Pretty good but not great

I’m a Brit living in Finland who visits uk to see family. I use an app called HSL in Helsinki. It’s brilliant allows start and end destinations as addresses or postcodes. Calcs. your route including walking or tram or train. Perfect. And it allows you to buy tickets, please review as a benchmark. This app is ok. But you need to use a different app to pay. You also need knowledge of the stop you need. You cannot even put a postcode of your destination you need google maps to figure that out. So to make a journey I needed 3 apps. Not great. Please take a look at HSL. 😄😄👍🏻

Edit: Much better!!

Metrolink has improved in leaps and bounds these last few years, but the app simply hasn't. Yes, it works for the very basics. However, Google Maps can give Live Times for station arrivals. This app cannot. The only changes this app ever sees, are with the maps. To improve: add push notifications for service changes; location services for relevant information about nearby stops; add live arrival times; add first and last tram times; integrate ticket purchasing into the app. There is so much missing from this app. TfGM need to pull their socks up!

Edit Feb 2018: This app has come on in leaps and bounds since my last review. Live tram info integrated, navigation tools, network status...thank you for this! 🙂 The addition of push notifications would make it a 5-star winner!

Thank you for the re-review. We are always working towards improving the app and are glad that you are finding the updated functionality useful.

Good, but still lacking some details

It would be handy to have the first and last service times on the App rather than having to follow a link and the work your way through the TfGM website.
In this day and age I don’t see why the actual tram positions can’t be shown in real time on the map. I have a tube app which does this.

Thank you for your 4 star review! Thank you also for your suggestions. We are always looking for ways to improve the App and will take these into consideration with future updates.
