It's Does Not Always Work
Have had the app for a while. I wanted it for the line status updates and station departure details. The departure details are good, or at least as good as the TFL data feed provides. The line status details have failed in the past and at the time of writing this review have not worked for several days. Other apps seem to have the data so it would appear not to be a TFL issue. There is no way to contact the developer via the app and the contact details on their web site appears not to work. So unless the line status details are available then the app is only partly working.
Well after a few days the line status details are back working. Hopefully they will stay working so I can always use the app.
Routing algorithm is poor
The app can hardly do what it's designed for: suggested routes are weird, it suggest only one route and no alternative, it also ignores line closures. You can't tap on the map to start planning, which is inconvenient. Planning is a separate screen, and to start new route you have to press Back twice, erase old station names and type new ones - imagine that when you are in rush trying to check alternative routes.
Just downloaded this app yesterday and it's brilliant, mainly use it to check the status of each tube line, the widget/app is missing TFL Rail, also the app could do with tick boxes so I can choose which tube lines to display and hide in the widget
