San Francisco Bay - Clipper Card app They would get a lot more downloads if it was clear that this works for the San Francisco bay area. I was able to get my balance, a few days of transit info. in which I had used both BART and AC Transit, and a few auto-load's all by just using this application and the Near Field Communication (NFC) to read my card.
Doesn't work with BART value This app works with my Clipper card and Samsung Galaxy s4. The reading is fast and easy. However, the app only shows the CASH value on the card. No information about the current value of BART fare on the card is shown. It does provide information about BART autoload though (in the refills section). However, the lack of BART value shown is a dealbreaker. Please fix this. Not sure if the same goes for Caltrain, Muni, and other users.
Works well on supported devices It usually gives you the info you need but it doesn't handle unexpected problems well. You may need to hold your card a few centimeters away from the phone to get a good read. If it doesn't work for you, try NFC Card Reader to see the raw data. If that doesn't work, your phone and/card combination will not work together.
Great app, but wish I could disable NFC feature Ignore the idiots who complain that their transit card isn't supported. If you didn't read the description before you downloaded the app, you don't deserve to review the app. My problem with this app is that the NFC feature is constantly on. Every time I placed my phone on my wallet, the app would open and create a new scanned card. I could not find a way to disable the NFC detection in the app without disabling it globally. It was enough of a pain that uninstalled an otherwise great app.
Works for Clipper Card! Love how it gives me my current value and my trip and reload histories. Also love how NFC auto-opens the app when I scan it. My NFC is not always on so this feature is useful. No need to look for the app!
Works perfectly on my Nexus 4 with a Clipper card. Shows my balance, my travel history, and my payment history. (A little scary, actually, to know that anybody can read your card and see where you've been). Also: no ads, no bullshit! Thanks, codebutler!
