    Doesnt work! All busses report "na"

    I used this for two or three years and its been a great app, but as of March 20, 2015, it no longer works. All busses report "na" as the next arrival. Hope this gets fixed.

    Stopped working on most buses from oak grove.

    Falls short in many respects, also is only valuable for busses and there are other better apps available.

    Great feature - looks for all stops close to you :)

    Super helpful when it works -- crashes sometimes -- and it's all greyscale. I wish it had this cool orange colour to it! We need more coloured app tiles, if you ask me; it's a shame that so many developers choose to go with the user-defined theme/colour instead of their own.

    Great app, works well, please just make the live tiles higher res- a bit of an eyesore. Thanks!

    Good app, clean interface, the map is very helpful to avoid typing in the stop everytime.

    Generally pretty good, with a couple of major flaws: Pros: * Nice UI * Support for MIT busses in addition to MBTA (including the silver line) * Shows time to arrival for several busses and stops at a glance Cons: * Does not properly support busses that have alternate night/weekend routes (this is why I took two stars off). These busses will simply report no arrival time * No obvious way to load custom screens directly (it will always attempt to find your location upon opening) * No way to contact the developers at all If the developers fix the bus issue, I'd change this review to a 5 in a heartbeat. As it is, I have to use two different MBTA apps.
