Now Useless: Don't Upgrade
I am running the latest iOS, 9.0.2, on an iPhone 6 Plus. I upgraded to the new Bis Checker, and then updated it again a few days later. It's useless now. Do not upgrade. Now, it lists no buses coming for my favorite stops or stops on the map.
I deleted it and reinstalled the app. That resulted in error messages in the app that claim there is no internet accessor network. I am on a strong wifi and have cellular service. I turned the phone on and off to see if it might help. It helped motivate me to write this review because the app is totally useless now.
Negative 5 Stars
What once was a terrific/reliable app I used daily, is now garbage: completely NOT reliable! Just now the app indicated my bus was 10 minutes away; 30 seconds later it said two buses were 1 minute away; several seconds later "near." Now, NO bus and it indicates the closest one is 24 minutes away. The is just one frustrating example of a chronic problem which has been going on for several months now. Either fix it, or ditch it.
Haven't had to wait any longer than the times I've been given. Even when considering traffic the busses are usually there when the app says they'll be.
