Instantly view travel time (by car, transit* and/or walking) to your favourite places. Share your arrival time securely to friends and family. In a tap get driving directions in your favourite maps app.
As seen on TechCrunch, MacStories, iMore and AppAdvice!
ETA is your personal assistant providing you with quick access to travel times, transit and driving directions to all your favourite destinations.
Driving times to your locations are conveniently presented on a single screen with an indication of current traffic alongside. In a tap you're delivered pre-routed, turn-by-turn driving directions in your favourite navigation app.
Travelling by transit? No problems, ETA has you covered. In addition to driving and walking, ETA offers travel time travelling by public transportation (check http://www.apple.com/ios/feature-availability/#transit to see if this feature is available in your area).
ETA is simple to use and provides you with the information you need to navigate your city. It's also a great companion to the navigation apps you've come to love (including Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, Transit and CityMapper).
ETA is available as an iPhone app, a widget in Today View and on your Apple Watch.
To allow ongoing updating of the Complication for Apple Watch, ETA needs to operate in the background on your iPhone. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

“[ETA offers] a simpler, faster and generally less cumbersome experience [than maps apps]” - TechCrunch
“The app features a beautifully minimal, elegant design that is top notch.” - AppAdvice
“This app may be simple, but it is invaluable for people like me who regularly travel across highly trafficked areas.” - iDownloadBlog
“It's simple, but it's a really nice way to just glance at travel times without messing around with a maps app.” - Life Hacker
“ETA is an extremely useful app that I will use all the time. It's the kind of thing Apple should build into Maps.” - TUAW
"While many map apps can give you estimates for a current route, none of them let you save locations as conveniently as ETA does." - iMore

Welcome to a new update to ETA. In this release, we're excited to unveil powerful functionality that takes advantage of iOS 12 and watchOS 5, allowing you to use Siri to access a host of ETA features.
On iOS 12 you can now ask Siri to add locations, calculate and display travel time and/or initiate turn-by-turn directions without having to head to the ETA app.
On watchOS 5, ETA has made its way to the Siri watch face showing travel time to favourite locations. At the appropriate time travel to calendar appointments is also displayed (requires an additional purchase of the Calendar Sync IAP).
We hope you enjoy the update. If you have any questions or feedback, please drop us a note at email@example.com
Please note: for optimal performance on the Apple Watch ensure that permission settings for ETA allow Location Access as 'Always' and that 'Push Notifications' are enabled.
Ratings and Reviews
Not yet ready
I haven't heard back from you, I love the idea of this app but its still incomplete. Here is what will usually happen, i will want to get in my car, plug my iphone in so that it will connect to carplay, during that split second that its connecting, i want to look at the widgets and see how long its gonna take me to get to work, home, etc. It tells me the minutes on that location, but not the route. So i have no idea which freeway this app is using to tell me its gonna take 25 minutes to get to wherever. What if i get excited that its only gonna be 14 minutes to get home and im gonna assume that its referring to the 210 freeway (my usual route) when in fact theres an accident and instead it was 14 minutes using the 15 freeway. Oops! This is why i deleted this app 2 years ago because i didnt feel confident using it without that extra bit of info on the today view. I dont want to tap on the preset location, unlock my phone, and look at the map when it could just say "14 minutes via 15 freeway". Please address this, i cannot use this app otherwise
Hi Jae, Sorry for the delay in responding to your support ticket, you should have email now. Appreciate the feedback and we're working on allowing more info, including routes, in the widget.
🙊 High hopes for complication but simply doesn’t deliver
I bought this for the sole purpose of having an accurate ETA to work displayed in real time as a complication on my Apple Watch. I installed it and gave the app all the proper permissions (including making sure the iPhone app is set to “always” with location). When you open the iPhone app, it auto updates and accurate info is displayed. But the app, iPhone widget and watch complication simply do not update with any noticeable regularity. The complication, in particular, usually shows highly inaccurate stats (showing heavy traffic even though rush had completed 12 hours prior).
I wish this was a rare occurrence, but even after a full week of careful testing, making sure everything is set correctly, it simply doesn’t work as advertised. The developer said this newest version fixed the issue. It didn’t in my case, and there’s nothing special about my setup. I’d recommend you definitely not purchase this app even if the developer updates with “fixes”. I’ll be asking Apple for a refund on this.
Hi there, really sorry for your experience with the Apple Watch. May I ask - have you reached out and contacted support? We'd love to know more about your situation to be able to help you either setup ETA correctly, or if an issue with the app get more info so we can fix.
Good idea for an app, but ...
I really want to love this app. In fact this app is on my home screen even though I have issues. Often, I will open it and it will remember my location being somewhere else and I will have to force close for it to update. If I don’t notice, I’ll hit the button for directions and it will give me a route starting from the wrong location, since it sends coordinates to the connecting map apps instead of real addresses and “current location”
Watch apps and widgets don’t update every time I look at them, creating a few extra steps to get them to work or else just give up and open maps directly. Sometimes the app won’t update at all and I need to force close and restart it
Reason I still use it is that it’s nice to see drive times to multiple locations at once. Makes me learn traffic tendencies better even if I am not interested in going to everything on my list. And when it works it’s fantastic, although I still always open the link to google maps to ensure the routing is right, as it uses Apple maps as a backbone which isn’t always as accurate for times. Why can’t I choose which map service to give time estimates for.
Good app, but lots of room for improvement
Thanks so much for the detailed feedback. Firstly, we'd love to hear your thoughts on our latest update 2.4.6. In this release we fixed a lot of Apple Watch issues. I'm sure your experience there would be improved. In terms of the location update and passing stale data to the navigation app - we're looking into this as has been reported by others. We hope to have an update soon that improves that elements. Thanks again for your insight!
