Buggy, crashes constantly
I would love to say this app was helpful and right when I first downloaded it it was, however at some point it started crashing any time I tried to do anything besides look at the home page. Sometimes it’s not even able to make it past the opening animation before it crashes. Before it started constantly crashing, I loved that I could use this on the weekends to find alternate routes where the train was actually running. I also loved that you could easily start from a different location than your current one, and that you could plan your route ahead of time. But it would be nice to see slightly better walking directions between the station or stop and your destination. Also, although the opening animation looks cool, it seems a little long and when the app keeps crashing in the midst of trying to get directions and the animation plays each time you reopen it, it gets a little old. It would be nice to see something really simple, or better yet, to see the home screen right away.
I’m lovin’ it!
Aii anyways, I use this app on the regular to look at the various maps, check the times of the trains, and getting directions to locations. Getting directions isn't the best, but it gets the job done (it could be better as explained in paragraph 2 😁).
One thing i would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to see in this app is an option called “must take” (or something of this nature) that forces the app to have to give you directions with the specific trains you want to take. I’ll provide an example, let’s say you’re at Times Square 42nd street subway station and you wanna go to Roosevelt Ave Jackson Heights subway station 74th street. There are multiple ways to get there. The app allows you to use the 7, E, F, and R trains. That’s perfect!, however, what I really want is to take the R to Queensboro Plaza and then transfer to the 7 train from there. The app doesn’t even suggest this, but there are and will be more reasons one might want to take other trains (the example provided is only 1 out of multiple). Anyways, thanks for you time. 😎
Two steps forward, one step backward
It is great to have to check just one app for all of MTA’s services. However, one of my biggest complaints is that this app is fairly useless for the bus. BusTime has a great interface to see which stops exist on a line and then you can also see other buses which stop there. In this app, the stops don’t even show up at all and it tells me I need to enable location services to see “nearby” stops. I just want to see all the stops like in BusTime! Additionally, the train times for commuter rail like LIRR seem less accurate than the TrainTime app and there is never any track information. Overall, the app has potential, but I would not recommend it in the current state for anything other than subway travel.
