Old app was much better. I hate the new travel times. Before you could just enter your starting and ending points and given the total travel time. Now I have to add up all the individual times. On busy mornings, I dont have time to do this. I just want the actual time from point a to point b!! Please fix this as the new travel times are useless. Thank you.

The old app that lets you use it was By Far better the new one is unusable because of the Stupid Warning that blocks you and makes you struggle to try to get past it so you can check travel speeds/time.... And other routes ,i can't figure out how to attach a image but I'm pretty sure you know the warning thing that Blocks the map of you get stuck in a back up all of s sudden you can't get to the map to find a way out

It's very glitchy and crashes often. Also the traffic lines show up multiple times and not sure what's going on but I'll be using the standard website for now. I feel like this app is still in beta mode.
