Ratings and Reviews
Worst than the previous version
This is definitely a step back in terms of improvement.
The previous version looks outdated as the buttons seem humongous, but at least those very buttons were very responsive.
On the flip side, the new version looks nice and sleek with it's small buttons and various layouts and pages. BUT (with a big one)... it is extremely laggy and freezes when you press on buttons that changes the page. And once it does, you need to wait at least 10 seconds for it to load to the next page, just so you can press and wait again, repeat that a few times and you’ll eventually get to you page.. if you get fortunate enough that the app doesn’t reset itself.
And choosing the elderly version won’t help the situation at all. (And the design of this is just plain illogical, how can elderly get used to small buttons with so many changing pages..)
All in all, I used to use this a lot when it’s the old version, it’s as simple as it gets for you to check a wide range of public transportation with quick accurate precision.
But this new one is just terrible and it’s just complicating things instead of simplifying them. Definitely the most un-user friendly HK public transportation search app.
p.s. the only “mobility” part of this HKeMobility app is that you need to move a lot of pages to get to what you need... disappointed...
p.s.2 shouldn’t this app be focusing on user friendly and simplicity?
Inferior and Buggy
It’s definitely the worst public transportation app I have ever used in Hong Kong, and embarrassingly this was developed by the Transport Department. The app is slow and hard to navigate with, the design is ugly and the choice of not using google map but instead of an open map solution is regrettable. This is supposed to an update of an old version! Where is the improvement? Why making it look differently (but not prettier), and not improving the user experience is wasting everyone’s time downloading this app and trying it out. What a waste of taxpayers money.
Terrible, it crashes
I tried to add camera snapshots, when I tried to add the fourth one, it crashes.
When I tried again, the 4th camera indicated that I need to delete it when I haven’t even added it. I pressed the button and it crashed again. I tried a few times, same thing! I gave up and removed the app
