Could and Should be Great
I paid for the ad-free version of this app because it was solid in design and usefulness and I used it twice daily at least.
Then the developers added a silly shake-for-playlist feature which cannot be disabled. Believe me, if you’re running for a bus and need to check the app quickly only to find the Playlist screen has appeared yet again (and is really fiddly to dismiss) because you have been running or handling your phone in a hurry, it’s beyond infuriating.
Who uses a bus times app to listen to music anyway? The iPhone’s own Music app is far better. At the very least users should be given the option to disable it then all would be great again. Until then, I’d suggest going with TFL’s own Bus Times app instead.
Update: Thank you for your patience, the issue with the Playlists screen has now been fixed. Please update to the latest version of Bus Times London for the fix to be implemented. If you have any further problems please let us know.
Thanks for your feedback, we are looking into the Playlists screen so that it doesn't cause frustration for our loyal users. Please bear with us whilst we do this. Many thanks!
Rubbish app don’t buy!
The developers description sounded so good but experience of use leaves me wishing I could demand a full refund. 1) At the point of declining ad free you are confronted with a notice suggesting that you will not have access to a fully functional app i.e. missing out on hundreds of pieces of functional data. 2) When first searching for bus route E11 that has been an established route in Ealing since the 1960s, it came up with a route in Leytonstone labeled E11. 3) The next attempt this time came up with a list that included the correctly located E11, but the route neglected to show many well known stops in the Hanwell area. I was trying to help an elderly relative who lives in a street where he and I know the bus runs so that he could get to a local optician on the same route. Not worth the money, absolute useless rubbish!
