THE NEXT WEB UK & Media Editor Paul Sawers says: 'Bus Guru is differentiating itself from existing apps by providing real-time information... as well as letting you plan your journey... You can choose to view bus stops and full TFL bus routes on a customised map, and you can even see all the locations where you can top-up your Oyster Card around you, which is actually a very handy feature if you’re looking to avoid paying the premium cash-fares on London transport... It’s an intuitive app to use. Most importantly, it works and it’s pretty fast too.'
NEW MEDIA AGE's Ronan Shields says: 'I’ve spent many a frosty morning stuck at an East End bus stop cursing the lack of such a service and the Bus Guru site developers here have finally delivered.'

We have combined two very complex systems so please email the Bus Guru Support Team email@example.com if you find any blips and we will update the app.
As with all good location-based apps, Bus Guru works with your phone’s location services (3G/GPS/GPRS/WiFi) and searches for up to 10 seconds to locate you as accurately as possible when you open the app so please make sure your setting for location services are on.
TFL LIVE COUNTDOWN DATA
If the app ever says ‘No Data Available’ it is either due to TFL’s data being temporarily unavailable or your location is outside the TFL Live Countdown zone.
If you do experience any problems then please do contact the Bus Guru Support Team firstname.lastname@example.org (before rashly leaving a bad review) as we can most likely swiftly solve it for you. Feedback is always read and considered.

Free = 4*, Paid = 0*
So I previously used the free app and had only occasional issues, but decided to move to the paid to improve the speed (by removing ads).. Since changing however the app hasn't worked. To clarify, the first three days it did work, but provided inaccurate bus times (even tho the free app was always correct) and since then it only says that it is 'unable to connect' even continuing after I deleted and reinstalled it! I'm not sure how the developers have made a good free app but terrible paid one, but apparently that is what's happened.. It's a big shame
I bought this app for the countdown data as the tfl website is a bit clunky on the iPhone.
I have so far not been able to get this (rather expensive) app to do anything other than say "Loading" or "Could not connect". I click on the app support link to see a web version of the app, and no support.
This is a very poor show.
Refund And compensation!
Never worked! I should demand a full refund and compensation for my time wasted trying to use this app! However my time is to precious to waste further on anything related to this app. If I could slap the developer I would happily do so!
