Pros and cons of BVG FahrInfo Plus Berlin app for iPhone and iPad

BVG FahrInfo Plus Berlin app good for

I was living in Berlin for 3 months and used the S and U- bahn daily. Thanks to this app I comfortably and quickly found my way around the city. It very user friendly and I could easily whip out my map whenever I wanted.
I discovered this as a tourist in berlin. Best interface on a transit app Ive seen. I love the grid showing the times and durations of the next several trains.
This is the epitome of app design. Intuitive and easy to use. Well laid out and highly functional. I love that you can plan your trip and then refer to it later without the need for wifi/data. If only all apps were so intelligently designed...
Thank you for this app. I was in serious need of a quick info about the timetables and the routes. Youve made my journeys much much easier!
One of the most used app in my phone since I moved to Berlin. Works perfectly on iPhone 5, nice graphics, perfect accuracy. Great job!
The UI is sometimes not perfect but the app is so valuable to find your way through Berlin with the BVG

Some bad moments

It was very useful,,,, but the newest version made me really disappointed. When I search connections, so often I also want to know earlier or later connections. In previous version, I just had to expand the time line. It was very cool. But with current version, I can know connections only with specified time. I hope it will be fixed in upcoming version....
Thanks for the latest update, now the app doesnt work, but looks very pretty. Well done =/
Hey there, give me back the previous version! 3.0 doesnt show actual departures! Shame on you.
Hard to complain as its free, but this app needs a lot of work. Its a great idea; location dependent or manual schedule search for the Berlin Public Transport. Problem is that its buggy. Manual search does not work correctly, display is off, there are link issues.
It doesnt work at all for mehr! Everytime i choose a departure it shows the right location but then it says that the chosen location doesnt exist! You should test it a little more!
This app is kinda stupid. It crashes when I try to look at the maps and since I have an iPod and not an iPhone, the app really doesnt do me a lot of good. It would be cool if the bus/subway/tram schedules could be downloaded so I can use the app without Internet.
