Works great, and the timetables are accurate. Five stars. Galaxy S Fascinate.
Nice App, well thought out.
Had a problem when I first started using it, but the developer responded quickly and fixed it!
Nice! Rail map next?
I would like this program to tell me how it will be updated, or when the next change in schedule is expected. Simple and excellent program for my G2
Wanted to like this BUT... It has lots of good features but why-oh-why has the developer decided to described what the Metra refers to as "INBOUND" trains (trains IN to Chicago) as "OUT" -- and vice versa?
I've checked out a few other Metra apps and now I've stopped looking, this one has it all and it the interface is very slick.
Great!!!just what im been waiting for...
