What a farce
I was in the app beta and was impressed with how responsive the devs were to limitations in the usage of the app and how to easily access information. All seemed well! But now the app has come out, it’s apparent that a user-friendly interface is just lipstick on a pig of worthless information. Several times now I have waited patiently at a bus stop for a bus that did not arrive when it’s “live tracking” declared it would. And each time, after the scheduled time the “live” designation was turned off and the app declared the bus to have gone past. Essentially, if the bus doesn’t make the timetable, it claims it has no idea where it is and gives you no further info. This is no more useful than the previous apps which just mutely gave the timetable and had nfi where a bus actually was. Why on earth is this happening? Is the “live” tracking a farce, and there is no actual geolocation or manual tracking taking place? Is there actual live tracking, but it’s being turned off when the bus is behind schedule? I can’t decide which of those is worse! But either way the presentation of this apps function is entirely dishonest, and seems to have benefitted only the developers bank accounts.
Most used transport app on my phone!
I was part of the beta testing and am impressed with the way the developers took on board improvement suggestions. It’s a very slick app with exactly the information I need at my fingertips. The icing on the cake would be an Apple Watch app for setting up alerts for a watched bus or train, for setting off in time to get a specified service etc.... I did get a service disruption notification on my watch for the first time today which was very useful. Gold standard for transport apps!
A good improvement, shows how late the bus is going to be. Most useful feature would be to know if the train station car parks are full. Transperth must collect this data from SmartParker tag-on’s?
Also, if you have more than one car and switch between using them for parking, not sure why continued need to make a car ‘active’ to be able to park it. Can’t SmartParker remember more than one car?
Otherwise a good update.
