A newly introduced app for smartphones and tablets points out the best mode of transportation based on weather, traffic and the user's personal preferences.

The app, called i-TOUR, was developed by Italian company Formit Servizi SpA and is designed for use in large, urban areas in Europe. It continually monitors public and private modes of transportation so that if something changes an accident up ahead, for example, or the user's desire to stop for breakfast it can adapt and re-route the traveler via the shortest, most convenient method available.

i-TOUR uses an open-source system to tap into the databases of transportation systems in the area and deliver real-time information.
