should then display all metadata for that train. Just suggestions, thanks!


Shows the wrong times, made me go to wrong platforms and miss trains numerous times. Although it has a nice interface and easy to use but useless...

Andy Yallop

Not accurate Installed whilst waiting for my tube service and when checking on the app to compare what was displaying on the dot matrix it couldnt have been more wrong. I had a Train due in 2 mins on the dot matrix but the app said 29 mins, laughable really so deleted to continue my search of a more accurate tube tracker app

Viktor Németh

I think the dev may need to switch feeds - the one the app is using at the moment seems to be out of sync w reality...

A Google User

Brilliant app. Please add train numbers!!

fash Jackson

Just what the commuter ordered Well done for the simplest of solutions to an annoying fact of life. Only improvement I could think of is adding in where on the train you should be to line up with the train platform exits!

Ben Hall

It used to be excellent For years this has worked well, getting me to platforms just as my train arrives. For 2 weeks now the information has been meaningless. All tube lines are apparently still closed for the night at 7:20 am, my train is 6 minutes away apparently as I watch it pull away from my platform just as I arrive. Annoying, it was good.

Fatima Patel

Recently lagging Ive been using this app for years, amazingly accurate until recent months whereby it doesnt state the tube arrival times anymore.. bug or?

Zahra O

Unreliable Wrong timetable, deleted the app

A Google User

Average Not fully accurate about closures

A Google User

Good, but... Would be more useful if there was a way to show weekend engineering works in advance.

Just Lewey

What happened? This app used to be accurate but now it's always wrong. What happened?
