Works good, shy of great Works as advertised, and has the most updated PATCO schedules as far as I can tell. I use this on morning and evening commutes and it's accurate. "PATCO Updates" doesn't appear to render the Twitter feed, which I think is the intent, instead I get a "Latest PATCO Updates" textbox and OK button. "See Special Schedules" was previously causing a crash on my phone, but now appears to be working and fetching a link to the cursed Special Schedules PDF file (nice work!) "Favorites" functionality would be much welcomed, with the ability to save my Morning and Evening commutes. Using GPS Location to select nearest station by default would also be appreciated.
Good interface. Fast. Bad data The app is clean. Quite simple. I would have removed the ad banner. But the real deal breaker, the data is not up-to-date. PATCO has a different schedule for different weekdays, and the app still shows the same schedule from Monday through Friday. Uninstalling it
PATCO schedules change frequently. This app does not record last minute changes, however, it does provide the user with a near accurate schedule. Do Not Use: If you require to the minute accuracy!
Fair Easy to use for the most part. The schedules, however, aren't always accurate. For instance, there is no train departing at 7:15 from Philadelphia tonight (Sunday). My friend waited 20 minutes at the platform with her young children due to this misinformation.
Not up to date PATCO changed their schedule (again) so this was a good chance to test this app. Not only was it wrong about the current schedule but about what the schedule used to be. If I'm still asking where is my train with this app then it is a failed app.
What's the point if the times are not accurate? I've relied on this for accurate schedules and have missed trains and waited for over 20 minutes because of the innaccuracies.
** UPDATE: Code changes to parse and list special schedules due to PATCO's website change. **
Also added ability to download special schedules (PDF viewer required).
