It’s a scam

The app is a scam and it will get your email before saying your area is “unsupported”. Don’t get robbed!

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear that, but the app currently supports 62 cities as listed in the description. We apologize if your city is not supported yet. We also do not collect your email unless you create an account, which is optional. The app works without creating an account.

No available cities at all

Yes, I know a MVP is a good way to test your app but at least you should put some cities available in app! After I spend 10 minutes download and install the app and have a try, I find no cities available at all! Why do you publish it on the App Store then?

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear you’re having issues. The app is available in 62 North American cities, including all large US cities. You have the complete list in the app’s description.

Don’t see share bike or departure times

There is bikeshare in my city but it didn’t come up as a suggestion. Departure times are also absent. One can’t just subtract desired arrival time used for query and determine when they need to be at a bus stop. Knowing departure and arrival times is crucial

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Departure times will be added in he next update in a few days. In each city, we integrate a number of providers, including some bikeshare companies. If you’d like a specific provider to be added, please reach us out at, or via Twitter @cowlinessapp or Facebook @cowlines. Thank you!
