Mapway relocates into Manchester city centre as it continues to grow app downloads to over 50 million. 

Yep, that’s right: we’ve reached 50 million lifetime downloads across our suite of transport apps!  Mapway first launched the London Tube Map app ten years ago and it has now become so popular that recent data from analyst AppAnnie shows that it is installed on more than 10% of iPhones in the UK.   In addition to the UKMapway provides information for 28 transit systems globally including New York Subway, Paris Metro, Berlin Subway and Tokyo Subway.  Our recently launched Interactive Mapping tools enable us to quickly add new cities on both iOS and Android, whilst the newly developed over the air update mechanism will ensure that users always have the most up to date information on their mobile device
Mapway founder, David James said today: “This really is an amazing achievement, thanks to our brilliant team who have worked incredibly hard to ensure that we continue to be the world’s number one in public transport apps. I’d also like to thank all of the commuters and travellers who use our apps on a daily basis, and who have helped us to reach this fantastic milestone.”  The future of the company looks bright as we look to add further innovative improvements to current and future apps that help people travel more easily.  COO, Dave Thomas commented “During 2019 we will have helped power more than 300 Million green journeys globally.  We have delivered significant revenue growth over the past few years and continue to invest this into improving our apps so that we continue to delight our loyal user base.  Our imminent move into Manchester city centre is an exciting development which we believe will help us retain our talented team and attract new talent.
