Unlike mobile web tools, it's possible for apps to work without internet access. However, the apps listed here depend on an internet connection to be fully functional.

Google Maps for Mobile

View maps and plan a trip by transit, walking, biking (or driving). Search maps for restaurants, shopping or other services. Find out more on the Google Maps for mobile page, or point your mobile browser to m.google.com/maps

Layar Reality Browser

Android, iPhone 3GS and newer (Check the Layar site for the latest compatibility information.)

Data layers are available to show ART-Arlington Transit bus stop locations with ART RealTime arrival information, Capital Bikeshare locations with bike and dock availability information, and WalkArlington Walkabout points of interest.
