Essential app for straphangers! It makes getting around on transit a breeze. Real-time departures, automatic rerouting if you miss a connection, audio reminders for when to leave/get off... It's everything I need and even some things I didn't realize I wanted. It can be a bit of a data hog, but that may be because I always have it open since it's such a joy to use.
Lots of bugs with every release. New bugs pop up all the time. Makes me want to uninstall. In the latest version, some bus lines show every single arrival on the main page taking up too much space. Times are not that accurate either. Sometimes the app doesn't refresh arrival times on first lookup. But it does provide routes and transportation based on location. Overall so so
I've taken the hint. So given 4 stars. Seriously speaking, an indispensable app for people like me who would prefer public transport. However it isn't just the app, but the on ground service has some distance to travel, that too rather quickly, to earn one more that's five stars. Love you folks.
The App hardly ever provides accurate train arrivals. The Map is glitchy. Might as well just use the countdown clocks that have been installed in all the subway stations...alot more accurate and safer sincs you dont have to have your phone in plain sight for a mugger to steal it.
lol why does this app work better on my itouch 5th gen, and its 7 years old. Tired of it saying i dont have location services on when i do. Always screwing up departure times so im looking for a another app and dumping this one.
Trying to provide transit data to GO is extremely unpleasant. The app is a good idea, however it crashes and the information it offers is too unstable to be reliable. There needs to be a "I'm currently on this bus" option. When the app crashes, bugs or desynchronizizes with the actual bus departure it's very frustrating to tell it I'm ALREADY on the bus to get your notifications back and provide crowdsourcing data to other passengers. Will give 5 stars eventually but it's hardly a polished product.
Since the start of 2018, we:
- Got a gym membership.
- Slipped on the ice.
- Got lost (Transit wasn't updating to our new location).
- Fixed the app so it always updates to our current location.
- Stepped in a huge puddle.
- Got a service alert notification from Transit but couldn't open it.
- Fixed the app so that the above never, ever happens again.
- Bought crampons.
- Met our valentine at the bus stop.
- Got lots of 5-star reviews from users. (Hint, hint.)
All NYC transit info in one great app! NYC Subway, bus, maps, realtime arrivals.
