Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I downloaded this based on the reviews that I read about it. It seems to get really good reviews from people but I don’t know if they’re using it just to look at the map because as a route planner it’s absolutely atrocious. It doesn’t even give you the most basic route between two points nor does it give you an actual accurate route. Basically it’s just a straight line. For example Wapping to East Acton should only take 40 min via Overground, Jubilee and then Central Line. This one tells you to go from Wapping all the way to Shepard’s Bush on the Overground and change there for the central line. But you can’t do that from Wapping. You cannot go straight to Shepherd’s Bush from Wapping because you have to change at the very least once but depending on which train you take twice to get to Shepherd’s Bush. This is the kind of route it gives you. It only gives you a straight line route not an actual one where it has to take into account that particular tube trains final destination. The developers really need to sort this out if they want to make this app a success for the London tube system.
Not sure about this app!
The Status screen looks good, but there is no refresh ability, so you have to look at the last refresh time and if it’s not recent then you have to go out of the Status screen and back in it again.
The Departures screen looks good, but again there is no refresh ability. It doesn’t tell you how recent the data is. Sometimes you get double data with no indication which is the most recent. I was watching the track and the tube train whizzed past when the app said there was 3 minutes to go!
Sorry, I don’t trust it!
Edit: now that version 2.7 has been released I have changed my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars. It’s nice to see that the developers have addressed my criticisms and made the app much better. Well done!
Developer Response ,
Version 2.7 addresses these issues, you can now "pull to refresh" on the Status and Departure screens.
This is my favourite app, places of interest and journey planner very nice, station departure boards sometimes inaccurate, the widget is the best part as you can see the status of all 15 tube lines, an idea for the widget is a tick list feature where you can tick your favourite and most used tube lines that you want to see the status of in the widget, also push notifications with a tick feature to get the status of chosen tube lines, this would make this app the best in town
