ETA - Arrive on time
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.

What's New in Version 2.4.3
This update fixes the following issues that affected some users:
- Complication on Apple Watch showing incorrect time or simply 0 minutes.
- Detail on a location not presented when tapping on a location on the iPhone app.
🙊 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.
Back to showing 0 minutes. Seemed to be working for a few days, but seems to have problems with auto refresh and updating. One other thing I wish it would do is “try” to guess my destination based on my GPS coordinates instead of always defaulting to my second location. Hoping for a fix soon!
Wish this would work. Used to have Google Maps and it was always spot on about the traffic and time and guessed really well my next destination. I don’t use my phone when driving so like the convenience of being able to glance at my watch. But it constantly shows 0 minutes to wherever I’m going and usually shows only the location I’m at. Paid for this and the calendar sync. Have installed every update I can possibly find. Please fix!
A swing and a miss.
I was thrilled when I read about this app and immediately purchased it as well as the upgrade. Wished I hadn’t. In theory it’s a much needed complication which could help me out greatly on days where I have to do a ton of errands before going to work etc. Sadly, the complication is wonky and won’t update unless the app is open on the phone - and even then the watch app only seems to work 20% of the time. (AW3 + 7plus, all latest os versions)
I hope they are able to fix it, as in theory this app would be AMAZING, sadly like most things that seem to be too good to be true, they are. The watch app side of this app is broken and I will probably ask for my money back.
