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.
I’ve tried a bunch of these apps before and I’ve gotta say this is one is the best so far. Think Waze for commuters. I use it every morning and it gives me the best route options to avoid all the “train traffic”. Plus the design is super cute 👍🏽
Getting around happier
Yesterday I had to get uptown and the app said the B was delayed 20 minutes with like 4 reports. Instead I walked to the C and sat on an empty train. Life saver.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
