What's New in Version 4.1.1
Maintenance update that resolves minor issues.
The first thing that should be added is the ability to navigate( Google Maps) right from the app. Notifications with vibrations as I ride by bike stations. I'm not familiar with the area so returning the bikes on time was almost impossible. The time should be increased to 1 hour since tourists won't know where the stations are located at. That should be enough time to drop off the bikes.
Way better than Hubway
Allows you to see all locations, not just the ones closest to you. Also, has accurate data about locations that are no longer online, which the Hubway maps do not. Some kinks but it's the best thing out there.
Why is this app so buggy now?
What happened to this app? It used to work so well. Now it has bugs all the time.
Sometimes the station near my house does not appear. And I'm not able to view stations outside of my immediate vicinity. That means that I don't know where I should bike to dock the bike. That's actually dangerous because I have to take my phone out while I'm biking to recheck stations near where I'm going. Going to look for another app now.
