Thanks fellow Washingtonians for making NextTrain DC Metro the #1 downloaded DC Metro app on the App Store and for helping it break into the Top 10 Navigation Apps!
NEWEST FEATURE: Set up push notifications that arrive X minutes before your daily train arrives at your station. That way you know exactly when to leave the house without even opening the app!
For iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S & iPhone 5 users, FREE Augmented Reality Feature is included!
NextTrain DC Metro tells Washington DC metro train riders how many minutes are left until the next train comes.
NextTrain DC Metro works with all metro stations in the DC Metro area, and for trains in all directions.
Station names can be sorted alphabetically or according to distance from the user's location. Alphabetical sorted stations have a tappable index for quick access. Additional features include walking directions to any selected metro station and storage of favorite stations.
With this application, you will never be in a rush when not necessary. You can savor your last minutes drinking a coffee knowing that it isn't until 7 more minutes that the train will come.
Never wait for trains again. Just two iPhone screen touches will put all the information you need in front of you immediately.
Bonus Feature: Zoomable, Scrollable DC Metro Map also included!
What's New in Version 3.0.2
I've been using this one for a few weeks now on an iPhone 5s. The times are really accurate, usually spot on to the normal DC Metro website AND the times listed on the Station boards. Once in a while, this app is a minute off. Literally one minute off, and that is only about 10% of the time. I have been comparing times for the last two weeks, and this app is really accurate. If you are the kind of person that cannot live knowing this app may be ONE minute off, then you need to re-evaluate your usage of the DC Metro system. Here is a solution for you - get to the Metro two minutes early.
Please fix notifications
In terms of accurately providing train schedules, this app works very well. When it comes to setting up notifications, however, the app fails and closes every time I select a line to provide notifications for, and my favorite lines do not save. Don't be lazy, fix this.
Functionality is same as many apps. The extra feature of notifications doesn't work, and crashes app every time.
