A new phone app recently launched to help bus and subway riders with real-time info from other riders.

The app is called HopStop Live.

It's a free service that went live Monday on the iPhone.

It will be rolled out soon to the iPad and android devices.

It's unique because it covers the entire transit system, with the latest word from fellow straphangers.

There is an official MTA app, but it covers just a few trains centered in Manhattan.
