All around, an excellent app
I've been using this for many years now and still find it to be one of the best at what it does. The ability to cleanly provide routes that include more than one line, for instance if you're taking the light rail from an outing in JC to Hoboken and then need to catch a train are very well implemented and minimize the amount of waiting for transfers. I have and continue to highly recommend this one.
One tip - if you don't use it frequently but expect you will need it after a night out, open it up ahead of time so it can pull down the updated schedules, so you won't have to wait for that when you're trying to figure out what train to catch.
Makes me miss trains
The info on this app is questionable at best. It tends to have correct departure times of trains out of nyc, but very frequently offers the wrong departing train for connections in Secaucus or Newark. Typically it lists a train leaving 5 minutes later than listed in the timetable, leaving you stuck in the connecting station moments after your train departs without you. Though nj transit supposedly provides the information, their representatives are less than helpful should you dare take the information on this app to heart.
While the advisories are helpful, there is often not enough text space to convey the entire message, resulting in a truncated announcement with no way to read the remaining text. Clicking to another screen with the full message would be a great help.
Self employed commuter
4/9/15: Up til tonight, I've been pleased with this app, although I wish it would show me trains on all lines that go to the Summit, NJ station. There are times I know trains end up or stop at that station, yet the app schedule does not reflect that fact. (I've taken trains that were not shown on the app to Summit.)
Tonight though, I received the message to upload the new schedule and once the upload was complete, and I tried to check a train time for tomorrow, the app crashed. I tried again numerous times, even deleting the app and reinstalling a few different times, and it still crashes.
I also tried reinstalling it without uploading the new schedule, but then the app says there are no trains.
REALLY DISAPPOINTED it isn't working at all now.
