Pros and cons of New York Subway app for iPhone and iPad

New York Subway app good for

This app is really good. I just arrived in New York and checked out whats available for the NY subway in order to not carry the printed map all the time. Plus: the printed map shows everyone "Im a tourist" – the app doesnt :) 5 Stars for really good work.
Made my visit so easy! It was very useful and even took into account subway closures. I would be lost w out it
Nyc subway isnt that easy to surf... with this application you spare a lot of map quests. I was really enthusiastic for its locating the nearest station system!
Very helpful for subway info. Other apps will help more with routing you from an address rather than a subway station though. Still, very handy.
Besides a good system map, the routing tool is invaluable for visitors. We used it to go to The Cloisters which took the mystery out of choosing lines & trains.
I think its a great app an is very accurate ..Ive learned how to travel in train with this app

Some bad moments

The application doesnt work, the map cant be displayed correctly, only a few parts of it and a zoom in/out refreshes the map. I deleted this application La carte du métro ne se charge pas correctement, seulement pas parties et un zoom déclenche le rechargement de la carte, ce qui nen finit plus. Jai supprimé cette application
Works extremely slowly on my IPod 2nd, crashes very often (nearly every Minute), no single Cent worth. 0 stars
In app purchases are still in sandbox mode. So thats useless.
This is one of the most unintuitive apps I have ever used. Other than showing you where the stations are, it is useless. The find your route feature is a joke. Can I rate it less than 0?
Bought this app based on the promise that address input works. Im just visiting NYC so just needed an app that can tell me which line(s) to use by entering to and from addresses. It doesnt find most addresses. Waste of $1! Then I found Embark NYC. It does exactly what I wanted and its free...double whammy!
I bought this app as a tourist. Google maps worked great for walking directions to the station and which line to take. Use that instead. This app assumes you know what station you want.
