Good App but currently flawed
I just want to start by saying that I love the design of this app and prefer it to all the others I have tried. I like that you can see all of your favorite stops all on one screen and it automatically updates the times. Also the times are relatively accurate, which is a plus. BUT, since updated it the most recent time, the app just doesn't work. It crashes within 10 seconds of opening and therefore is useless to me right now. Please fix this! I really dislike the other big CTA apps.
In general though, the only other thing that would really make this app better is if it would list the next 2 or 3 bus/trains for a stop. It would just be really helpful to know how long I would have to wait if I missed the next bus/train - 1 min vs. 10 min makes a big difference.
Freezes & crashes
It used to be ok but now it freezes and crashes every time I try to look up a bus or train that's not on my favorites list, or when I check upcoming arrival times. I had to start using google maps to check bus times--which was incredibly inconvenient and inaccurate. Even when the app was still working I found bus times to be within a minute or 2 of the actual arrival time. Close enough to catch the bus most of the time, but it did cause me to be late for work several times too.
I contacted tech support about the freezing/crashing issues & never heard back. I've deleted this app as there are plenty of others to choose from!
Best and most convenient cta app
I've test driven many cta apps over the years and this one is by far the best for a simple reason - once you set your favorites you can see all the arrival times on one screen. And if you're chasing buses and trains all the time you know how painful it is when the search takes too many taps. I tap the app icon and boom, there's my top bus and train stops and their respective times all in one glance.
