nfsLondonMetroMap3 review

FREE

Manufacturer: NewFreeScreensavers.com

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

nfsLondonMetroMap3 is a great screensaver that offers an up-to-date map of London's Tube network.

Mind the gap! The nfsLondonMetroMap3 screen saver puts the London Underground on your desktop. It's a great way to familiarize yourself with the Tube before traveling to London, or to reminisce after a trip to the city. The map includes information on station closures and other important details that are valid through 2011, including the London Overground 'line', which extends the tube network into regional overground rail services.

The nfsLondonMetroMap3 screen saver is a quick download and runs smoothly. It's animated, with green blips representing trains moving through the stations. And it's quiet, so it would be appropriate for use in an office.

My only quibble is the transparent NewFreenScreensavers.com logo that floats over a small bit of the map - but the screen saver is free, so it's hard to complain too loudly. This updated version of the screen saver contains the current Tube map as of August 2011.

    Garmin Nuvi 1370T

    If you're a frequent pond jumper, the Garmin Nuvi 1370T - with maps of Europe and that place across the pond called North America - is a GPS device worth considering.

    Vexia Econav 350 UK

    Billed as the world's first satnav designed to save you money as you drive, the Vexia Econav 350 UK is a great idea in theory, but not all that impressive in practice.

    The Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G suffers from too much bloatware and dated specs, but it's still a good budget smartphone.
