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.)


***Developers, please get rid of the new default to City Hall when the app is opened. It's just annoying!***

I was peeved when Apple got rid of built-in mass transit directions (all right, I still am), but this is a great app for the New York City subway. It's awesome that it works without data for when one is underground.

Update: Google Maps for iOS is great, but this is still the best transit app for New York City: it works underground, and its timetables and trip planning are more accurate. Don't hesitate! Get this app; you'll thank me.

Very Helpful

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.
