Crowbar for the doors metro says it can open but does not
I have had verizon for the last ten years. I have lived in this place called dc for almost a year, which means I have had to spend countless minutes waiting for trains with nothing to do but watch people play with their iPhones. It is especially frustrating working an 11 hour day, getting to the metro and watching the orange line doors close just as my foot hits the bottom step of a broken escalator.
Then my friend showed me this app. That the planner and gps tell me how to get to the closest metros was neat. But the real moment was when I discovered that it tells you the arrival times of any train at any metro. I can only compare the feeling to what Harold and Kumar felt when they finally made it to Whitecastle, or perhaps even when they escaped from Guantanamo Bay.
For the last three months I have been staring longingly at my calendar for the arrival of the new iPhone 4. I have battled verizon to free me once again from their computer records system "unintentionally" locking me into yet another contract term. Now I have my iPhone and this app. What can I say other than I am happy that I can now prevent precious moments of my life from being taken day by day, minute by minute, escalator by escalator. Seriously, if you're new to the city determined on making life incrementally but inexorably harder on it's inhabitants, a dollar is worth it to make it so much easier.
Nice GPS integration, directions to closest metro
I switched to this app after using one for a while and trying another recommended by the Washington Post. This one was a step up from both of them. The trip planner isn't very useful for experienced metro riders but I can see how it would be useful to tourists or infrequent riders. The nearby station finder works great and so quickly that I no longer use the preferred stations list.
One of the neatest things in it has to be the way the option to find the closest 5 stations gives you a one-click link to directions to the station. I've never tried it for driving but for walking it's been pretty cool.
The Nextbus thing worked great for the first few days I had it (right after the new version added it) and then stopped working. The developer's website says that was because of a change on the actual nextbus servers where the data comes from and it'll be fixed in the next version. That's a drag, but with the only alternative being paying the ridiculous $5 for the app with the Nextbus name I'll wait for this to update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
