What's New in Version 3.4.2
One of our users had such a rowdy night that he woke up in a different city, hours away, with nothing on his person except for a hula skirt and a bag of Doritos. Our lawyers told us to say this: PLEASE WEAR MORE THAN A HULA SKIRT WHEN RIDING THE BUS. Especially if you happen to live in Canada.
Thank you (Brian).
PS: We also fixed a bunch of bugs.
I love the Transit app but ever since they integrated with Uber I have become increasingly concerned about their privacy protections. Most specifically, the today widget in the Notification Center.
As of this writing I have disabled the Uber integration at least 3 times, and each time I have later found that Uber (as well as Bcycle and Car2Go) were re-enabled on their own. This would not normally bother me, however Uber is a company I actively avoid using because of their incredibly lax practices with personal privacy. (They have played fast and loose by showing people's location on their service to promote new service. Plus many other severe lapses in judgement has made me decide to never use their service)
I understand that may not be everyone's choice but it is my choice. And it is ridiculous that Transit would provide a switch to turn off that integration but periodically "forget" that I turned it off then turn it back on without my involvement.
I use the Today widget that tells me when the next bus is arriving and it is beyond infuriating to see Uber there, "5 minutes for Uber pickup". You just sent my location to Uber when I pulled Notification Center open. I can't believe you would compromise my privacy and my choices in that way. I'll be deleting the transit app because the money for that integration is obviously FAR more valuable than transit's users.
The best for my area
I've tried them all (that support Denver) and keep coming back to the Transit app (been using it pretty much since it debuted when Apple Maps came out). These guys have built the most robust transit app out there with the most useful features and interface for what I need. Moovit is pretty good but I prefer the workflow in Transit and crowd-sourced data is never that useful out here anyway. Citymapper looks nice but they don't support very many cities. Transit app wins.
I'm not a programmer, but if I were this would be the transit app I would work to make. I live in Los Angeles were there's dozens of transit agencies and this app handles it them all with style and class with support for real time arrival information and multiple agency schedules (LA Metro, LADOT Dash, Santa Monica Blue Bus, Culver City, etc). I hope the developer keeps up the good work! This is the one transit app you should have on your phone other than Maps. I wish I could give it 6 stars!
