Ratings and Reviews

Quite buggy


The concept is good but unfortunately this app seems to be quite buggy. Maps don't pan or scroll and sometimes it crashes

IOS10 incompatible, buggy on IOS9

Paul LDN

This app keeps crashing on my iWatch and iPhone, only one that does so one to avoid until it is stable.

Does not work on IOS10 either.

Useless app.

Great app - fastest and best!


This is unquestionably the best London cycle hire app. Updating is faster, interface is easier to use and more intuitive than the others and the data on docking station status is accurate within a few minutes. In contrast with others which are slower and where the data are lagged, this is quick and accurate. The graphics on the map are helpful in warning of a shortage of bikes or empty slots and the app is easy to use. I did have to restart it to get new docking stations to show up, but that was a minor niggle.
