Please add other crossings throughout Old Metairie


I live right over the tracks off Hollywood and figured there had to be an app that would enable an easier detour.

However when I looked at the iOS store no luck

Bravo..I hope you guys blow this thing up and continue to add more locations and app functionality. I’d like to add this to a notification feature where I’d just get a pop up if a train is passing. It would save tons of time and stress for so many people.

4 stars for no but if it works well I’ll change to 5 stars later

Developer Response ,

Dear Vista1679, we appreciate the favorable review. There is a way to turn on/off notifications if you press the notification bell icon on the bottom left. If there is a cross through it, notifications are turned off, so press it to turn it back on. If you still aren't getting notifications, they may be disabled in your notification settings for the app. We hope this helps!

Feature Request

Can you please add the ability to zoom out on the map to see where the approaching trains are? It would be more helpful to know a train is coming in 10 min versus 1 min to better plan commutes. Thanks! Great job!

Developer Response ,

Dear MKP- – , thank you so much for your review. We are simply making some educated guesses about where the train is, but we do not know for certain. The app should be giving you estimated times of around 2-8 minutes, depending on the speed of the train. However, there is only so much time we can get, based on splits, railyards, and train speeds. Thank you for the 5 Star review, we are glad you are enjoying the app, minus the shortcomings.

Could be better

This only shows Metarie road crossing but I need to know where the train is from labarre as well. You can’t move the map to show where the train is either so your stuck at one location where it crosses.

Developer Response ,

PoppySeed16, thank you for taking the time give us feedback. We are hoping to expand, but Metairie Rd was intentionally chosen as the first crossing based on discussions with the Parish. A single location was chosen to see how well the app would perform, and we will share your concerns with the Parish. The map is immovable because there is nothing else to see other than this crossing. Based on this, would you consider reevaluating your rating? Thank you, and safe travels!
