What's New in Version 1.5
- updated NextBus schedule fetching
Sadly, not a great app
The first functions, map and transit have all the functions you'd expect, just poorly implemented. To see buildings you have to look at the parking map, making the initial Apple Maps view useless. Maybe use the google maps API? They render many buildings.
Then the transit function tells you when a bus is coming to a given stop, but not on a map, and doesn't show you where the bus actual is. Just use the GT buses app for this.
The other functions seem ok, if not always useful. Overall they need to look at this application from a usability perspective instead of the list of functions. Workshop it with students. Talk to the Human Computer Interaction and Design staff. This does not reflect the talent and knowledge available at GT.
Last Version Not Good in Transport
The Transport Feature is really poor. In most cases it just says the green route does not exist. Or even if it has schedule for the route, it will be missing some stops that you want the app to show the time the bus would arrive. I hope the new version would improve. Or I just use the website instead of the app.
I love the idea of this all-in-one app for Tech students, but most of its functions don't actually work (I've never been able to submit a sliver), and the map and transport features are sometimes unreliable.
Needs some work.
