Good but could be better

Many users are right in saying the app used to work better before the major update. I agree on the one hand, but on the other the overhaul brought in a few new features. What bugs me a lot is that with some routes there is no information about a bus coming in the next 30mins which often leaves me in despair, only to see said bus arrive in 3-5mins. I suspect this fault might be more on the TfL side rather than the app, but I had to mention it. Also, before the update whenever I opened the app under "Bus Stops" I would automatically see the stops nearest to where I am, now I need to always press on the refresh button to see them because I am always shown the stops from the last location where I used the app.
Other than that the app is super useful and works great, I use it all the time.

Very useful app, would recommend

This is an excellent app and I use it every day to check when my bus is going to arrive. I like how you can add bus stops into a favourites list, for the ones you use most frequently. I haven't yet tried out the Oyster feature, but I understand that you can check your balance, and manage your credit, etc. There are also links to the TfL website where you can check travel disruptions.
The app just has one major flaw that I've noticed so far. When you are looking on a bus stop page, sometimes when you tap on a bus, to see where it is currently due on its route, a totally different route appears to the one you just tapped on. I understand that this is probably just a bug, but it needs to be fixed. Overall, a good app and would recommend to any London traveller.

Marvellous Versatile Navigation App!! 🚌🚲🏃😃

Very practical and handy App which I regularly use to travel around on public London transport from various locations. I find it quite useful when knowing how long some buses take and when to be at the bus stop to catch it during the Autumn or Winter, avoiding being in the cold exposure. Also very effective when trying to find a destination on foot as it tells you where you are and the distance and route you need to follow. So far I would not be able to think of a better App or anyone which does the job as well or better. Highly recommended to any London frequent traveller!! 👍😃
