Awesome app for Seattle area
This app is great. If you want to miss buses that is. "Oh the bus coming in six minutes. Got down to the stop in three. Oh wait it already came. Better walk to an alternative bus. Oh wait there it is going down the street because this app is trash. AGAIN." The paper schedules never let me down multiple times like this. Don't let the "for an older version" label deter you from this review. This has happened multiple times over the last couple years. Done with this app for good.
This app has been a very useful tool for me for years, its accuracy varies based on the volume of people on the bus but it is still very accurate. I would however like to ask that it stops asking for my GPS. I know the GPS function is very important to this app but with my phone I tend to turn off the GPS so I don't drain the battery. Lately it's been asking me to turn on my GPS or not with a option to disable the prompt and I would like it if it could be disabled. I don't need a prompt I just need the app to be patient and in situations when my battery is low, to function without GPS active using the last loaded map. Still a huge fan just disable the prompt for GPS and I would put five stars no hesitation.
I don't have a car, so I rely on PT for all my transportation needs. OneBusAway has made this very convenient, and I use it many times per day. It has never crashed or caused problems, just gives me the information I need quickly and without fuss. I also love how feature-full it is: it allows me to set reminders (that can repeat on certain days!) for particular bus or route, and even has a left-handed mode that puts buttons in more convenient locations for left-handed operation. In short, I absolutely love this app. Oh, and did I mention that it's free and open-source?
This app never works. It doesn't let me look up stops and my starred stops never work. I use this every day and I hate that I have to use it. If there was a different app I'd delete this one in a heartbeat.
