Wow. This new version of the app is EXCELLENT. I'm usually very hard on apps, but this checks enough of the boxes that I'm giving it the full five stars. My favorite little feature is that the app is smart enough to show you the inbound or outbound trains based on where you are / what time it is. A few other standouts: It is one click from the trip to the e-ticket; you see live and predictive capacity at each station along a trip; the map tracking feature works every time.

Way better than any of the MTA/LIRR apps of the past. Being able to get your tickets and check the schedules all in the same app is so much more convenient, and the user interface is quick and intuitive for the most part. A really great feature is that you can look up the schedule for your trip and there's a button that allows you to buy/activate the correct tickets right from there, rather than having to switch apps and remember which tickets you need. All around big improvement from before!

Literally so confused as to why everyone is saying the new app sucks and won't even work – I've tested it on a super cheap phone and a mid-range phone and both run it perfectly. Besides that, I REALLY like the new TrainTime – finally all of the disparate apps for info and tickets re the LIRR and MNRR are connected with a design that's simple and clean. There are a few signs that it's an early days product but nevertheless, the criticism it's getting seems very out of left field.
