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.

Not quite 5* yet.

Great app, over 900 reviews, many rated five stars. No question it's easy to use, has a modest layout and presents information in usable fashion. The only good function missing imho is to find the nearest bus stop from wherever I am, and be able to select your destination from that bus stop either by typing in or selecting on the map directly, and the app should present my bus options. For now TFL website and Google maps is the only viable way I could think of, which while on mobile data is often slow and clunky. Overall a very good effort, but not quite the best yet.

Still incorrect routes

I love how easy this app is to use, but my biggest bugbear is that my usual route is incorrect on the app. It shows stops where there are none, and no route where it actually is. It makes it impossible to check the time of the bus if you're not right next to the stop (putting them in my favourites fixed this issue for me). But if my route is wrong how many others are? Can I rely on this app? I have reported it severs times with no response - an unwillingness to fix issues drops the ratings for me as I genuinely do use and rely on this app and at the moment I have to double check anything it tells me!
