Fixing something that isn't broke...
When I first downloaded this app, it was a breath of fresh air. All it took was one revamp and chock full of unnecessary features to throw that breath of fresh air became a whiff of putridity.
Features that were readily available previously, I now have to dig for. I hardly understand the interface. It's full of features I don't need or use, and it's seems as though it's trying to resemble Google Maps.
If Google Maps can do what I needed it to do as far as bus routes go, I WOULD'VE NEVER DOWNLOADED THIS APP IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!
The only reason I haven't deleted this app yet is because I'm waiting for the developer/s to get the hint that they need to revert to the original, simplistic interface. This app seems to be the only app I know of, currently, that has the potential to do what I want it to...if only they can get the hint.
Can't live with out!
I can 99% of the time depend on this app to let me know my bus status and I'm never stand at the bus stop for more then a minute anymore and finally they updated it to iOS 8 so the font is the smaller sharper text 🙌🏼
I actually take the bus now
Occasionally the times are not accurate (particularly for the M10) but on the whole, the times are spot on. For the first time in my adult life, I actually take the bus on a regular basis.
