Hate the ads!! 1/5
Great app!!! 5/5
Very easy to use.
NYC Subway App 5/5
Very good tool- the Route Planner is awesome- like the way the circles at change stations undulate to help guide one
Keep it up- good work

Good except at the last/first stop 4/5
By TR Engineer
The app is great and usually very accurate with the train times when I am coming home from work. However, the app seems to have an issue with dictating southbound train times at the final stop (terminal) of the train I take. I take the 5 train from and to Eastchester-Dyre Avenue. Whenever I select this station it only shows northbound trains but never southbound ones. I wouldn't mind if it only showed southbound trains because those are the ones leaving the station. Other than this issue the app has been great and very useful to my daily commute.

Have been using it for a couple of year and it does the job!
Ads interrupt your search 1/5
Sometimes I need information fast on the train, like should I transfer to the car across the platform if it gets to my destination faster. To help determine this, I'll usually take a quick look at a subway map, but this app interrupts your perusing with ads every time, and it makes it difficult to make those quick decisions.
Latest Update :/ 3/5
Your latest update is hanging at the install for two days now...can't delete & re dl because there's no little 'x' when is the icon is held down...can't open from the App Store either. Normally love the app but this update :/ meh not so much...
Unbalanced display of arrivals 1/5
I'm on 174 and Grand Concourse every morning rush hour and this app shows 8-9 trains arriving northbound but only 1 arriving southbound and it's usually wrong. Same thing in the evening except the opposite. Rarely it gets it right. Sub par app. Needs real time improvement.
Interfering ads 1/5
The ads get in the way.
I understand you need ads for a revenue stream, for a free download. But your placement of some of them is in poor taste. You have some full screen ads pop up a few seconds after opening the app, which is right when someone would be touching the screen to move it around. This sends the user to another full page ad, which has a little x that is barely touchable. You already have well placed ads on the bottom. The full page ad gets in the way of the experience. Tremendously.
Good app to tack travel times and map your way around. Just needs to update the service status section more often to keep it current and up-to-date.

very useful 4/5
I couldn't do without this app 5/5
I love it
Loved this app...but the update doesn't open. It freezes ..I hope developers are aware of this and fix it.
Is fine not great 2/5
It helps. It could improve
What did I pay for? 1/5
I purchased the feature that would tell me which part of the platform I should aim for depending on my commute but it never tells me where I should be on the first platform, only the second. Waste of money!
I use this app often to check on the status of trains, which I have found to be accurate. I recommend it.
The ads are very annoying. You can't exit out of them and the audio plays even if your phone is on silent mode. I always have to close out of the app and reopen to avoid the ad. If it at least could not play audio when in silent mode...!
Worst app ever 1/5
Too Complicated, too many pop ups. Shouldn't MTA have a ad free app?
New yorker 3/5
Too many ads 1/5
Every update makes this app have more ads. So annoying I deleted it.
The pop up ads now make this impossible to use - very annoying. And the recent refresh keeps pulling up four pop up "let us show you around" screens every time I open the app. You have to navigate through each one before you can see the map - and it keeps begging you to enable ads. The annoyance to convenience factor is too high and I'm deleting / finding something new. It's a shame, I've been using this app for a couple years.
Great Free App 5/5
Very easy to use! Great App that is free!
An immense amount of pop up ads that is really unnecessary for an app like this.
Great, Easy App 5/5
Great app that's very easy to use.
Missed train again 1/5
The arrival board feature seems to be a bust. I don't know if it's the app or the MTA that cause this to be so but either way, it's if no use when I can't actually rely on it to be correct.
By explain_the apps on point
It works great for me, very easy to navigate.
Terrible APP 1/5
It's inaccurate to say the least. Don't rely on this app it simply doesn't work.
TOO MANY ADS THAT WON'T CLOSE! 2/5
Understandably, free apps come with a LOT of ads but this app has a few that you just cannot close! You can tap that "X" until you punch a hole in your screen but it won't close so you constantly have to close the app and reopen it, hoping that you won't get a non-closing ad. SMH.
Ads make it impossible to use. Do not download.
Pop up ads on transit app? Really? 1/5
By Machine Gun Funk
This app is for people who plan their trips at home. If you're in a tight situation, and need to make quick decisions based off of information in this app, the pop up ads will add to the fun! Really though, don't mind ads at all but pop up ads that take up the whole screen for seconds at a time make this app useless to someone on the go.
Best so far 5/5
I have been using this app since visiting the city since 2010. At long last, I live here now, and I know my way around Manhattan without the app. It's saved me countless times, and I still continue to use it for MTA announcements and service changes. Thanks for a great app. I recommend this to all of my friends visiting the city.
Update: notifications working 5/5
I am pleased to say that my previous issue, delay notifications not working, was resolved after updating to the latest version. Whoops! That's most of what I use it for, so for that, 5 stars.
MTA rider 4/5
Very easy and accurate. Helps me navigate working in NYC for my first time.
Easy to use and accurate. 4/5
NYC lifer - one of the better ways to navigate the system.
New York Subways MTA map and route planner 5/5
I use this app all the time. I even made the purchases.... it's a must have mapapp in your pocket. I love it! Thanks!
Not flexible 1/5
By Weekend in NY
Google maps worked better. The ap does not allow you to get routes to specific locations (i.e. JFK terminal 8). Did not find it useful during our weekend trip in NY. Also don't waste your money paying for the additional features...barely noticed they added any additional value.
Too many pop ups 1/5
Imagine you are on the platform and the train is coming. You quickly open your subway app to see if you are getting on the right train. Then A POP UP AD comes on and won't go away for several seconds! Ridiculous.
The most usefull app... 5/5
Just two things... 3/5
I just downloaded this app and I noticed two things: You have to put the exact subway station you're going to. For example, if I'm provided an address by someone, and I need to figure out which trains to take, I cannot enter an address because I'll have to figure out which train station is nearby so that this app works. Anyone should be able to type an address and this app should say which trains from the station that you're by.
Second: In case you need to transfer, this app does not say which train to take. Example, if you have multiple trains at a station where you're transferring, it just says to "take the 8th Ave train downtown" but does not say which one/s specifically.
I will be starting school in August and I will be using the subway everyday, and those practice runs I've been doing I have used this app and it's great! Has a picture of the subway map and helps me get to point A to point B stress free! Would definitely recommend it!
This gets me where I need to go 5/5
By KC Jayhawk
I'm don't need this app to time the subways, I just need them to get me from point A to point B. This does the job just fine. Have use it for all me trips to NYC.
Serves its purpose 4/5
I use this primarily for service status updates and it doesn't let me down.
0 stars 1/5
This app is trash. Doesn't get any of the "arrival times" correct and the one thing is does show, are delays, and that too, is delayed. Pun intended. Better off with another app.
I love the app 5/5
