    Download the Last Stop App from the AppStore.

    Done.  I was able to download it through iTunes on my computer, but it was not in the App Store from my device.  
    What do you think of the user interface?

    First off, I have to say that I LOVE the first thing I see when entering the app; copy pointing me towards what I need to do.  Thank you for not making me search or learn on my own what do once I opened the app.  Already, I am pleased.  It’s simple, I’m not burdened by ads, pointless options, and distracting features.  I like that about this app

    How easy is it to add an alarm?

    Very easy!  As mentioned above, this seems to be straightforward.  I simply hit add, and up pop the four-five basic questions.  At first, I was trying to adjust the proximity on the map, but as soon as I set my location, I quickly realized that I could change the proximity back in the alarm menu.  It would have been nice to have “dragged” the pin point, as opposed to having to enter in a search location.  What if I don’t know the name of where I’m going, but I could drag the red pin to the location I need?  This is one feature I’d like to see added, if possible.  
    How easy was it to set the alarms location?

    As mentioned above, it was easy because I picked a known location.  If I simply wanted to look at a map and pick a spot, it was slightly frustrating, as it wasn’t clear that this was an option.  Otherwise though, very easy.  If I always had an address, I’d say this was great!
    What do you think of the applications performance?

    Good!  I turned it on, I didn’t travel to my location destination, but finding my location, setting the alarm, customizing the alarm and turning it on was very easy.  In fact, I had a friend who could use this app… Just the other day I dropped her off at the train late at night, and she made me call her 45 minutes exactly after I dropped her off, as that’s about the time her train would pull into her stop, and she didn’t want to miss it because she’s sleeping.  This app solves a known problem for many, I’ll be sure to share it with her!
    Do you think the application is priced reasonably?

    Yes.  Of course, you’ll always get more people with a free app, but keeping it under $2.00 is really important.  Unless you add many additional features, I’d keep it at this price point.  While you’re trying to gain market share, you might also consider a promotion for a .99 cents download. 
    Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have.

    I like this app, quite a bit.   It’s simple, clear, and easy to follow.  One thing that struck me is that it’s a little boring visually.  Some may like to add basic features to enhance the look and feel.  While I mentioned above that I like its simplicity, adding in an option to add a background picture, change the font, or, download new alarm ringers, may give the app the level of customization and personalization that many enjoy.  However, don’t lose the basic use – it’s easy, and that’s why I like it.

    Also – I love the alarm sounds – the bicycle bell is so cute and fun!  I’d like to see more options.  It’s the little things J

    Thanks for letting me preview – it was fun!  Good luck!
