Ratings and Reviews
Works like a charm
Could really only use some minor tweaks but all in all an excellent app! I saw a complaint about the airport directions, but if you look at the map, the AirTrain from JFK connects to Howard Beach (subway only lines) and Jamaica Station (subway and LIRR) and there are tons of signs explaining what to do. LaGuardia is more complicated because of the buses and no direct rail link to the airport, but similarly, there are tons of signs and information kiosks to help - so all you have to do is zoom in to see where the airport bus shuttle connection stations are and get to them. I think that the reason they left out the directions from the connecting Stations to the airports is that you'd need to know which terminal your airline is located in to get specific directions, and that changes quite frequently sometimes. Personally, I don't think it's enough of a reason to give the app a 1-star rating because I've been using KickMap NYC for years now and I've only seen the app get better and more reliable.
Just so simple
This is all you really need. Something that changes with the time of day that you can navigate with just one thumb and make sure you don’t screen yourself up if you’re headed someplace new. I’ve had this app for 10 years and re-download with every new phone.
Some apps try to over complicate things and worry about directions etc. but this isn’t that and I love it.
Sorry it took 10 years to write this.
What they said...
I’m also an iTrans refugee, who came to KickMap when iTrans broke. This could be the PERFECT app with just two fixes: 1. more detail in the alert pop-ups, and, 2. moving the alert listing to its own page, because the current format is too small - the icons for each line are too small and prone to tapping errors, and the window is too small and font too big to allow easy reading of the service advisory information. iTrans did these things right and was five stars - when it worked. KickMap can be 5 stars if it makes these reasonable adjustments.
