Really good app, but uses data when not being used

Really well done app. Well polished. But it uses data even when I'm not using the app. So I'm uninstalling since I'm not using the MBTA these days.

Updating review. Significantly improved tracking - has been quite accurate. No more crashes on WP 8.1. Performance has improved with the minor updates but lack of change log is a negative considering how easy Microsoft has made it to provide one. Overall, an excellent app for tracking the constantly delayed MBTA services.

Time if Off

It would be a good app. The problem is I have an app for buses on my android device and the arrival time is accurate almost to the second. Buston is always 2 minutes behind. Cannot depend on it.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. v2.1 should have improved accuracy so please try it again.

Not a bad app, but I really don't like how it doesn't tell you the destination of the bus route, just says "inbound" or "outbound." Some buses lines have alternating routes, for example: the 89 outbound goes from Sullivan to Davis but every other bus diverges a half mile before Davis and goes on to Clarendon Hill. Simply knowing it's an outbound bus doesn't help if you need to go anywhere past where it splits. Also, if you were new to an area or just riding an unfamiliar route it might not be clear which direction is inbound or outbound.

Great app, looking forward to more features

The best app I've found for MBTA tracking so far. Pros: -Great Design, very clean, looks like a UWA, hamburger button is on the bottom (THANK YOU!) -Allows you to favorite bus stops, rather than individual lines, so you can easily track all buses at a single stop. -Find stations through map view and tap for details. Really slick, works better than others I've used. -Includes Hubway stations, if that's important to you Cons: -No manual refresh to make sure you're getting the most current time estimates -GPS location isn't cached, so if you leave the Map view and return to it you have to wait for it to find your location again So far so good. I really hope development continues on this app!

Hi, thanks for the feedback. The stop times are auto-refreshed as frequently as the MBTA provides so the manual refresh wouldn't make a difference. v2.1 should have improved accuracy so please make sure to update. The location caching is something in the pipeline.
