Great App

This app was my lifesaver while exploring DC solo. I took the Metro a lot of places because of the ease of it and with this app I knew exactly where I needed to go, where to transfer, and how long it would take me, even if it was across the city. It did require time to already know the Metro stops near my destinations, but those were just a quick google search away. I love this app and will continue to use it if I’m ever in the DC area again!

Too slow to load

I feel like this is an app that doesn’t entirely understand the need it’s supposed to fill. Some apps need to be able to perform a large number of computations at once. It’s understandable that these apps would take a while to load. This app, though, isn’t one of them. Essentially, all it needs to do is display a single image file showing a map. It’s users include people who are in a rush, who just got to the metro station and need to *quickly* figure out where they’re going. Tor them, it needs to load instantaneously. For them, the five to ten seconds this thing takes to load feels like an eternity. It isn’t worth whatever features cause it to take so long to load.

Travel like a local

Absolutely no reason to ask other travelers how to navigate the metro. I’ve memorized the map because of this app.

Fares, run times, and delays would be a really cool way to amp this thing up, though.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review. Fare information and live delays are certainly features we can look at for future versions. We do have train times in the app. If you tap or search for a station, "Train Times" will be at the top of the station's menu. We hope that helps. :)
Thanks again!
