Dev is responsive to emails
I like the concept of a map-based app, but noted some issues; rather than just complain in the review, I contacted the dev with the problem I noted, and he responded within hours with a fix.
I'll pay to remove ads, since that's the kind of customer service worthy of supporting! Thanks!
My old review appears below (he said he'll keep the suggestions in mind).
Also, the app uses a TINY FONT SIZE to show arrival times and names of buses: this cannot be increased (not even by rotating into landscape mode). Obviously the devs must be young and pre-presbyopic, as a tiny font size is hard to see, and downright painful in the dark for anyone over 40.
Updating the user's current GPS location is buggy: it'll show where you USED to be, rather than your current location (and forcing it to update locations can take repeated taps of the locate button, as it gets closer to your current location).
It's still better than the other Metro apps, though, since you can use it to check expected arrival times at the transfer point ahead to see if you'll make it with time to spare, or if you'll have to rush.
Best and Accurate LA Metro App!
This app was EXACTLY what I was looking for!
Fast, accurate, and shows how many minutes away the next bus is. It even shows the whole route of the bus when you click on the bus number!
They have other apps for other cities too which is extremely useful because I love to travel.
I use this app as a replacement for Transit LA app which is now out-of-date.
