Remember: the New York subway is a complex system and can't follow the timetables perfectly. The MTA timetables are included for guidance only.

Much more accurate than Google
I've had this app for years. I find that Google maps is overly optimistic about the time it takes to get somewhere on the NYC subway. This app is consistently more accurate about total travel times. And I love being able to easily check the list of subway service changes (weekend/maintenance). I've found it to be only missing a change once in many years. I don't use the train schedule predictions except to note how often the trains come as I don't believe the trains actually run on schedule. This app gives you one route choice so I sometimes also check Google to compare routes. You can usually still see the subway map even when there's no cell service so I also use it to check the map generally.
Still the best for NYC Subways...
Been using this app for years, and have always come back to it after trying others.
Clean interface accessible info, clickable map, seamless background alert updates... At times, new MTA info takes a while to make it out via a new releases, but that's not much of a criticism. Additionally, the alerts are only as good as the MTA data provided, again, not a criticism.
I do suggest a "merger" with the app "Exit Strategy," which tells me the exact car that is closest to the particular station exit I will use. Between these two, nobody needs another app.
This app never seems to have an update so when there's a glitch there's no fixing the problem. Seems MTA created the app and then forgot about it. Right now the planned work advisories on the train lines is only showing trains 1, 2, 3, and 4 on my app; No other trains. It used to show them all before but now it seems to have a problem. I've deleted the app and downloaded it a few times from the App Store and it's still not working properly. I email app support and they never reply. It's not a free app, so it's very frustrating that there's never an update to fix its bugs. Just like the real MTA, they take your money but don't give good service.
