    This used to be the best metro app now you cant click next train for your first destination making it kinda pointless It also cant detect my location The feedback line doesnt work anymore so I cant report these bugs    Too many bugs
    Maybe its Metros API thats buggy but couldnt get arrival and departure information for some stations In addition banner ads on pages sometimes make the app unusable as you cant scroll down to get to the controls       App needs work
    Perfect for the out of towner Map plans primary and alt routes shows fares and arrival times for the next trains                Excellent
    I loved this app and used it everyday but it stopped working a few days ago Wont show the times for any stations    Stopped working
    Add the silver line please       UPDATE
    This app used to be good before the recent update but now I cant even open it without it crashing Please fix it so I can use the app again Will review again once this is fixed    Crashes
    I used this app all the time on my iPhone 4S but since I upgraded to a 6 it is useless to me in that I am unable to hold the screen down to see the next train button to press it at the same time Hope this gets remedied soon       Not compatible with my iPhone 6
    Because those annoying ads block the button       Might as well remove the submit button
    As others have said its a decent app but useless for the next train button at the origin stop Its covered by the fare bar at the top and you cant hit it mid scroll If this gets fixed Ill gladly change the review but for now only one star    first next train
    Can u make it compatible with the iPhone 5 The screen is cut          Good but
    The Reston station times are messing up Needs to fixed                Silver line
    Keeps saying no network but I have 3G service Not understanding I like the app       Like but
    Map and station info needs to updated for new Silver Line The planner says that to get from EFC to Largo I need to take orange then switch to blue at Rosslyn       Needs update for Silver Line
    Weak Add silver line    Add Silver Line
    This app has been helpful to me I recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy DC                Awesome
    Ever since iOS 8 Been using this for years and never had a problem Now it literally never works Please fix its a handy app          Crashes every single time I try to open it
    the ads cover up I liked it when there were no adds but it seems they are unavoidable That does not mean they have to cover up the map and other parts Build it so the ads are built into their own space within the app and dont use space already supposed to be allotted for other things       Nice update but
    Outdated          Please add Silver Line
    The real time bus schedule doesnt work anymore This used to be a great app NOT ANYMORE FIX THIS MESS    NO GOOD
    Please update it to have the silver line stations and map Thanks          Silver Line
    What good is it if it doesnt give real time updates of delays    Useless
    I liked it for a long time but right now it mixed up the colors and the destination Thought I had more time and then I are the train pulling away as I came down the escalatorUnacceptable       Liked it but then this happened
    Jan 2014 update didnt install properly Left a generic icon that says waiting underneath Cant launch cant remove    Bad update
    Good functionality but the app displays advertisements and the advertisements cover important controls My guess is that nobody really tested this program       Ads get in the way of controls
    Overall this app is pretty good showing the arrival times at the WMATA Metrorail stations However for the past few days its been unable to find my closest station Is it a GPS issue that the app is having Does it need to be updated for iOS 8          Closest station not working
    Fun app fix the tweets thanks                Where are the tweets
    I have been a big fan of this app but the closest station function hasnt been working for over a week Please fix it Otherwise I would give it 5 stars Great app          Closest Station function not working
    This is my most used app for my metro commutes It helps me plan when I should leave my house or leave work It does perform best with a strong cell connection             Great App
    The app works fine except you cannot click on FranconiaSpringfield or Huntington on the station map because the ad covers them up Please fix this          Ads cover map
    Its ok but doesnt show when the next train will leave at end stations ie Vienna Shady Grove Glenmont etc in the station information view This would be helpful          Its ok
    Please fix the next train button Its hidden under top title bar    Next train button not accessible
    This app hasnt been updated in over a year Functions like the twitter feed and news have stopped working It is a shame because it was a decent app but now it is largely useless    Support discontinued
    This has been unresolved for months You cant actually hit the button to see when the next train is coming The button is there but covered by the bar that shows fare info    Cant see next train pointless
    For the past week the wait time for the next time has been off The app time isnt in sync with real times Have missed a few trains because of it          Time is inaccurate
    Wont show my next train Hides the option and Im unable to pull down the screen so I can click Uninstalling does not fix please help    Wont show nxt train
    I wish u could pay a fee even one time to get rid of ads Also needs to be updated to be compatible with iPhone 5 screen size          Okay But
    Ive been using this app for years since I moved to DC and its been amazing but now you cant access the next train options Especially the next train button up top for the first stop Please fix Other than that its a great app          Next train buttons deleted
    Can you update the app please                No silver line
    This app has not been updated with the new Silver Line or the new Silver Line stations       It was a useful app
    Silver Line supportMy Favorites settings were wiped out in the last update Do not accept until this defect is corrected Also the map is incorrectly aligned A giant step backwards    Unacceptable Update
    You cant see when the next train is coming because its covered by the Reset Fare info THIS IS A MAJOR FAIL RENDERING THE APP USELESS    Cant see next train info
    Nice app except its missing the most important thing the time schedule How can you plan a trip if you can only see when the next train is Too bad otherwise good interface    Trip planner with no time table
    This app has been on my iPod and then on my iPhone for as long as I can remember Sure its a bit simplistic but I am well accustomed to searching for the next train It displays upcomig trains just as signs in stations do I give myself an extra minute from what it says and it helps me determine when I should go left or right on the escalators FYI under the trip planner the Fare button will give you the fare time and distance for whatever metro trip youre planning Wish an app this simple existed for metrobus and rideon                Simple and Great for Metro Commutes
    Gives an accurate time for the next arriving train at every station Now you finally will know if rushing down the escalator is worth it                Accurate useful
    Used this app for a year now and just realized that if you click on the nearest Metro you can see the next train arrival times Love this app                Love this app
    App would be great if the submit button werent hidden behind the ads    UI design issues
    Love it Big improvement over previous versions Thanks for keeping it free                A commuter must have app
    I love the app its just it needs to be updated so it can have the silver line Ive seen the actual map on the train and it has it so Im thinking u guys could update it so it will have it                silver line
    I take Metro everyday and used to rely on this apps twitter feed for information on the frequent red line delays However the twitter feed has stopped working and my emails to the apps tech support are going unanswered Ive uninstalled and reinstalled several times to see if that would fix the problem but it hasnt It would be an app worth paying for if it worked properly       Disappointed
