All in all, it's worth the download
This app is perfect for information! This totally beats frantically searching all over safari for times! Everything is right there for you. However the usability if this app could be much improved. The screen in where you can select a time for future train departments is very hard to see due to the colors. It would also be really nice to have a way to delete some of the 'favorite pairs' that appear in the left as I've accidentally added a few in that are unneeded.
I really think a 'no trains available' pop up or screen when trying to select two places in which a train does not run. I got a shotty grey screen, I though the app might have been broken. With minor tweaking this app in the works of becoming a powerful tool! All in all it's worth the download!
Easy to use, but I sometimes miss trains
The metro north official app is a pain to use, and this is much easier, with a clean, simple interface and display. However, it automatically switches directions, frequently; I'll set it to go from Westchester to grand central, but if it's a time of day the app thinks I should be going the other way it quickly switched back, sometimes without my realizing it. I'll head to the station only to discover that the train I'm attempting to make is from grand central and I missed the corresponding train in by a few minutes, making me late and leaving me with a half hour wait at the station.
Track info for gct doesn't show show up until like 1 minute prior to departure, if at all, making track info for gct useless.
The settings button crashes the app. Tried to tell app support about that, but you cannot contact app support until you set up your email - which you cant do because settings crashes the app...
The rest of the app is pretty good. Schedules are accurate. If they can update gct track info quicker and fix the settings crash, this app would get 4 maybe 5 stars...
