Definition of average Not a lot of bells and whistles here, just schedules and track numbers to help you find the right train to board. Works best when everything is on schedule. I wish it would send a push notification when trains are delayed, especially the trains I typically take (if I could flag my favorite train times and days).
It's OK Clunky app that takes a couple beats too long to load. It gets finicky about the back button. I get frustrated that I have to work backwards if I need to find the stops of the train I'm on. (I have to back out and search by arrival time because the train had already departed the point of origin.) It would also be nice to see WHEN the train is arriving at those in-between stations. Also would be great if it had real time delay information. I don't love it but it does 95% of what I need it to do.
When it works When it works, it's great..when it doesn't it stinks. When there are service delays it won't show you what the normal schedule would have been and when you need to get to the station. When there is no signal, there is no offline backup schedule.
Does it get the job done? (Unless there are train delays) Yes - but about as temperamental as a toddler tantrum in a supermarket. If trains are delayed at ALL, no results will show up. None. If you lose your internet connection, any search results pulled up prior disappears. If you hit the back button, search results disappear. If you lock your screen, search results disappear. This is atrocious since most of Grand Central provides spotty data coverage and many arrive via the subway w/o cell coverage. The Back button almost always completely exits the app. If you exit the program, your search results disappear. No other Android app has EVER had the Back button exit since 2012. If your train has departed, you cannot find it's info again to view its list of stops or list of times if your results have disappeared. I find myself having to ScreenShot every useful screen I get to for fear of it's sudden disappearance. It happens every single time I use the app. Every. Single. Time. Are there any benefits? Yes - It WILL show the time of an upcoming train and tell you the track number it's coming in on. Is it worth it? Barely.
Issues I'll change my rating once they fix the following: allow users to see the current schedule especially when the service change was from a previous day. Mnr is running on schedule today but I can't see jack
Very helpful I love this app! It's extremely helpful to be able to get my track number ahead of arriving at Grand Central - I can plans which entrances and stairwells to take before I get there! I also like being able to program in my typical trips/times so I can just get my schedule and track with the click of a button (or 2!). Great job!
