A New App to Help Get Around Cities

An online Google Maps mashup app called Mapnificent uses a brilliant concept to let city dewelers understand how to get around with transit. The app shows you the area you can reach with public transport from any point in a given time. Say you enter your home address, it visualizes the areas you can reach from your house via transit in a time you specify, say 15 minutes. It is available for major cities in the US and world wide, and explained further in video below.  The app developer, Stefan Wehrmeyer, explained how it works it this post.
