Now We're Talking
IT WORKS! Now granted, the time data from this app is user fueled, and not enough people have cared to download this app since it wasn't functioning before, but it's a big step up.
Only feature I wish it had: A favorites list. When I jumping around to and fro, I'd love to be able to save my favorite airports and not fumble around with search every time I need data. This isn't too much to ask right? ;)
But still, this is worth the download. High Five TSA!
After a year of not working, it works.
App now opens and seems to function. It does what it is intended to do and does it quickly. Love the wait time feature, it's a great heads up!
It would be nice to know the operating times of the different TSA locations, regular and PRE. For instance, I'm here at Denver for a 5:30am flight. At 4:00am, no an officer in sight. And when does LA terminal 7 upstairs location operate?
