What's New in Version 4.0.3
What's New in Version 4.0.3
Resolved a number of minor issues
Slow and clunky design
This app takes an inordinate amount of time to update stations, even with LTE. The screens are also not organized very well, the app just feels unnecessarily bloated. I do appreciate that the map view allows you to see levels of both bikes and docks.
I've found a couple good alternatives: Bikeit - it's very lightweight and iOS 7/8 friendly. The Transit App also includes Bikeshare. Don't waste time with Spotcycle.
Would give 4 but
After losing my favorites multiple times I've gone back to the citibike app. So annoying.
Great app with great features!
