Metro's own NextBus actually works pretty well (better than the phone with its poor voice recognition and do-loops), although it's not an "app". I use another GPS-based site for a shuttle service I use at work and it functions a lot less well--the pm rush hour tends to create problems for their estimation algorithms (I've learned that arrival intervals will drop sharply as the shuttle comes closer) and shuttles tend to briefly disappear in the am. I'd imagine most of these systems are a long way from perfection.
