  • No love

    By hastobeabetterapp
    It’s as inconsistent at DC’s metro system and the trip planner is a joke
  • App is incredible!

    By Gig4951
    I use it everyday. I couldn’t commute to work without it.
  • Alerts

    By TX Sal
    Wish there were actual notifications instead of just an alerts section
  • Ad-Free Version Please!

    By Tamzarian
    Please let me kill the ads. I hate them. Just give us an paid version, PLEASE! So tired of Trump’s fugly face on the ads.
  • Shady Grove

    By PSUdia
    It never shows you the status at Shady Grove. When is a training coming or going? Also the directions changed from the old version to the new. It no longer tells you in what direction to catch metro. The gps location is also gone. So I just use google maps to get to places. If it says 2 minutes or any # of minutes until the next train. Don’t believe it because it is not in sync. It’s actually a minute earlier.
  • Won’t stop crashing

    By VonKuzniczci
    I don’t know anything about this app because every time I open it the app crashes after a few seconds.
  • Had to reinstall after 10/2017 update

    By Thomas8675309
    Great app. Lets me know whether to rush to the station because the train will be arriving soon or whether I can take my time. It was crashing after the 10/17 update. However deleting the app and reinstalling it fixed the problem.
  • Prefer previous version

    By Ahnomaly
    This app used to tell me the closest metro by entering an address, now I can't find the feature. It's good to know the metro time tables but without real time updates on actual metro times & site information this app got a lot less useful it seems.
  • Broken hearts

    By hammerman58
    In reviewing this app it is important to separate its performance from that of the D.C. Metro system. That app is good, but it also makes it clear that Metro provides poor service at every opportunity. Be prepared for heartache.
