Ratings and Reviews
Hopefully gets better with increased adoption
The user interface is way too cluttered. Hard to understand what is going on and marking the categories is very confusing.
Example: Does a two minute stop count as a delay if the train is already at the station?
It needs to be built around where the current pigeon is. If I'm at a certain stop, give me the ability to mark of a train is here or if I've waited for a long time. Allow comment sections for each station so people can post whatever is relevant at that time.
My new everyday commuting app
I use this transit app everyday. The same reason I switched from Google Maps to Waze for driving, it’s real-time, and shows timing and delays so you can adjust your route if needed. The reporting options are interesting, some are hilarious. Can’t wait for the route planning to be added.
Giving it a 4 for its potential
Beta experience is encouraging. Excited to see what’s next...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
