Missing information

I used the app everyday and this new app have a lot of things that help people but also information. In the old app you could track the bus and know if was delayed and for how minutes, now is not much information about the bus that you are waiting. I hope this could be fix in the future. Knowing if the bus was delayed help a lot specially on tinder times.
I hope things can be fix, I do like the new app.

Developer Response ,

Dear Arends87, thank you for your feedback and appologies for the late reply. We did fix the time table with real time data, but you can not yet see the vehicle moving on the map. It is on our wish list and as soon as the data is good enough we will implement this.

Needs improvement

Glad I bought a paper (72h) ticket given some of the reviews. But just for navigation this app needs a lot of work. The “map” doesn’t even show transit lines. The actual train map is buried. So I can’t see which direction the various (tram) lines are heading and Amsterdam has a very confusing layout. It also doesn’t even show all of the tram stops on the map. Like you can see the Google maps version underlying the interface but there is no “Tram” label to click on to see which trams service that stop. Google maps does a much better job.
