Instantly view travel time (by car, transit* and/or walking) to your favourite places. Share your arrival time securely to friends and family. In a tap get driving directions in your favourite maps app.

As seen on TechCrunch, MacStories, iMore and AppAdvice!


ETA is your personal assistant providing you with quick access to travel times, transit and driving directions to all your favourite destinations.

Driving times to your locations are conveniently presented on a single screen with an indication of current traffic alongside. In a tap you're delivered pre-routed, turn-by-turn driving directions in your favourite navigation app.

Travelling by transit? No problems, ETA has you covered. In addition to driving and walking, ETA offers travel time travelling by public transportation (check to see if this feature is available in your area).

ETA is simple to use and provides you with the information you need to navigate your city. It's also a great companion to the navigation apps you've come to love (including Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, Transit and CityMapper).

ETA is available as an iPhone app, a widget in Today View and on your Apple Watch.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Our Apple Watch app allows you to start cycling and walking workouts to your locations. ETA for Apple Watch works with Apple Health to sync workouts and activity data.

Overall good but some slight tweaks needed

Long time user of this app and I think it’s wonderful overall and definitely worth the download.

However I have some small suggestions over what could be improved. Apple Watch complications are still very buggy and don’t update often, only when I tap the complication is there an ETA update. Also would it be possible to have a widget like commute but instead have origin set as current location ? I feel like that would be more valuable because I’m always curious on how far away is home when I’m driving and running errands.

Developer Response ,

Hi Jonas, thanks so much for your feedback. We've got an update coming soon to improve the Apple Watch complication so look out for that. With the widgets, this is very much a first cut and expect improvements and added features over the next few releases. We are working within the confines of what is allowed on the home screen. ie. not a very frequent update schedule. The fixed origin ensure correct data a lot more often that a varying 'current location' origin. That said we understand a lot of users want a current location origin and we are trying ways on creating a worthwhile widget experience.

Not yet ready

I haven't heard back from you, I love the idea of this app but its still incomplete. Here is what will usually happen, i will want to get in my car, plug my iphone in so that it will connect to carplay, during that split second that its connecting, i want to look at the widgets and see how long its gonna take me to get to work, home, etc. It tells me the minutes on that location, but not the route. So i have no idea which freeway this app is using to tell me its gonna take 25 minutes to get to wherever. What if i get excited that its only gonna be 14 minutes to get home and im gonna assume that its referring to the 210 freeway (my usual route) when in fact theres an accident and instead it was 14 minutes using the 15 freeway. Oops! This is why i deleted this app 2 years ago because i didnt feel confident using it without that extra bit of info on the today view. I dont want to tap on the preset location, unlock my phone, and look at the map when it could just say "14 minutes via 15 freeway". Please address this, i cannot use this app otherwise

Hi Jae, Sorry for the delay in responding to your support ticket, you should have email now. Appreciate the feedback and we're working on allowing more info, including routes, in the widget.

🙊 High hopes for complication but simply doesn’t deliver

I bought this for the sole purpose of having an accurate ETA to work displayed in real time as a complication on my Apple Watch. I installed it and gave the app all the proper permissions (including making sure the iPhone app is set to “always” with location). When you open the iPhone app, it auto updates and accurate info is displayed. But the app, iPhone widget and watch complication simply do not update with any noticeable regularity. The complication, in particular, usually shows highly inaccurate stats (showing heavy traffic even though rush had completed 12 hours prior).

I wish this was a rare occurrence, but even after a full week of careful testing, making sure everything is set correctly, it simply doesn’t work as advertised. The developer said this newest version fixed the issue. It didn’t in my case, and there’s nothing special about my setup. I’d recommend you definitely not purchase this app even if the developer updates with “fixes”. I’ll be asking Apple for a refund on this.

Developer Response ,

Hi there, really sorry for your experience with the Apple Watch. May I ask - have you reached out and contacted support? We'd love to know more about your situation to be able to help you either setup ETA correctly, or if an issue with the app get more info so we can fix.
