    just left a review on itunes:

    "Now i can know the trains schedule without going into the train stations. This allows me to plan ahead of time, doing the things I need to do before I take a train. Fantastic!!"

    iTransitBuddy

    I got a lot of great feedback via email, anything in the forum?

    Any daily commuters out there? If your transit agency isn't listed, email me and I'll try to add to iTransitBuddy!

    I just sent you an email. Looking forward to test it with my commute via Bart Train. I'm tired of getting online just to check what time my train arrives. This app looks like it's very convenient. Thank you!

    Any chance of adding European cities to it? Or releasing a European version? I'd love to have something like this for the London Underground.

    I purchased this app when it first came out. On its apps page it says MBTA is supported, which is the subway/commuter rail here in Boston. The problem is this app does not show subway times!! only commuter rail. Its totally USELESS for me so I requested my money back but never got a response. Be careful about buying this app because there's no way to know what trains it supports!!

    MBTA Rail

    Peter,

    I did reply to your email. It says clearly in the description that MBTA RAIL is what is included and does not say "Subway"...also if you read the reviews other people have mentioned that MBTA Subway is not included.

    As far as MBTA Subway, I do plan on adding it to iTransitBuddy as well as any other transit agencies that people recommend.

    Quite literally MBTA subway schedules are basically listed as "every 10 minutes" during certain time periods.

    Personally, riding NYC Subways for over 10 years I don't see subway schedules being valuable, but who am I to say?, but I will listen to the customers!

    The intention of the App is to help those commuters who ride trains with set schedules with knowing when the next train is quick when the time between trains could be over an hour...when the subway comes every 10 minutes kind of defeats the original purpose.

    Also, if you read the reviews on the App Store you will find out that support is overwhelmingly receptive and quick to reply as well as wanting to develop this App further.
