Ratings and Reviews
It works very nicely and it's pretty accurate. I can plan my escape from school and work with a very high degree of accuracy. I suggest (if possible of course for future development and incremental app improvement) a way to set an array of "favorite" stops which will be able to give me times until a street car arrives, sort of how there is an estimated TOA at some stops. I would also suggest an implementation of purchasing fare on devices as well as use of the NFC technology to be able to "scan" my fare on the street car when I board. Cheers.
Exceeds my expectations
When a guy at the streetcar stop showed me this app I was hooked from the get-go. Since then, in my several times a week streetcar ride it is helpful to know whether I have time to run another errand before the next car. Being able to pinch the map to zoom in or out is a real plus especially when cars overlap on the Birdseye view. Having businesses' names on the map is another bonus. Advertising? Why not, especially from local merchants.
I use the app almost every day of the work week. It's especially helpful in the summer when I don't want to be waiting in over 100 degree weather for too long. Most of the time the app is accurate. If it isn't working right, it is usually easy to tell bc the cars either don't move or they won't pop up.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
