What's New in Version 1..8
Remove minor bugs
This app is not reliable. I use the public transportation system a lot and the bus is never where it says it is. (Ex.) One minute it's at 168th street and hit refresh after 5min...and it's 4stops back. Like what happen? Bus hit reverse??
I also depend a lot on this for work and it has left me waiting and running late often. No wonder it's star rating is only 2! Needs and update for accuracy or customers beware and get a different app even if u have to pay! There is one other good one I'm thinking on spending the $2.99 on if this continues...
When I upgraded this app it had some issues but it worked fine after I removing and installing the latest version 1.8. It runs well on my iOS 8 iPhone 5S. Have to wait and see how it works on iPhone 6 though.
Was ok - now non functional
Previously, it was useful for tracking subway changes on the weekend as well as providing the map (which is a useful reference every now and then)
Now, I can still view the changes as text but the map itself DOES NOT WORK. I only see a collection of flashing dots. Please fix, as it is a key feature of the app.
