1999: "Wow, there's a website for everything!"
2004: "Jeez, there's a blog for everything!"
2009: "Criminy, there's an iPhone app for everything!"
The latest one to prove that last point is Exit Strategy NYC. It's almost a point of pride among city dwellers to have a certain amount of hard-won, site-specific knowledge in their heads like "If I have to take a crap around 34th and 9th, there's that little place two blocks away I can sneak into and use the bathroom without having to buy anything" and "If I want to take the 6-train uptown and wind up exiting right by the staircase at 51st, I have to get on the train by the fourth pole at Canal Street," et cetera. Exit Strategy NYC tells you which part of the subway car you have to board to wind up at any specific point at any station in the system, which seems totally absurd if you don't live in a city that's always in a rush, but will undoubtedly have value among those who are always looking to shave a couple seconds off their commuting time.
Next we're waiting for the Great Free Bathrooms to Use app, which is sure to follow.
