Excellent and Very Useful!
This is a wonderful app and practically essential to any light rail user.
Some suggestions and fixes for a future update for the app:
1) The light rail station arrival times in Downtown Phoenix on the streets of Washington & Jefferson and Central & 1st Ave are flipped for Westbound and Eastbound. i.e. If you select the Westbound station it reflects the times for the Eastbound arriving train and vice versa. Just a simple fix.
2) A suggestion to show an ETA for a selected time of the train that you're currently on. For example, if you were to get on at 8:35am at University & Rural heading Westbound, what would be the ETA for each station after that for that specific train?
It would be neat to have this as an option to select, and would make planning and timing trips super nice!
Other than that, thanks for making such a useful app!
The application itself feels very simple, yet effective. With a clean interface and no learning curve I would definitely mark it as a 5 star app. The power of simplicity is not achieved easily and and is something we have come to expect from Apple. I'm not surprised to see an approved app like this in their store.
Great app. Responsible developer
This app is a must have for anyone living in light rail territory and zipping around town! The other day the times were not updated so I emailed the developer and to my surprise he immediately responded and fixed the times that night! He was very responsible and I would recommend it!
