Decent in theory but it needs work. There are many frustrating aspects of this app; for one example there's a card in my account from another phone. I want to remove it, but it can only be removed from the phone it was added on, aka the phone I no longer have. I keep having to swipe past a card I can no longer use or add funds to. Some little things like that. I'd love to see this improved upon, hopefully the app isn't dead.

Absolute trash. Not ready for complete use yet. Like all the other reviews say, it barely works most of the time and I'm on a high end galaxy phone. Aside from the tap pay simply refusing to work often on buses, the metro day/week passes and stored value may or may not take too long to appear. But even ignoring this, the app barely functions anyway, which is super disappointing. You can manage your balance for your physical tap card and add pass/fare to it, but that's about it. Please improve!

Would be really helpful if it were more reliable. Recently the app keeps hijacking my phone and opens randomly while vibrating my phone (when I haven't used it in days or weeks). I also still have a pending $ reload from a couple months ago that I don't know how to get out of limbo. Reload transactions need to be processed more quickly in general. Edit: Whoa, the review a few down nailed the issue! The issue is triggered when the phone is near my CC in my purse! Ugh!
