Close to Useless

Months after the new Silver Line began, this app does not show it at all. I had an emergency trip to DC so didn't have my pocket paper map -- downloaded this app while riding the train from Boston to DC. I needed to ride the Metro from Union Station (Red Line) to the outer end of the Silver Line. Total waste of money for me.

In that it uses the Metro logo, I'd thought it would be accurate. Not so.

Updated needed - new lines added

Useless app, it doesn't even include the silver line. Hasn't been updated since 2010! My bad, this app is dead.

This is a good app when it's up to date. It needs an update on the express lines - in particular, yellow.

No silver line

Can’t really evaluate as the Silver Line is not included. Hopefully this will come soon, but not soon enough for our trip
