‘L’ert sends a sound and/or vibration notification when you are within close proximity to your preselected Chicago CTA Station.
‘L’ert was born from the needs of heavy eyelids, frantic tourists, ferocious readers, Podcast gurus, intergalactic space cadets, and music aficionados. The application enables you to remain engrossed in your work or entertainment without missing a beat.
When you board the train, simply select your destination, activate an ‘L’ert, and enjoy the ride.
This app does exactly what I've needed for years! As a marathon CTA rider who lives in Lakeview, goes to school at UIC, juggles two jobs downtown and and internship in Wicker Park, I'm always in transit so I try to get as much work done as I can on the train. L'ert gives me one less thing to worry about so I can own my time.
Also, a great app for visiting tourists trying to navigate the city. The vibrating notifications are ideal the visually impaired as well.
Without "L"ert, I would have missed my first job interview. Emerged in a deep slumber, my phone vibrated which woke me up and allowed me to exit the train and be at my interview with time to spare. Groovy.
