What's New in Version 6.1
Support for iOS 6 Maps routing.
seems to have trouble with mixed mode routes
So far the app has bee accurate and clear with LA Metro subway routes, but has been unable on every attempt to generate a route at all when set for mixed train/bus routes. The "unable to route" error comes up even with the same start and end points that a train only query returns a route for just fine. I'm sure there are myriad technical hurdles to grabbing and packaging up municipally supplied data like public transit maps, but transit mapping with an app must be accurate and reliable, especially in a major sprawling city like LA or Chicago or wherever. I can make use of it in my own city where I'll generally know what to do when it fails, but can't recommend it for children, loved ones, vacationers, or really any non natives to a city where wrong information or no information at all could put one in the wrong part of town (in every sense of the word) or leave one stranded.
Needs update!!!! Last update Sept. 2012
DO NOT BUY!
I wonder if the iTrans company even cares! I've emailed tech support like 10 times with one reply back in 2012.
I like the app when it does it's job... Right now it does not even give you a timetable. Who dropped the ball here? Apple/iPhone, Los Angeles Metro, or iTrans? Perfect app when it's Up-to-date!
Don't buy till the new update if they ever update
Don't get this!!! Not helpful at all, and whenever I type my destination it keeps saying there is no bus stationed there. I know for a fact that there are buses that runs by the places I need to go! Shame there are no refunds...hopefully will update and perhaps then I will change my review. Too bad it won't let you submit zero stars.
