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.

Developer Response

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!

Used to be amazing!

This app used to be amazing but ads (although needed to pay the developers) ruin it! It also makes me reluctant to pay to have ads removed in case the app crashes anyway! The ads are slow to load which often crashes the app, forcing me to close and reload a few times before the app becomes usable! I hope this will get sorted soon as I wouldn't want to use another app as this one used to be great!

Developer Response

Hi, if you are experiencing slow speeds or crashes, regardless of whether they are caused by advertising, please email and we will be happy to help.

My go to app


Literally use this every weekday for my journey to work. Don’t know where I would be without it. Such a reliable app it never fails. Wish there was less ads popping up but I guess everyone need to make money somehow so it’s not a huge bother. Love this app!
