DEAR MS. SMARTPHONE: IN YOUR OPINION, WHICH PHONES- APPLE OR ANDROID- ARE BETTER FOR USERS WHO WANT TO USE TRANSIT APPS? Nick, Omaha NE.
Dear Nick: It is the policy of Dear Ms. Smartphone to not endorse particular brands or recommend operating systems. Whichever phone you pick, the key is to become knowledgeable and informed with its many features. For transportation apps, make sure that you can access the phone’s built in compass. Download the maps you find easiest to navigate with. And, make sure, the phone has a security system you trust because in the near future, transit fares will be loaded directly on smartphones.
