Thanks for getting rid of the horrible start page in the new update!
Not as thrilled about the drop of the overflow menu (if you're worried about discoverability, just move the menu button to the left most side).
Also still pushing to bring back 'start trip' functionality, and improve on it by integrating en route directly instead of requiring people to leave their trip to get real time arrival info.
One step at a time I guess, though tbh it's been months.

Good call, I was so psyched about the rollback, I didn't even notice!
Apart from the left-swipe for menu, what do you like better from the pre-4.5 version?
Bus stations, local lines (with realtime) are all available from the main map, and you can search directly there both for lines/locations. For me it saves me a bunch of clicks and unnecessary screens...

Think we'd all benefit from you guys posting a changelog each time u push a new beta update - would let us know what we're testing and allow u to gather more relevant feedback.

Thanks for the quick reply - Sarah!
Not sure how "back-end"y the stability stuff you're working on is, but even that stuff the community would be glad to test and give feedback on. 
E.g if you say that the My Tasks section should load faster, then it lets us know to make a bigger point of telling u guys that since the update its been stuttering and requires several refreshes before the list displays (Not an actual issue, just an example).
It helps us know what to focus on, and gives you more useable/relevant feedback.
Of course not at the expense of development time :-P

Keep up the amazing work! My entire nonprofit thanks you guys.

Hating the new update! Yeah it may be pretty, but so many important features has been mucked up!
1) there is no way to start a trip from the get directions! GET Eta is not a replacement for long trips with multiple rides and some walking.
2) Why, why, why would you divide up multiple maps? Please combine the get directions and near me in one map - like it was before!

Thanks for the feedback. We are going to make some changes based on users feedback, including yours, to the maps screens. Stay tuned.

Another update, another horrible design choice!
Can you guys please stop making it 'more complicated' to get around? There is absolutely no reason I need a start screen asking what I want to do before I can start using your app.
Let me see where I am, choose a trip, search of nearby stops and get to where I'm going - all without things that break my workflow.

To remind you guys, people using your app are mainly trying to go somewhere. Anything that makes them take a break from traveling to try and navigate you app is a deal breaker.
Your old interface wasn't perfect, but it didn't break my concentration.

What you app does now: I need to look at your app, stop figure out where I am stop choose a bus line stop check times stop decide if I'm going to take a line I want or stop ask the app for directions stop wait to get on the bus stop enter ride mode stop get on and off the bus stop get directions and repeat the entire process again.

What it should be: I open the app and see where I am and close stops with their bus times. stop whether I know where I'm going or not, I choose directions, and get the whole path with turn by turn directions telling me where to go, wait for the bus and get on, am told when I get off, am told where to go for my connecting bus, and get to my location.
Yeah, switing automatically to ride mode when the bus starts moving, or even offering me an alternative route if the live gps detects I missed my connection are gravy and added features (they weren't in the old version either), but they're features that don't distract me from traveling!

Everything you've done since version 4 has made people need to spend more time in your app (figuring out if they're going the right way, tapping through screens), and less time getting around!

2 years ago, we advocated your app to every exchange student that came to our school. Now we're searching for alternatives. You shouldn't be proud about being the best of crappy bus apps, you should strive to be a decent bus app overall.

Sadly I've sent a bunch of emails too, and while the responses I've got say they're working to bring back features, each subsequent update just makes the app even more of a pain to use. :/

Great that you're slowly bringing back features that you moved from the new version, but I fail to see how a widget (which is just easier access to information already in the app) takes precedence over actual functionality.
Please bring back the Start Trip option in the trip planner - I know I sound like a broken record, but really, it's the one feature that set u apart from other timetable apps, and without it the app is pointless.
How quickly you've gone from the one indispensable app on my phone to wasted storage space.

And instead of being hopeful for you guys to bring back important features, the new update entirely destroys the previous experience! 3 steps back, none forward.
Cmon guys!

Like today's update - better icons, it's starting to feel more polished.
Still missing the "Start Trip" option which let's you follow yourself across multiple bus lines and dirrctions to the stations. Without it you keep on needing to switch between En Route and Directions
Unsure why you don't just move "Favorites" to the Home tab. Have both favorites and near me collapsed, unless you tap or slide down to open that section.

If you guys are still adding features:
-Have your favorite locations be searchable if you type them into plan trip
-When you bring back "Start trip" pop up alternative routes, useful if your bus gets delayed or miss a connection.

This is very exciting! Asana for web has changed my local nonprofit, and perfecting the mobile app will let us focus less on managing tasks and more on actually getting them done!
