Not updated one week post hurricane Sandy This app is needed the most right now, when commuting on the subway is such a mess, and so confusing, and changing day by day. The app's information has not been updated in the last week, making the app effectively useless. Install an official MTA approved app instead.
My choice for delay / service change information I work for MTA New York City Transit and although the MTA has chosen Embark NYC as the best all around app I like this app because the information is straight forward and the trains are grouped together properly unlike in other apps.
Efficient but needs an overview This app is quick, efficient and provides good info, but sliding through all of the train lines is a little annoying. It needs an overview screen so you can see which lines have service changes or at least it needs a different navigation so you can go from one train line to the next that you want to check without having to go through every single line in between.
Looks great! Works well -- usually... I love the way this app looks, and most of the time it's just as useful as it sounds. The only problem with it is that the autoupdating doesn't work right. It seems to work fine at first, but if you haven't used the app for a couple hours, it stops getting updated info, so you have to remember to open the app before you go underground. I also wish the app had an overview screen, so you could see general status of all lines at once and get to a line without flipping through 1 by 1. But, overall, good app!
Does not update in real time. Shows delays that are 2 hours old. Shows supended service 2 hours old, I need an update every 5 minutes!
It would be nice if there was a way to see all service changes on one screen so you don't have to ruffle through all the lines when u make connections
