possibly the worst app ever
Update: How did you manage to make it worse? Are you trolling us...?
Giving this app one star only because it won't let me give it none. I'm late right now, as usual, because this app takes forever to load and constantly crashes. Now I've missed my bus, again, because I spent ten minutes trying to get this app to work, again. Should have learned by now not to rely on it and just go wait at the stop and hope for the best, because I would more likely be on time that way. If you use this app for something other than the bus tracker, probably it's fine. But this app is possibly the worst transportation app I've ever had the displeasure of using. This is made even more upsetting by the fact that it is in fact the only thing available for transportation apps in Madison. It makes me wonder if they have put so little effort into cleaning up the bugs because the devs know we have no other choices? Surely a world class university can do better. So sick of the stress this app causes me every. single. day.
It Works, Most of the Time
The times when the bus arrive are accurate. The only issue with the app is that it doesn't always know where you are at. If you know your stop, you can still find the arrival time. I think this app should be updated more frequently.
Not bad currently. Library info is handy. Gets hung too often using some features and map is quirky. Really need the map to display reliably. Looking forward to improvements in the exist tool set instead of advancing graphics any further.
