This is a blog where I post responses to select comments posted by users
on the Android Market
for the free version
of the app.
If you've posted
a question, complaint, bug report, feature request, or something along
those lines, see below for my response.
If and when I adequately
address your concern, please consider updating your comment, or just email me
directly with feedback.
I respond to some comments with a wee bit of sarcasm - these are meant to be taken in a light-hearted manner.
Please do not read if you do not have a sense of humor.

Accuracy This app used to be great. Now the arrival times don't mean
much of anything. "5 min" could mean 2 min or 15 min. Maybe it'll get
- No no no, this app didn't "used to be"
great. This app is
so great are the transit systems that actually provide the data you're seeing.
so great is being blamed for this issue when they
provide the data and estimate the bus / train predictions while the app just shows you that data.
so great is a two star review for an issue that I have no control over and already addressed in the FAQs
so great is not getting an email asking about this and allowing me the opportunity to answer your question directly.
What's also not so great is lactose intolerance. Am I right!?My Rating:
Poor Accuracy Indeed This user used to be great. Now his comments don't mean much of anything. "Poor Accuracy" could mean he read the predictions wrong or the data was wrong. Maybe he'll get better again.
Marc (October 23, 2012)Sucks It has no information on pace buses, there are plenty of free apps
that tell you the same information, regardless of the destination it
skipped over the only information I was lacking
On Your Marc - I'm sorry you feel the free version "sucks" because it does not have Pace information.
You will notice that the description of the app explains why this is the case.
If Pace information is that important to you, you have the option of buying the full version of the app that includes this feature.
Of course, I understand that you are entitled to this feature for free, since, you know, you are obviously an awesome individual (I mean, come on, you spell "Mark" with a 'C'!) and things should just happen for you with no effort or expense on your part.
I sincerely apologize that I cannot be as awesome as you are (but really, who can!?) and give you the feature you rightfully deserve for free.
I hope you can find it in your awesome heart to forgive me.My Rating:
Sucks It has no information on why the 1-star rating, there are plenty of comments that are reasonable and give me information, regardless of this rant you skipped over the app description so this "review" is seriously lacking
Amit (September 2, 2012)It was so great! But now... Loved this app, was so worth it, but now in
the designers attempts to get ppl to buy the pay version we run into
problems. Used to list all upcoming busses for me, now I only see one
bus on that route, usually 30 minutes out, not the 5 or 15 out anymore.
Hell, today it wont load anything at all after the last update. It was
fine before, ads weren't a problem. But now it Isn't worth having at all
anymore, a real shame, I loved the way it was and used it daily before.
God Amit - First, please read the FAQs
. If you're having an issue, please email me
. I cannot help you this way!
Second, the issue you're experiencing today is an issue with the Bus Tracker System. It's not my fault!
Third, I really did not understand much of what you're saying about listing all upcoming buses and 30 minutes out or 5 or 15. I'm confused! Please email me for help!My Rating:
It was so great! But now... Loved this user, was so reasonable, but now he attempts to get me to help by posting a comment but that runs into problems.
