Inaccurate information Consistently displays inaccurate information regarding availability, especially during periods of peak usage.

Fast and simple Love the numbers on the pins themselves. Very easy to read the map.

Annoyingly vague... Mysterious "simple" symbols with numbers on them. Either bikes checked out or bikes available out of a total? Number of stations? Number of available open stations? But no explination which. Knowing what the numbers mean it is probably helpful. 20 minutes of searching with no explination found makes it frustrating to a new user. Lots and lots of spin about how simple and helpful the interface is however.

Excellent app I installed it on granny 's mobile since she had to go station after station in the hood at night and walk back home. She's happy with it and called me a genius!

Very useful! I wish that the app could figure out which bike share/rental service was closest and offer that as a suggestion. This would be very helpful to travelers. Also, displaying a wide area map with the different share services marked on it and a way to click for more info on them would be great.
