Logs you out at the worst times
It’s convenient but about once a month or so the app randomly logs you out- usually right after you’ve purchased a ticket so you’re about to board. This week I and another person had to beg to be let on bc we couldn’t log in and the boat was leaving, so we had to do it from the boat. The crew told us it had happened to about five people the day before. And the worst part is, your password never works to let you back in!
Great alternative to paper ticket
I like that I can purchase tickets via phone. This way, I don’t have to give myself extra time to go purchase the ticket from the counter. As another reviewer wrote, it does randomly log you out at times.
Long standing bugs need to be fixed.
1. Dim the screen when switching off the app from showing your pass. 2. Never log someone out when they have an activated pass, it does it at the wrong time when trying to board a boat. 3. Use your own FQDN instead of ByteMarks
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
