overTHERE is an app for outdoor use in finding out exactly where businesses and other things are located . Simply hold your phone parallel to the ground and point the top of the phone in any direction to hear the nearest thing in that direction. We call these announcements “signs” as if they were audible signs in the environment. Pointing at the signs is a little like tuning an old radio, with each sign being clear when you point straight at it, and getting staticky as you point away from it. This helps indicate exactly where the app thinks the signs are.

This is a bus and train tracker for the muni bus and train lines in the city of San Francisco. The app works quite accessibly and quite accurately, as far as I know it covers all the buslines, bart, and light rails. This is the free version. I have never used the payed one, but apparently that one covers ac transit the bus lines in Oakland.
