Updated schedule and fares. Minor fixes for iOS 9 compatibility.
Ratings and Reviews
I would give it a -1 if I could
This app crashes constantly at startup. The last update show 3 years ago, so it doesn’t look like it is being maintained. Apple should pull this from the app store. It is wasting disk space to store it there and trying to run it is a waste of memory and the end users time.
Either fix the app or pull it from the store.
Useful App when it's working
This app is very useful for the VRE commuter. The problem is it is very unstable and crashes constantly, whether it's refreshing to update the times or changing screens.
Also, doesn't exactly work as advertised. App will not locate the nearest station. It's also not realtime. It will not update for train delays and such. But it will take you directly to the VRE status webpage.
Finally, since it's written by a third party software designer, don't expect immediate, if any customer service. Users have been pleading for a new update for over six months to no avail.
Definelty deserve 5 stars
It deserve 5 stars because of the convenience for schedules. However, after certain update it crash every time you open it or you try to set up schedule. Also, it would be great if from the line view instead of hiding past trains, just simply change color (e.g. graded out). Sometimes you just simply want to check the entire schedule, but the schedule tab is not that friendly to use, while the main View provides for better.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
