If you live in a bigger city, there is a chance you might be taking local public transit for some things, and there is nothing more frustrating than missing that next bus or train by just a couple of minutes. It can throw off your entire day. With an app like Moovit however, you can always be up on the times of all your local transit, and today Moovit is introducing Moovit: Next Bus And Transit Info version 4.0 with some enhanced features and improved usability to make the user experience even better than it was before. The focus is getting around with little effort and doing things quickly, as Moovit now boasts "going anywhere, anytime in just a few taps."
With this latest update, users get access to new En-Route and personalization controls, which can help to make sure that the app looks and functions just as you need it for your own personal use. The user interface has also been redesigned, with the idea of encouraging users to "share and receive live community reports" which can be extremely useful for staying in the loop on the status of all your transit lines. This is especially useful for those who have a bustling transit system with multiple connected transit types, like Portland, OR's Tri-Met system for instance.
Also new in this latest update, an OmniSearch bar has been incorporated to make searching for the right transit information at the right time as easy as possible with a simple and fast experience. Moovit 4.0 is designed for the "on-the-go" rider who doesn't have time to mess around with clunky controls or confusing UI's. Everything is at your fingertips. Users will also find that Moovit 4.0 now includes real-time notifications, which is invaluable for something like staying up to date with transit times. This is implemented via the En-Route feature and can be accessed with a simple, single tap. There is also offline support now included, because Moovit understands that you won't always have an internet connection. Now, should you lose your data connection at any point, there's no need to worry so long as you planned your trip using Moovit, as the update now lets you access any planned trips thanks to the storing of planned trips for offline use. Also, if you're interested in hearing what other riders and users have to say, the live user reports can keep you apprised of anything happening currently or recently with the lines you ride every day.
