MTA Subway Time
By Metropolitan Transportation Authority
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
MTA Subway Time gives you real-time train arrival information for selected routes of the New York City subway system. Knowing exactly when your train will arrive will reduce the time you spend waiting on the subway platform, and let you know of any service delays or reroutes before you pay your fare.
What's New in Version 2.1.7
changed map reference
At least it is somewhat functional...?
This the worst app design I have EVER seen. Do you guys need a graphic designer or a programmer? Looks like someone went in Microsoft paint with the shape tool and then poof, out comes this app. I have multiple ways to improve.
First: Have a menu button on the bottom, not the side. This isn’t 2009. All iPhones and iPads use menu options on the bottom. So have an option for lines you frequently use, all lines, and settings.
Second: Make the background white. Then it is easier on the eyes, and just overall looks better. Also, make the app support higher quality devices. I can see the pixels, and the last iPhone with a low quality screen was the iPhone 3G S. That phone came out in 2009. Also, support the iPhone X! Don’t do what you did with the iPhone 5, and wait 4 years till it fills the whole screen. So just make it overall nicer looking.
Third: Add a map option. I won’t use this option much, but many tourists would love it, as they don’t get confused. The kiosks in the station have a map that you can tap, and it tells you where you go. You can implement that in the app.
Fixing these vital things, will make customers feel so much better about their service with the MTA. Thank you.
It’s really weird the timing is wrong and some of the trains even vanish from the status. I know that more train schedule are in the app now but if small glitches are not fixed than I don’t think it’s a good idea to branch to other stations. If it’s fixed that’s good but if not that’s just well it’s an app. Check with what was first here 1,2,3,4,5,6 than NQR these train info it’s early or late than its time. But, the NQR is definitely the worst the timing is soooo off and like I said before it vanishes 🤣. It’s TRUE 😑
good candidate for deletion
The app is so sensitive to data availability that I can rarely use it on a subway platform, even when I can access other data.
The app and the associated monitors often miss trains completely.
It’s frustrating not to know when the subway will come, but the frustration of the app working badly outweighs that, so I will probably delete the app.
