I take a bus and 2 trains to get to work. This app makes it possible. I have found it very accurate for both and actually easier to find bus location than the WMATA trip planner. I bought the no ad (reasonable price) because I did find myself hitting the link accidentally when scrolling. A must have app for DC commuters.
The maker of this app shouldn't be blamed for problems with WMATA's feed. So far the app has worked like a charm. I love the design and the responsiveness.
Overall a well laid out app that does what needs to be done. No complaints with the basic functionality, but: can't distinguish between east and westbound buses at same stop in favorites; can't reorder favorites; would be great to have info on lock screen, allowing me to glance at phone. These would all be super useful additions.
It's been a while since there was a major broken link (there are still some but they're not major stops) but overall the *BEST* WMATA app out there. The app is optimized for the iPhone 5's screen so that's a plus and everything works very well. Keep it up!
The recent intermittent outage was caused by Metro shutting down access during times of heavy usage. They were completely unresponsive in addressing the issue on their end. The app has been updated to provide more redundancy during such times. We understand the frustration of those who posted complaints in recent ratings. If you continue to use this app, we are confident you'll have a better experience. Thanks for your support.
Another so called App for metro information is a bust! When I try and get bus info all I get: Could not find the requested stop. $1.99 wasted!
