This official Leap Top-Up app from Transport for Ireland (TFI) allows you to check your balance and top-up your TFI Leap Card - directly from your NFC-enabled iPhone.

Open the app and simply hold your TFI Leap Card to the back, top of your iPhone to instantly check your balance, collect a pre-paid ticket, or top-up your card – anytime, anywhere.

Key Features:
* Check your balance – see the current balance of any TFI Leap Card
* Top-up instantly by using the dial to select a top-up value or tap to enter your desired amount
* Collect pre-paid tickets e.g. Bus Éireann TaxSaver tickets or tickets bought online from LeapCard.ie
* View your last 5 transactions
* Receive receipts via email for top-ups made via the app
* Save your payment details
* View your card information at a glance
* View ticket information for tickets on your TFI Leap Card

Note: The Leap Top-up app's minimum requirement is an iPhone 7 running iOS 13.0.
Due to the NFC chips used on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus some users may experience scanning issues or delays when scanning their TFI Leap Card. If the app fails to read the card it is recommended to adjust the position of the card.

Helpful only when reader works

Love being able to top up from my phone, hate never being able to scan my card. The app constantly says there is a problem scanning my card—would be more helpful if i could create an account and didn’t have to try to scan my card every time I wanted to use the app. Or, at least be able to see the scan as you are using the app. In that sense, a very poor design. Once it’s open, however, very useful.

Please fix these bugs!

Hello, This doesn't seem right. We want to take a closer look at this for you. Can you please let us know iPhone latest model number that you are using. Did you try to reposition the card or try scanning without a cover? Also, make sure you click to open the scanner button at the bottom and then scan your card on the top of the mobile screen. Hopefully one of these helps Thanks, Leap NFC App Team

Unable to scan card

The app did not work for me at all. It constantly said “Error reading card” no matter how many times I tried to scan my card. The card works just fine on the bus and with Android phones. There is no way to enter the card number, so I can’t use the app to top up.

iPhone 13, latest iOS 15 version, no cover on the phone.

Currently there are no scanning issues on iPhone 13 on IOS 15 version being found internally on testing. Please ensure that you are scanning by placing the card quite high up the phone to scan, sometimes scanning depends on where the NFC chip is installed in your device. I hope this will resolve the issue for you.
