Useless app for an unnecessarily convoluted public transportation system. You cant even see the zone 1 and zone 2
Route Map & Platforms
HATE that I was forced to "upgrade" to this untested and BROKEN app.
Have finally figured out how to get some information out of it
Like setting up your favorites at 0200 when there is nobody using the app.
Then when you ned to use these favorites in the mornign just go back and forth three times to get rid of the "no results" error.
But even if this bug gets fixed there are HUGE problems.
1. Best features of the Metlink app was the route maps - the google map type map is NOT a route map !
2. Second best feature was the journey planner provided the PLATFORM connection data.
This is a MUST when wandering through Flinders where the platforms change constantly
But still helpful even when going to small stations you have never been to.
The canned feedback response is also a JOKE.
First they come out and tell us to go back to using the Metlink classic - though because it hadn't been updated has its own problems.
Today they posted that they have put the old WORKING Metlink app back on the store - BUT IT IS NOT HERE !!!
PT Victoria MUST demand their money back from the developers of this crAPP
The app is usable...barely. Basically you have to plan on spending 20-30 minutes getting all of your favorite stations and routes set up, which is a very tedious process. Simple things like the app not finding any trains to "Parliament", because you didn't specify "Parliament Station" are pretty annoying.
Search results seem inconsistent. Several times it returns no results for a favorite route, but if I press back and try it again it will show results the second time around.
Definitely not something you want to rely on when your in a hurry to catch a train. Stick with the old app if you can.
