Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “It's great when it's working. But half the time my payments for topping up data or paying my bill won't go through. So when that happens I have to try closing and reopening the app or I'll have to turn off my phone and turn it back on, THEN reopen the app AGAIN and try to make the payment go through. It's especially extremely obnoxious and infuriating when I'm trying to top up my data and the payment doesn't go through and then it freezes my phone service until the payment finally goes through.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Every time I pay my bill, I have trouble with my data. It's almost as if I have no data at all! I paid my bill early on the 21st, which is due on the 23rd of every month. My 8 yr old watched maybe four, 3-5 minute videos today and even then, videos kept stopping. Now, I can barely see any videos because it freezes completely! Past few months, I've been havinv this problem!” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's really helpful when you have tight schedule and need everything calculated to the second. Everything works perfectly fine except the "Your current location" button. I wish the app was refreshing on it's own after asking me to turn on my phone location. Now it takes couple tries to detect that I have already turned it on, but I believe the developers will figure out how to fix this too. Again: great app!! Thanks guys! I appreciate your work!” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “great application I use it all the time but it is very frustrating when I can't get main features to work. For example, I cannot get the calendar feature to work. And I can't get d Direction arrows to work to show which way a line is moving. I am disabled and I've been stuck in certain spots of the city and disoriented and the arrow feature would be nice to know how to use. when contacting support it was very frustrating because they just did not answer my question directly. it seems that a lot” – 2/5 in Play Store

Just put in where you want to go & either "now" or a set arrival or departure time & it gives tons of options with their corresponding times & costs. You can search ahead and save trips to use when you are offline. You can save locations which you use/need often. It has an alert to let you know when your stop is approaching. Sometimes following the walking while on the move is a bit confusing.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “they only cover a limited amount of cities but they are great when they do cover them. it is much better than Google maps and I highly recommend for travel or if you even live in the city use this instead. note that the locations are very complete because it will match locations by name with Google maps so you won't be missing anything!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Lindsey Jacobo: “The app is good... But it would be nice if our rankings actually incentivised a reason to take the bus all the time. Like make a point system that partners with casinos or hotels along certain routes and allow us to obtain points for a comped night stay or dining voucher. Not only would it provide more frequent use of the bus system it may also help pay for repairs on the busses that desperately need it. It would also be nice to increase the gps accuracy on the app.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Desy Barnes: “It was a great app until recently. Now when I click on my route to or from school it shows a significant waiting time between busses even though there's usually only a 5 minute and even then I don't need to transfer as the one route continues as the next one that I need. Please fix. I rely heavily on this app as it was more accurate than Google maps” – 3/5 in Play Store

SS: “The offline metro map is not available that makes the planning of a trip very difficult. We are always not sure of which station we would want to board and deboard. The metro map makes it convenient. Also not having an offline facility will make it difficult for users in times of emergency. Please make the app simple to use for the common citizen. The app had been good for years but recent changes and updates are only making it difficult for the user. We need a simple and informative app.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Ansh Bazaad: “It was very good before this update. Many good features removed. And most importantly it is not doing its main work ie to show route between stations. Whenever i fill the stations, date and time and click ok the app freezes and closes. Fix this asap...” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Hey devs! Great game, really enjoyable and high replayability. I hope you can add a more advanced mode where you can see how many stations and trains each line have or maybe a statistics window to see average time of a line completing a round... im sure not everyone will want it which is why i suggested doing it in a different mode to normal! Hope itll get into the game. Rock on!” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I love games like this: simple concept, minimalist design, well executed. There's a short learning curve to get the basic elements of the gameplay but later levels require more strategy. The controls can be a little tough to navigate like sometimes I erase the wrong track to a station or grab the wrong train. I hope the developer keeps adding new levels and elements to the game.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “EDIT: Developer seems to have fixed the problem with the ads. Thank you. With this fix, the app is 100% worth paying for and 5 stars. I use it 2-4 times per day and it is incredibly reliable. ORIGINAL: App is very good but I paid for the upgrade to no ads 7 months ago and all of a sudden last week huge ugly ads started showing up. I think the upgrade is very worth it UNLESS THE ADS COME BACK FOR NO REASON. VERY DISAPPOINTED.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Nate McIntyre: “As others have said, the recent update with incredibly invasive ads makes the app borderline unusable. In a hurry and need to decide which Metro line or bus stop to head to? We'd love to help you, but here's an ad for Headspace that completely blocks the information on every screen and plays a recording to calm you down first. Good luck out there!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “the app is good only if you have network connection. otherwise you won't be able to open it. This is frustrating because when you are under the tunnel and the DART personnel wants to see your ticket, it doesn't open!! It leads to awkward moments. Why don't you keep the View Ticket section available for offline showing and sync it occasionally instead of tying it to the whole app?” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “I would rate it higher since it does technically serve it's purpose, but it's so glitchy it's almost like a college student wrote the program: 1.) The walking instructions sometimes say to walk for an hour and a half even when the busses are running 2.) The walking instructions think we are flying cause it literally just draws a straight line to where you're going (through buildings and lakes) 3.) You can't set the departure time to a previous time or date.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “considering it's having to do with Miami and public transit, its no wonder this app is as crappy as it is, but the worst part is that this app is kinda vital. If you're not from Miami, you gotta understand how innefficient and confusing it is to navigate such a sprawling city. It's pretty clear that not one of the city comissioners, the mayor, nor anyone in the Transit Authority even uses public transport. The schedule is totally unreliable, the routes barely make sense. Good luck staying dry.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The new update is visually appealing, but that's about it. Everytime I want to load a page there's a loading animation and it takes forever. Old app was much faster to check arrival times. I often use this app to quickly check if I can make it for the next bus because I'm always on the run. Now I have to wait for it to load and it's a very frustrating experience.” – 2/5 in Play Store

John Haller: “I don't live in the area, and installed for an upcoming trip. When searching for how to go places, the text box overlays the status bar, and the status bar expands over the app when trying to select the text box. The search function does not seem to be able to find addresses not associated with a bus stop or station. Google maps works better if the timetables are correct.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Daniel Bredy: “This app worked fine until I got a new phone. Now the card I linked for using the tap feature won't work because apparently you can only use the device it was originally. You'd think the geniuses who wrote this app would anticipate people getting new phones. For that reason I can't give it a very high rating as changing phones is a common enough event that you shouldn't have to discover your app no longer works at the point of payment.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Isaac Jensen: “What's going to happen to ridekick? The app is great for first time transit rider, but for experienced riders, it's missing a lot. In the routes section, it will only show routes when you enter it, not all of it. And doesn't ridekick do a LOT of this stuff already? You even advertised it on your light rail cars. Also, add paying for a fare in the app as an option.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Don Gray: “Very difficult to find what you want. App need major rework. Most info can be found after learning what leads to what. But can't tell directions at most stops and therefore get wrong info frequently. Also if a bus is more than about 5 minutes late the app just quits tracking it and tells you about the next bus instead. Can't easily get route info as it's frequently wrong. Seems to be worse when April and October changes hit. Routes have been changed to where I can't get close to work.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Just started using this app today, so far it's close to the "Dream WMATA+VICINITY" app I've designed in my head for years. Often my commute involves stringing together Routes between 3 - 4 different Transit companies. Usually the ART, DASH, FAIRFAX & WMATA. I need 5-6 Tabs open in 2 different Browsers. I'm constantly manually refreshing! It's madness!!! This application appears to do what I've suggested for years-connecting existing DBs, have an interface that displays & updates selected sources” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Somewhat useful (but so are printed and pdf schedules). Standing now at Stop 1001408 and the app has twice counted down time to arrival of D6, all the way down to "arriving," only to disappear with no bus in site. I understand that busses can run late, but the app is presenting those radiating lines indicating that it is reporting real time tracking. The app obviously is lying!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Joshua Arnold: “Just used it for the 1st time. Was really handy for a short trip. I'll be using this frequently. 1 issue. The pickup/dropoff is confusing. I thought it was telling me to walk to the corner. I missed my ride, and nearly the 2nd. Then, it seemed like a random dropoff spot. Not exactly what i had selected, but very close.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Marlyne J. Johnson: “Cool app. Very detailed on giving real time information for the metrobus and metrorail arrivals and departures. My only problem is that I'm not able to complete a purchase to adding funds into my account in the app.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Brent: “It's just maps and advertisements. Metro rail map is outdated (missing Potomac Yard stop)” – 2/5 in Play Store

Kristen Roth: “I wish it had an updated WMATA metro map. It doesn't include the silver line extension nor the updated station names. The silver line extension has been open for over a year!!! It's pretty good otherwise.” – 3/5 in Play Store
