Nice, but current version crashes a lot
I like this app. it does a few things that I find rather handy: It allows me to set the max walking distance for trip planning. That's nice because I ride a bike. The max is 2.5 miles. It includes and combines the different Caltrain twitter feeds. It saves my origins and destinations so I don't have look for them each time. In addition to the Caltrain schedule it includes Muni and VTA and Bart as well. Also it has the updated schedule, unlike iCaltrain which still haven't got the new trains that Caltrain added recently (10/25/12). Now for the annoying stuff: I can't change my origin from current location; every time I try the app crashes (10/25/12). The font is very small and you can't make it larger. <rant>For those of us with vision issues this trend in iPhone UI design to make the font and graphics smaller and smaller so you can fit more on the screen is really annoying. Some apps, games in particular, are unusable. Yeah, I know about the system zoom. Have you tried using that?</rant> Gray text on white or gray background. I get it, it looks so pretty(!!), but from a usability standpoint it's exasperating. No landscape mode. I use landscape mode a lot because generally when the iPhone adjusts for landscape the font gets bigger.

Mr commuter
Awesome app! Totally makes easy community. I commute over an hour a day and this app has made that commute less stressful and simpler. Way to go!

Interested and ambitious developer
You can tell by how easy the developer makes it to leave feedback that this app will get better in response to our needs. It's young, but ambitious. Not yet on par with what the iOS 5 Maps app does for transit, but it'll probably outdo it one day. Maybe even soon.

Amazing, simple public transport app
Wow. I'm amazed at how easy it was on this app to find my way from point a to point b with public transportation. It was super easy and super clear. I highly recommend it for anyone with a smartphone who commutes in the Bay Area. You gotta give this a try.

Feeling way more nimble already
This is super handy! I like how there are real time updates on specific trains using Twitter - very creative. When I'm commuting I need to know if I'm going to be late and this makes it much easier to take CalTrain. I'd love to see other public transportation connectivity. There are so many ways to get around town, it's a soup sometimes. Thanks for this app!

Get Nimbler!
I was a Beta user & this app is awesome. I love the way it let's users leave voice feedback that is shared with Caltrain. Thanks for making transit planning much more nimble!
