What's New in Version 1.5.4
Minor bug fixes, push notifications, and IOS7 compliance.
Good, but needs more features
Whilst the update is good, and having the real time boards + journey planner in one app is convenient, a more comprehensive map needs to be uploaded to allow easy searches for start and end locations. E.g being able to type in "Eden park" and it will auto direct you.
Also would be good if users could save "favourite" journey searches that could be stored to allow easy access for timetable information for daily commutes (e.g Saved journeys for work, school, gym, a friends house) and places frequently visited.
Atm google maps provides a more comprehensive public transport suggestions in their map search- it would be good to have access to all the locations and landmarks you can search and route to and from on there within this app.
I think this is an outstanding app and a must have for users of public transport in Auckland particularly for visitors or occasional users. If you are out and about it can use your GPS location to find the nearest bus stop or station, tell you which service to take and the cost of the fare. You can select your start/destination by entering in the address or by selecting off the map. Makes using public transport so much easier.
App good, estimates not so much
The app itself is good, useful for working out routes etc, however it's the estimated time to arrival feature that lets this app down.
18 months of extensive use seems to suggest that the ETA's this app gives are more "aspirational targets" than actual estimates of arrival. It's not uncommon for the app to indicate arrival is imminent, only for the bus to take another 10 minutes to turn up. Sometimes too the service disappears completely from the schedule, yet the bus will still turn up. For a city with integrated ticketing and bus tracking it shouldn't be hard to provide a better ETA than this...
