The app is pretty accurate with timing. However, sometimes the times displayed glitch and show the opposite direction. For example, the New Hyde Park station going to Penn Station sometimes shows the time for Penn Station to New Hyde Park. It's easily fixed by refreshing, but sometimes it doesn't and I need to restart the app. Otherwise, a good app.

Whoa! A new design! It's definitely more modern looking and easier to navigate. Hopefully I'll have more feedback when I'm taking the train again. Minor feedback from last version and hopefully doesn't happen with the new one. I always had to set my favorite stations every time the app updated. Quite annoying when I have 6 favorite stations.

Used it for the first time this morning and it was very accurate and helpful, especially when you're trying to be around as least people as possible! Its time update was correct, # of people in the car I got in looked right and I love that they show which cars make it to the station platforms. Finally, the 'show current location' feature is great as it shows where your standing on the platform in relation to where the cars will stop so you know where you must be for the car you want to get in.
