Almost added an hour to my trip
I was at NY Penn bound for a stop on the Raritan Valley line. This app showed the first two possible scheduled departures at 10:07am --> 11:16am (connection at Newark Penn), and 11:07am --> 12:16pm (same connection). I missed the 10:07 train. It turns out that the 10:14am NEC train also allows connection to the same Raritan train that the 10:07am train connects to. If I had relied on this app, I would have been waiting another hour for the next train.
Having incomplete info and relying on it is actually worse than figuring it out on the fly. I'm lucky I chanced the latter.
I really wanted this app to be reliable. But this first impression will likely be the last. Just using the web browser is less convenient, but it's worth using if it means avoiding an unnecessary hour of travel time.
from one app developer to another
The app's vastly superior functionality and virtually perfect levels of arrival and departure accuracy simply cannot be denied. Thank you for a GREAT app that does exactly what it's supposed to do. Today I took the 10:14am to NYC and got on the train at 10:20. Did I wait? No seribob - and why? Because the app told me that this NJT was running late and showed me a second by second countdown to it's true arrival. Incredible. The UI is a bit dated (I'd love to see a more current interface) but functionality is what makes this app the gem that it is. Kudos on a job very well done. Keep it up.
Excellent, with minor Frustrations
This is very useful and well-executed. I have relied on it for over a year with great results. There are only 2 frustrations: 1) Trains that run after midnight don't show up where expected, and are unintuitive to find. 2) Although one can save pairs of stations for easy access, the app doesn't use your location to automatically chose which one of those stations you are currently at, and one has to be careful to make sure which end of that pair one is viewing the schedule for.
