Buses throughout London accurately timed
Excellent, follows buses and timing given is accurate to within two minutes, which as GPS worked us ok, one flaw of course us that it shows a bus being one minute away for over five minutes when stuck in school run traffic!! Showing it is correct in that the bus can not move even though it is one minute from the stop, excellent, has been accurate all over London from Loughton, to Harrow, to Upminster, to several locations in Central London!!
It's Stopped Working. Again
When it works, this is a really good app. I rely on it every day and it's saved me so much time and hassle.
But it seems to go through periods when the live bus information, which is it's most important feature, just stops working, without explanation. This happened towards the end of last year and then, after a few weeks, it was suddenly OK again. Now it's doing the same thing and nothing I can do on three different iOS devices can get it to work, whether over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G. Emails to the support address go unacknowledged. The problem seems to be with the app not the TfL data that it needs to access, because the data remains available through a browser.
So, five stars when it's working, zero stars when it isn't and three stars overall.
I really hope the problem is fixed soon.
Update. 18 June 2015. It's stopped working again. Three stars is too good for something so unreliable, no matter how good it is when it actually works.
Fantastic (when it wants to work)
It's brilliant! Works 98% of the time, it's saved me wasting time waiting for buses that are 15mins away. An app that has actually made a difference to my life! There are huge issues with it crashing at peak times and can be really frustrating if you need to catch a certain bus, too many people trying to use it once..
