Crashing & Lack of user reports limits usability App uses Gov data which is (supposed to be) updated hourly, so user reports are important for real time data. But crashes prevent using the timer and frequently prevent submitting the wait time. Saved preferences does not save the choice of lanes ie Std, Ready or Sentri. Historical trend graphs are great for picking a good time to cross. With thousands of people crossing at TJ every day, this could be a great app if it really collected real time data, but with only Gov data, it is only so-so.
Good, but... In case you're wondering why it only updates hourly, that info comes from US CBP. It has nothing to do with the app. However, when reporting user wait times the app should disregard "false" iReports. In other words, toss out times that do not reflect other iReports. These skew the average wait times. Also, I'd like to see old iReports so I can see wait time trends.
Use regularly In my experience the CPB reported wait times are almost never accurate for the California San Ysidro auto crossing...they generally report a significantly shorter wait time than is reality. The 'user reported' data however is generally spot on.
Love the app I use it every time I cross the border and it shows acurate info every time. Tried other apps for border crossing times and none of them where as polished as this one. It would be nicer if showed official info provided from the border patrol and user submited diferently.
For some time now I have been unable to submit an iReport due to the app crashing. I just got the new Samsung Note 5, hoping the problem might go away, but it didn't. The app still crashes whenever I try to submit a report. Still, the app is very useful. I cross the Tecate, US/MX border several times a week, and it's nice to be able to see how long of a line awaits me. Now, if we can only get the US Border Patrol/Customs to keep the hourly updates submitted. I'm writing this at 10:50am and the last update was at 7am.
Garbage info and won't allow you to submit reports This app is a waste of time. The wait times are not based on any verifiable info because the app itself prevents users from submitting wait times that vary from what it thinks the wait time should be. I just crossed the border which took an hour when the app said 20 minutes. When I tried to submit a report, it failed because it was too different from what it's predicted wait time was.
- Fixed iReport crash message
- Other bug fixes to provide more stability
The CBP Border Wait Times app provides wait times/lane status for US entry ports
