  • what happened?!

    this app used to be worth the money, but now it’s trash. the delay notifications arrive late, and i no longer receive push notifications (only badge app icons!) or alerts. so many formatting issues with the interface as well. i’ve sent countless customer service emails, to no avail. what’s the point? i believe that if you pay for an app, you deserve to regular updates and timely troubleshooting. i’m so disappointed.
  • Never accurate

    Save your money. The app never tells the right time of arrival. NEVER
  • The best NYC MTA map app.

    I have tried a few apps, both free and pay, this is the best so far. Good clean design, the street view is surprisingly my favorite. The only issue I have is that the street view does not the line connecting the second avenue line. It does show the stations, just the yellow line connecting them is missing.
  • Functional, but needs UI attention

    Not great for one-handed use but still my goto app. For years I've wished when you pressed the 'locate' icon it didn't zoom in to a uselessly extreme close up requiring you to use your other hand to zoom back out, so I also question how ongoing development is.
  • Not reliable

    Seems to be out of date, the app is not reliable.
  • Not updating

    Since the newest version of this app back in Jan 2017, dozens of subway stations have added subway time. This app, which is a little expensive, has decided to not include them. Are they not updating these changes because the app is in legacy mode? Or are they too lazy to add the new changes until the MTA finishes by the end of 2017? Either way it’s unacceptable for a paid app.
  • Lifesaver app, with a suggestion.

    UPDATE: seems that support for this app is waning. New lines do not appear on Street map, New live arrivals for alphabet lines are not supported. Still a good app but aging and developer seems to not be interested in keeping on the cutting edge. Works without a data connection, critical for the subway. Would REALLY like updates that indicate which stations now have cellular service. Also it's a little difficult to tell what trains turn local late night, which would be particularly useful. Also the update may have removed the neighborhood labels you used to see at certain zoom levels could those come back?
  • Spotty Support and Updates

    It's the bane of the classic app. The developer hits after release, but a couple years and mucho dinero later, the developer gets bored and ceases to pay attention to the app. Apple releases an iOS update, the app breaks, and maybe three months later the developer decides to update the app over binge-watching something on Netflix. As it stands now, iTrans NYC Subway’s developer has no interest in fixing this apps notifications, which WAS the only thing to set it apart and make it useful.

    The app has failed to update it’s “Live Arrivals” feed for the many new routes (C-E-F-G-M-R) for which data is available.
  • From good app to mediocre 👎🏼

    This app was amazing when navigating the chaos that's the MTA but since 2017 the times for most train arrivals is inaccurate and they keep incidents with any lines open even when the issue with that line has been addressed
