Excellent app! I am not an American Citizen but I get arround real easy thanks to this application. I do not need to wait for any ride. I just verify the tracks (bus or metro) plus a street view from Google Maps to be sure of what the area looks like and gone I am. A sensation of being free. The assurance of being able to go any where I want at any time and the ability to get arround just like a native. That is, and also feels like Power. All just by having the right information!
Does All It Promises, but Half of What's Needed I used this several times in NYC this last week and have no complaint other than the map needs to magnify a bit farther to really read the fine print on it and I have normal vision. However, you still need to know both about where you are in the city and about where you need to get to for this to really be useful. If you don't already know NY, it's more helpful to have mxData's "NYC Subway" app. It asks where you are (you can look at street signs rather than try to find that same intersection on a tiny map) and then where you want to go, which pops up the station(s) you need. To be fair, NYC Bus & Subway may offer better help for busses, but I did not try/use busses at all. Also, I'd give this limited app 2.5 stars if I could but I can't really give it three stars so I've rounded down to two.
Outdated The subway map is out of date! It doesn't show any changes since 2011 (including Hudson yards, bway-lafayette/bleecker transfer). There are plenty of apps out there with an up to date map; get one of them instead.
Could be SO much better Maps are outdated, and you can't zoom in more than one click. I used it for years until just this week, when I got onto a bus only to find out that its route was changed THREE YEARS AGO! :-(
Used to think this was really cool but now it seems the map is really sensitive and at the least bit of zooming it needs to dwnld again. Doesn't have the aforementioned problem anymore but they need an update BAD. A couple of lines have changed and this app doesn't reflect those changes. Looks like neglect to me.
No images, no info Re-downloaded from previous version. This time, around no images visible and only option is to delete what in essence is a blank image. Un - install and a re -install did not solve the issue. A shame really, as the previous version was ok.
-Fix for 1.5 and 1.6 devices
-Improved double-tap zooming
