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

Worse bus app ever

This app is a complete joke I got told it was good and looked at some reviews but how people can say this is good is a utter joke and the people saying that must work for the app provider or creator because this app is the worst bus app around it doesn’t give you the quickest route possible and 9/10 times gives you the wrong information, I thought I’d test it out on my route to work it tried sending me the wrong direction told me to get buses that go no where near my work and then when I have it another try to see what way it would tell me to go home the route it suggested is 1hour 10 mins longer that it actually takes me to get home it sugessted a route that would take 2hours 17mins when it only takes me 1hour 5mins max to get to work do yourself a favour do not down load this app for routes and it never works for the live times either I was standing at a bus stop and it said there was no bus stops near me a complete joke of a app

Could and Should be Great

I paid for the ad-free version of this app because it was solid in design and usefulness and I used it twice daily at least.

Then the developers added a silly shake-for-playlist feature which cannot be disabled. Believe me, if you’re running for a bus and need to check the app quickly only to find the Playlist screen has appeared yet again (and is really fiddly to dismiss) because you have been running or handling your phone in a hurry, it’s beyond infuriating.

Who uses a bus times app to listen to music anyway? The iPhone’s own Music app is far better. At the very least users should be given the option to disable it then all would be great again. Until then, I’d suggest going with TFL’s own Bus Times app instead.

Developer Response ,

Update: Thank you for your patience, the issue with the Playlists screen has now been fixed. Please update to the latest version of Bus Times London for the fix to be implemented. If you have any further problems please let us know.

Thanks for your feedback, we are looking into the Playlists screen so that it doesn't cause frustration for our loyal users. Please bear with us whilst we do this. Many thanks!
