Bus app

The bus app is a very good app and it’s not bad because anytime you need you will always know you have with you when you need it in any situations but the app itself as well as it working condition is good it never freezes but sometimes it doesn’t show because of the connection so if you have a good connection you should have no problem at all and this is my honest opinion about this app so anybody who wants t read it and it should give them or anybody the idea or the way the app how it performance

Unintuitive and clunky - use a different app

This is not the best app for London bus times. The most frustrating thing for me is the adverts which pop up in full screen when you open the app - if you’re running for a bus and need to check what time it’s coming, or need to figure out which bus to get quickly, the last thing you want is to find the hidden X to close the ad before you can see your bus times. Obviously this is to encourage you to pay for ad free, but it makes it not fit for purpose.

It’s also quite clunky and not very intuitive. For example, bus times don’t appear in the order they’re arriving, so if you want to see which bus is coming first, you have to scroll down the list. Then if you want to go and check the bus times for a different stop on your bus route, whereas some apps have a very smooth transition, this one is very clunky and takes several presses to get to where you want.

All in all, there are better apps out there. Definitely don’t pay for ad free, as there are alternative apps which display ads in a way that doesn’t stop you from doing the very thing the app is supposed to do.

Could be great but a significant, fundamental flaw

This app could be good but there is a really significant flaw: unless you know the exact name ***and*** bus stop letter it is very poor for planning. With a bus route diversion, we had to spend more than 30 minutes searching for an alternative stop to check times. However, if you drag the map the area or focus does not automatically repopulate with stops (which is the utterly logical way of doing this) but you have to type in street names (and the naming of stops is not always logical - probably not the app developer’s fault). We were driven nuts trying to find a stop with live times in this case and ended up downloading a competing app to get the information.
There’s a lot to like about this app but for forward planning from stops not within a few hundred metres of your current location I would give it a zero stars if I could. Fix that and I’d give it a 5. And yes, I’m well aware of the Route Planning feature: it requires knowledge of street/stop names. Hopeless.
