Almost unusable while driving now. UNDO THE UPDATE!! So clunky and difficult to figure out where you are if you're not familiar with that part of the metro. No ability to turn on satellite view. Just a bunch of lines floating in black space now. Did you even test this in the real world before you pushed it out?? Awful "update." I have used this app for many years to check my commute both before and during. No more. Gotta find something else now.

MUCH harder to use--cluttered up with unimportant icons. The Dark-theme makes it really hard to read road and place names. With the previous version, you could see at a glance where the traffic incidents and road construction areas were, as well as the road conditions. This version is full of visual clutter yet it's hard to find construction information. For example, a major lane closure that was identified on Lexington Avenue in the old version isn't identified at all. Terrible app!

Many cameras don't work, the video doesn't work on quite a few and the severe weather cameras (red cameras) all go offline during a storm. Also missing the "my location" geo button. 1 forward, 2 back.
