Works... Kind of Shows estimates of when the next trams will arrive at any given stop, which is super useful - just a little frustrating given they tend to be wildly inaccurate. Good idea.
Clunky but works The interface is a little clunky using interface layouts elements that would've been common a few years ago but are now superseded by better ways of interacting. On the plus side the data aspect of it works quite well with a great degree of accuracy.
Useful but not user friendly Difficult to set a tram stop as a favourite. And this is one if the more useful functions for quick use.
Dumb and dumber Correct me if I am wrong but the ONLY WAY to edit/delete the Favourite list is to uninstall the entire app and reinstall it again... Nothing gets dumber than this really. No, I am wrong, actually the world's most liveable city's very public transport system itself is dumber, and at times a lot more frustrating to use...
Shocking Either I'm too stupid to be allowed on the streets or this app is an affront to usability. Fought it for 20 mins to get info on a favourite tram. Gave up, uninstalled and going back to paper. Life's too short. Oh, and I work in the IT industry
Actually works Not something I use regularly but the few times I have the App has been correct to the odd minute or so. Just picks up your location and gives you estimated arrival times for trams going either direction from where you are.
