possibly the worst app ever
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.
Bring back the bus
As a faculty member at SMPH I have depended upon the UW app to get around campus using the wonderful Madison bus system. I am very disappointed by the new bus app - the small space for scrolling and the new location screen zooms way to far out. I hope the developers take the many negative comments to heart and restore much of the look and feel of the former version.
While the new version brings back stops near me - making it much more useful - it still wastes half the screen on a map of the bus stop when accessed from favorites. I know where my favorite stops are, I want to be able to see a full listing of buses!
Bus Functionality Seriously Downgraded
I am really missing the old version of the bus times for this app. While this version is upgraded for other aspects of the app, 95% of the reason I used this was for the bus times. Now the times a relegated to a tiny portion of the screen so you can only see the next 3 busses at a time. Plus with this version there is an error and no times available an inordinate amount. Overall, very frustrating! Hoping for a patch to fix these problems soon...
