Description

NOTE: (12/20/2010)

The transit database has been updated. Go to Setting/Sync Database to get the new database. After the db is downloaded, make sure to exist the app and restart it to pick up the new database.

The only transit app that combines offline schedules, system maps, multiple transportation types (train or bus) or agencies for single metro areas, alarms to wake you up when arrival, and integration with Yelp and Google Map.

This application covers the Metro Transit bus and rail in in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area.

FEATURES

- Top five nearest stations using GPS with walking and driving directions from your current location

- Add any station and route into your Favorites that you can access at anytime

- Sync the schedule database with one click to keep it up-to-date with the latest schedule published by the transit authority

Useless

:
What a waste of $3.

Having just moved to the city, I had hoped the app would help me find my way around. Unfortunately, all the app does is list intersections where stations and bus stops can be found. That's not helpful if you aren't familiar with the city and don't know where those intersections are.

If you want a route, you first have to input which bus/train line you'll be taking. That's not something a tourist would know. How would a non-local know ahead of time if he/she was taking #10 or #982? If you manage to figure that out, you have to input what intersections you'll be getting on and off the bus at. If I already knew where I was getting off the bus/train, what would I need the map for?

While the app allows you to save "favorite" bus/train stops, it does not allow you to directly link to them. So if you're trying to route to one of your favorite stops, you still have to browse through the incredibly long, all-inclusive list of bus/train stops across the city, rather than a short list of favorites.

Finally, the app does not allow any kind of input outside of the bus stops in its database. You cannot look up an address and expect the app to create a route there. As mentioned previously, you already have to be familiar with the transit stop that is closest to your destination.

My advice: stick with Google Maps and the local transit website. I found them to be more helpful than this app.
