I believe there are some subway system is in the US using it now too. I believe New York is one but I refuse to ride that system.

So I just looked it up and it should work the same way on the iPhone. Should should not even have to wake up the phone.

I just kept the Oyster in a travel pouch (repurposed airline amenity kit). Wasn't bad, but this is easier.

Love me some NYC subway. Then again, I grew up on it when it was actually sketchy. At least as of last October, no tap yet, but a refillable card anway. Maybe they've improved further.

Cheers.
