As there is no official accessible way of obtaining your oyster card balance on the iPhone we bring you Oyster Balance :)
What's New in Version 6.3.5
The widget has been improved to include travel cards and update automatically in the background!
The app now loads your balance 75% faster than before!
Also, some users were unable to see their balance recently, this has been fixes and apologies for the inconvenience :).
Thanks for the ongoing support!
Good but could do much better
The app works well on both iPhone and iPad Mini. It shows accurate balance with summary of most recent journeys and top ups. Would be much improved if all stations in the Oyster scheme were included in the Journey Cost Calculator, not just London Underground.
Despite The Update STILL Does Not Work
Despite the developer claiming that it has been fixed, it hasn’t. It does not get my oyster cards from my account nor does it display the balance(s). I only purchased this because it offered a widget - other competitor apps work flawlessly. My advice: look at a different app, this simply does not work and should be removed from the app store.
Really easy app
Had this for a few years now works really well once set up but I suspect the limitations are due to the Tfl Api rather than the app.
