Don’t bother!!!

I’ve had to update to this app as the old one had as old version had been turned off.
This app is absolutely crap and will be getting removed as every time I’ve tried to open it it’s taken forever to load.
I’ve tried to sign in every time as it doesn’t remember my details despite I’ve pressed the save details box and not supported on iOS keychain so that doesn’t save it but says details not recognised.
You can’t pinpoint your location straight away it just gives you a overview of the whole of the midlands with loads of little circles with numbers on them.
You have to pinpoint the actual bus stop you want to view the times of, if you add the bus stop and the one across the road to your favourites it doesn’t say what direction it’s going, for example the 2 bus stops I’ve added one goes towards Solihull and the other goes towards Sheldon but nothing is physically said on the page so you need to check and then check again to make sure you’ve got the bus stop.
Please go back to old version or get this app sorted out!!!

Awful user experience

This app just doesn’t work at all. So many poor reviews all citing the same bugs, I’m so surprised that a professional app with this many faults is allowed to be released to the public. Far from making life easier, it makes it ten times worse if not more. Even the website is out of sync in terms of information to go with this app, and it drives me absolutely insane. We’re told to use more public transport, yet this is just plain confusing. Maybe they can learn how to do things the right way from TFL.

This is awful. All I need to know is what time the next bus is. I could do that from the old app quickly and easily. No chance of that with this one! Why the need to change?

Also, I have tried numerous times to register and just get blank screens part way through the registration process and can’t go any further.

This app needs some serious attention before it can be considered to be even remotely useful. Take a look at TfL and the Cardiff Bus app to see how things should be done.
