ISO a better alternative
I have never felt compelled to write an app review in my LIFE! but this app is so bad I literally felt a personal responsibility to all other transit users to warn them of all its pitfalls. I am usually very tech savvy, never have had trouble figuring out any other iPhone applications, but this one is extremely user unfriendly and it has caused me to ride the rails all wrong on SEVERAL occasions. It only shows upcoming trains which is helpful to minimize scrolling time, but prevents you from seeing comprehensive or complete train schedules. You can't even look at the details for the train you are on because the app thinks it has passed! The layout and button placement is poorly designed and I often end up in the wrong place as a result. And for God's sake, WHY isn't there a MAP!! I continue to use this app only because there is no better option, but I do want everyone to know that I wish I could delete it from my phone and never think of it again. NJ Transit, please can't we just have this one thing!
The most annoying thing about this app
The improvements were MUCH needed. But it boggles my mind that they can't seem to fix one simple thing. The orientation change from (ticket view) to the (main menu view). When you open the app, and you have an active ticket, the default view is the (active ticket in landscape mode). But if you hit the back button to the main menu (default portrait mode) the app keeps the landscape orientation and cuts the main menu in half. The app freezes at this point, so you have to close the app and open it again. I go through this routine with this app every-single-day!!!!!!!! FIX IT!
Speaking for just the app, not NJ Transit Service...
The update to this app is actually really great. They finally made it so that when you look at the schedule for a route, you only see all the upcoming trains (I don't need to know when the 6AM train comes as I'm leaving at 8PM.) No longer will I have to scroll through hours and hours of trains to see what I need- hurrah! Great update.
Now if only it would refund me for the horrible service in April...
