Its not accurate It used to be last year. I redownloaded the app last night to ride home from work and where it said there were no bikes there were 4 and when I got close to home it said there was 1 dock left but there were 8. It didn't bother me too much last night but let's say I was on my way to work and I went to a station thinking there are bikes when there aren't then I have to go to another station in a different direction I could be late and it will defeat the purpose

NO privacy!!! Read the Terms of Use, people. Anything they can take off your phone, they will, and it is treated as "non-personal". Your name, email, real-time whereabouts... All theirs. I don't think so. Uninstall now...

Great app for NYC Citibike I've been using this app in NYC since Citibike launched. Love it! It's great to see the number of bikes and docks for each station right on the map at the same time. I really love that you can manually refresh it. I wish they used the updated Google maps api and also included NYC bike paths, but other than that, great app!
