Made our trip a breeze
Pros: easy to use, great searching, really smart about its variety of routes. Automatically tracked route changes and announcements to keep you from getting caught in the wrong spot from a closure. Most importantly and best of all it saves the results of your search even without service. So if a c comes before an a you can make last minute adjustments and switch without searching again. It was great.
Cons: Sometimes it didn't take into account how you could cut walking with extra time on the subway. (No I'm not walking .4 miles to the 6! I'll take another train a stop and transfer.)
I visited NYC from out of town an this app was extremely helpful in navigating the subway system. I'm not positive if the departure times are super accurate, maybe that just how the trains are here. But as far as what trains to get on, when to transfer and where to get off, this is pretty much as simple as it gets.
It's nice to have the option of using current location and searchable landmarks as starting and ending locations and have the app tell you the closest stop.
Good for tourists, useless for commuters
When I heard about this I thought this would save me from getting down to the bottom of the platform and seeing the train pull away (I was hoping the departure times were accurate).
If the times we updated real time that would work, but since the trains run every 10 minutes during rush hour, and the schedule is only accurate up to about 15 minutes... Well it's completely pointless to use it to time your trips to minimize waiting times. However if you are not good at reading the subway map and need a route spelled out then this is good for that.
