Absolutely a must have for ferry commuters

I am so glad I found this app. Everything I need in one place. Not only does it have the ferry schedules in there and up to date without all the confusing seasonal changes and fares that are far complicated to make sense of for folks that do t use the ferries on the regular, but it has alerts, a place to keep your tickets and even better - it shows you how many tickets you have left on a multi use ticket. The other app doesn’t even offer that. You can star your favorite Ferris so it places it on top and it automatically determines which direction you are traveling. The ferry booths should be advertising this app for people not the terrible one that the state has made. I love this app and highly recommend it. Great job to the brilliant person that developed it. You made my commuting SO MUCH EASIER!!

Fabulous, one-tap fast, attractive

This app became and instant daily driver and quickly moved to the front page. Clearly deserving of 5 stars, especially as a free app.

It tells you when ferries are running late! This feature has stopped me from speeding and rushing numerous times.

A manager for my tickets that actually works?? Easily scan in and check the remaining value of your tickets without fear of the app crashing. WSF could be taking notes from these guys.

There are reservations, spot availability indicators, holiday schedules, real time ferry locations , etc. and it knows which side of the water you’re on. I went to Friday Harbor the other day and used the reservation system through FF. It auto filled the whole form! So easy.

The UI is very attractive and thoughtfully designed. You can instantly see which ferry is next, owing to the color changes, very nifty for those last minute ferry dashes we all know about.

Clearly designed by a frequenter of the ferries. Fast and bug free, and the developer responds to reviews! I tell everyone I know about this app. There is no way this is going to stay free.

5 stars for Ferry Friend!

I NEVER write app reviews but felt compelled to for Ferry Friend. This app is a game changer!! While the WSDOT ferry website is full of useful information (schedules, alerts, webcams), it is presented in a disparate, confusing, and outdated manner. This app takes all of the good stuff from it and parcels it in an incredibly easy to use format. Oh and there’s more! The ferry delay tracker and the live map are two features that even WSDOT does not have. I travel quite frequently on the ferry system and I am kicking myself for not having heard of this sooner. To the dev- thank you SO MUCH for all of your hard work on this gem of an app.
