Don’t take our word for it…

Less that 24 hours to go with our Kickstarter campaign to put multi-modal transit routing back on the iPhone.

We're still need a few more people to put us over the finish line… But rather than telling you (again) about all the great reasons to support our campaign, we're going to give the last word to our friends and supporters. Here's a taster of the last couple of days of positive vibes for this project from Twitter, news and blogs.

Thanks everyone for all the support, especially all 756 of our amazing backers on Kickstarter. Now, fingers crossed for the final push…
