Convenient app I'm frequently using the app and I like it a lot. Your destination is easy to find, the app automatically suggests the correct tickets (usually hard to find out at the machine), you can also punch in addresses. There's even a map overview included to find your way from a stop to the actual place. The user interface is a bit complicated though. You can even buy stripe tickets and monthly passes. Definitely worth using!
No way to cancel orders, any mistaken orders are permanent. Otherwise it's alright, but this critical flaw can cost you a lot of money, so it really does not deserve more than one star, if even that.
Some important functionality missing 1) Unable to see the Zwischenstops. 2) Doesn't state which platform to take the trains 3) Doesn't understand addresses, only full names of stops. Example: "Lauensteinstrasse 9, 81549 München" will not be found. The app will not be able to suggest the nearest stop (U-bahn/S-bahn/tram etc). The Deutsche Bahn app can do that. Thus, the app's search algorithm is quite weak, especially when it is dedicated for Munich.
Missing functions compared to MVV app The other older app has not so appealing UI but it gives you everything you need. The thing I miss most is not being able to show the passed stops in the journey planner. Being able to see intermediate stops is perfect for bus rides on unknown routes.
Map not offline? / still takes ages to open The map is still not offline. Sometimes I need to check some U/S Bahn stops quickly, but it takes ages to open. It's either not offline or there is some other bug / after the map update it doesn't even load
fails it literally takes the money from your account and does not give you the tickets. It happens often.The good thing is that customer service answers you and you can get the refund.
