    Thanks for releasing this for Android. I’m trying to use it, and I can’t tell if I’m just missing something obvious, or if its a flaw in the app. Basically, I can’t zoom in or out, and only get a single (way too large) view of the map, such that I can only see two or three stations at any time. Hopefully there is a simple way to deal with this, as the app is close to useless when i can’t navigate the map easily.
