Finally! An Exemplary App Although the functionality of OBA has always been fantastic, I spent years in jealousy of iOS and how much better their version of the app looked. Well, finally the tables have turned and the Android app far surpasses iOS (in my opinion). With this visual overhaul, I felt compelled to share how great this is. Looks great, works perfectly, and is an absolute must have for anyone using public transport in Seattle. Great work guys!
Great from inception, better every update If you regularly use transit in one of the cities it covers, download this app to massively improve your quality of life. ... Now for TL;DR: Every schedule, route, and stop for every King County Metro or Sound Transit vehicle in my pocket. Realtime info on how off-schedule those vehicles are, based on radioed odometer data. All of the above integrated seamlessly with a handy map of the service area. Regular updates, mostly for the hard, thankless task of fixing bugs. It doesn't get better than this, folks.
Worked for 3 months It was great for 3 months. Now doesn't work. Doesn't give reminders. Bus times ate wrong so i keep missing my buses. I have let the developer know but no improvement. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Getting rid of it now. Tired of missing buses. Bye
doesn't play nice with N tortuously slow and crashy verging on unusable since upgrade to Android 7. on the plus side, predictions are improving.
worked better before the updates This App worked great then i downloaded the recent update and now it gives me the wrong times,doesn't give real time status like it use to, and also frequently says "unable to give stops" so at times it doesn't work whats the point of an app if it doesn't work.
O.B.A. is AWESOME This app has been a life-saver SO many times! Easy to use, easy to customize. Thanks for always being up-to-date as well.
