Tube Refund apps for your iPhone

iPhone users can submit refund claims for London Underground delays pretty quickly with the launch of two apps. Under the Customer Charter, if you're delayed by more than 15 minutes, you're entitled to claim the cost of your single journey on the Tube. TfL's website actually is fine for making a
claim, but with an iPhone app, many people might be more likely to remember to do it. You can literally claim while your delay takes place.

The company behind Tube Refund, one of the apps, says that there were approximately 1,996 delays across the Tube network last year (38 delays a week). Hopefully you're not going to get that amount personally, but the which only costs 59p, could pay for itself pretty quickly.

The other app iRefund is $0.99 has fewer ratings than Tube Refund.

If you have an iPhone give one a try, when you're next delayed. They'll make a useful edition to the other London Underground iPhone apps reviewed last year.

Thanks to TechCrunch for the heads up on this.
