Google Play Reviews

  1. guest-avatar

    So this does not work. Your 'app' goes from six minutes to two in the space of sixty seconds? This morning stuck on eight minutes for three minutes then down to five minutes immediately and then from five to two in one minute flat. Useless. No idea who is supposed to be handling these 'countdowns' but they are completely incorrect

  2. guest-avatar

    Great accuracy and ease of use. Not a five star because is draining my battery until my phone detects it and I force stop it. Improve the app to stop when I exit it. I don't need it running in the background.

  3. guest-avatar

    As so many others have said for a long time now, this once-brilliant app seems to run constantly in the background at 22-25% CPU & NOTHING can stop it. It starts itself (even when I never opened it); I force close it, but every time it restarts again. Apart from the obvious heating & battery drain, there are potentially serious issues: why does it run all the time & what is it doing with my data; why won't the Dev fix it, or explain this behaviour? Last chance saloon for me, I'm afraid.

  4. guest-avatar

    Good app, but sometimes the app doesn't show correct times for bus. There's days when I have seen a bus go past and haven't been able to get on because the next bus showing is in 20mins.

  5. guest-avatar

    When in Ilford, waiting for Bus 364 it kept showing only buses to Barking when 364 doesn't even go to Barking. Just showed buses going one way and none in the other direction some of the time the App does work ok but cannot be relied upon.

  6. guest-avatar

    Worked for a few weeks but became steadily more difficult to use - refusing to load. Reinstalled. Kept insisting my location was Tottenham Court Road when I was in west London! LONG advert after use are a bore.

  7. guest-avatar

    Originally, I'd have rated it as 5 stars. This app was great and was my go-to one for several years. More recently, it seemed to have lost a lot of accuracy, to the point that you were better off looking out of your home window to see if you could spot a bus coming. The final straw was when I spotted that its continual data download n the background had been responsible for all of my month's data being used up after 13 days. I've deleted it.

  8. guest-avatar

    Very unreliable with bus times. Sometimes tells you there are no buses due in the next 30 minutes when it's nit true.. Tried this when I was at a bus stop. I could see two buses coming, whilst this app said there was no buses in the next 30 minutes. I have missed buses using this app.

  9. guest-avatar

    It's OK but most of the time, especially of late, it will tell you a bus is ages away and all of a sudden one rocks up. Its just not very reliable anymore. Now uninstall Ed and downloaded another app.

  10. guest-avatar

    Runs constantly in the background, quick to download its ads and map, then very unwilling to add the bus stops and arrivals times. Uninstalled

  11. guest-avatar

    It is working good, but spend a lot of data usage. Yesterday I made two trip, it used 500 MB mobile data, plus another 450 WiFi data, and it used about 1.6 GB this month already, something not right.

  12. guest-avatar

    Love this app. I use buses most days and this app has never let me down. Especially in areas I don't know.

    Runs in background on it's own. It's not clear what it's doing. Hopefully not havesting data. The bus timing info is ok, but frankly all it's doing is using info that's available via the TFL API

    For most of the time it works great although there are times that nothing shows up.

    I liked it despite the ads until the latest update introduced an annoying bug. Now, when I use the nearby stops option and click on a stop, the icon pops up with the bus numbers, but disappears before it can be clicked. If you are a bit further away from the stop you want to see then you have to scroll far down the list to find it in order to open it. If you have searched for a stop just outside your radius then it isn't on the list at all (even when you move the map), so you can't check buses there. Please fix this.

    Useful but not always reliable. 2 wks ago bus route changed temporarily and the App said they were coming every 10 mins. Today they ARE coming every 10 minutes and it says no buses for at least 30 minutes

  18. guest-avatar

    Really great app but as many many others have already said, it's completely ruined as it continues to run in background when closed and has to be forcibly killed from settings.

  19. guest-avatar

    Most times the app is accurate at other times it shows my bus is going g to be 15 mins late then the bus appears within seconds...I will go on Google maps sometimes to confirm the bus is coming..but I still use app

  20. guest-avatar

    I've been using this app for years. I'd have given it 5 stars because it's really accurate and helps me plan my journeys every day. Unfortunately, like others have reported, I keep on getting a notification telling me that the app is still running in the background even if I close it so every morning I have to tap on force stop. When I forget to do it, it drains my battery in no time. If the problem is fixed, i will update my review; otherwise I'll have to uninstall it and try a different one.

    The bus service can be irregular due probably to traffic conditions and the fact it is a local device.

    Over the last few months the bus countdown has not been working properly ,its been giving me the wrong arrival times and when I have tried to enter the bus stop where I catch my bus it has come up with different locations ,as in the past it did come up. Unable to put this bus stop back in my favourites. This afternoon the countdown for the 403 bus towards Warlingham from Fairfield Hall said the bus was due in 14mins and two to three minute later the bus arrived.

  23. guest-avatar

    Not all bus stops are listed. Even months after changes. Developer e-mailed twice. No fix. Should really pull data directly from TFL

    Full page intrusive ads still and the option to get the ad free version is no longer available. Have emailed support several times with regards. There are better alternatives

    Rubbish. Used to work but just sits there pretending to dl data. Same behaviour on several phones. Uninstalled.

  26. guest-avatar

    This app used to be great but within the last few days I've found it saying a bus is coming and then it arrives 2 minutes before the app predicts it. This has meant I've missed a couple of buses due to this issue. I don't know if this is an app error or an error in the information you get from TFL but its rather annoying so please look into it!

  27. guest-avatar

    Brilliant app but unfortunately it drains my battery even when I haven't opened at all. When I force the app to close, it will eventually open itself up in the background later on in the day and continue draining the battery. Sadly have to uninstall to save my battery.

  28. guest-avatar

    I think this is a good app. But I have an issue with it. Everytime I close it, the phone recognises that it is still using battery. Why is this? This is the only app I get this warning from and I have many apps installed. Is this app doing something in the background that us the users are unaware of? Just curious.

  29. guest-avatar

    So I have had the app for a week, I have tried using it on many occasions, at least once a day, and it is just total rubbish and I have not actually been able to use it for its purpose. As soon as I open the app it's an advert and I click back and end up closing the app. If I do manage to get to the app I get the constant reminder to set my favourites and again if I click back it closes the app. This app does not automatically locate you like other apps. I thought I would try it but I will go back to my previous app and would not recommend this app

  30. guest-avatar

    Useful. Free so can't complain about bugs and performance really.

  31. guest-avatar

    have used this app and liked it for ages, its quick and easy, but now recently (like other reviews) the app is still doing something and using gps data in the background once its closed, very annoying, i don't need it searching for buses and draining my battery for the other 23.8 hours a day I'm not using it! YES, sort it out!

  32. guest-avatar

    usually very inaccurate with the bus times. used to be much better. not sure why its changed. you cannot rely on it. example today told me bus was 12 minutes away yet it turned up and i had to run for it. or sometimes it tells you the bus is 2mins away for 6 or 7 minutes. very annoying!!

  33. guest-avatar

    This app does everything I want with one omission. The screen which tracks a bus from stop to stop does not update automatically. A couple of years ago it used to do that. (If I touch 'settings' from that screen, nothing happens.)

    Great functionality, but continually runs in the background so after using it I need to restart my phone in order to stop it snooping and draining battery.

  35. guest-avatar

    It is a very useful app since you can see what time the bus is coming and it evens tells you if a bus stop is close which is really good.

  36. guest-avatar

    I've been using this app for years and it was fine until the recent update where I have to force stop the app as it runs in the background and I get a pop up in my notification bar saying 'com.affects.bustracker.MainAndroid..' sort it out or we'll start looking for a different app that does the job perfectly!!

  37. guest-avatar

    Just awful. This app kept freezing on me and was unreliable. Sometines it gave inaccurate data which was confusing and inconvenient.

  38. guest-avatar

    This is a good app in terms of the actual interface. You can find your regular stops and add them to your favourites and also order them how you want. The main problem is that quite a lot of the time the underlying data is not available so the app doesn't work.

    I only started using this because my old bus app seems to have ceased to exist. It's good that you can log your frequent journeys as favourites. I have yet to use this to it's full potential but so far it's not quite as straight forward as I assumed

  40. guest-avatar

    always useful I wait at many different bus stops and it removes uncertainty.

  41. guest-avatar

    Continuously working in the background, draining battery, slowing down phone

  42. guest-avatar

    Went to an unfamiliar place & it told me when and which buses were coming, which was very helpful.

  43. guest-avatar

    Easy to use and does exactly what it says, keep up the good work!!!

    Very poor lately bus times DO NOT match actual arrival times resulting in making it difficult to arrive at work in good time , very disappointed

  45. guest-avatar

    Awful app - it tells me there is no bud for over 30 minutes so I took a longer journey and then saw a bus sail past me! Today it said the bus was 14 minutes away, I checked again and it still said 14 - then 2 minutes

  46. guest-avatar

    I've used this for some time and it's always been good. But now after closing it completely, I have a warning notice on my phone that it's still running and the only way to remove it is to restart my phone. It'll have to go if this doesn't get fixed soon.

  47. guest-avatar

    Can't live without this app. Would get 5 stars but recently it continues running and requires a force close to stop it. Other than that it's a decent app. Update: Dropping a star again due to continued force close issues. Fix needs to be in the next update.

  48. guest-avatar

    This App is brilliant. It's level of accuracy is amazing. It has helped me manage school runs, work , general appointments including going to the GP. It's a Life Saver.

    Like that I can get escalator free journeys on this app Not possible on the others. Generally very helpful. Thanks

  50. guest-avatar

    This is just one of those apps that you didn't think your use and you ended up using it all the time would definitely recommend to people travelling in London on buses. Saves a lot of headaches standing around waiting

  51. guest-avatar

    Found the app very very useful and easy to navigate.

  52. guest-avatar

    Works perfectly except sometimes it says the bus is coming at 8:06 but it comes at 8:07 (example)

  53. guest-avatar

    I use use this app alot untill the recent update. It only seems to work when connected to wifi, which isnt great whem you are out and about. Any time i try to use it im told not buses for 30mins

    I have been useing this app for a long , It helps to know timmings of busses on your route and more I also have used for planning my journes for my requirements

  56. guest-avatar

    Generally very accurate but sometimes misses buses that are just a few minutes awsy

  57. guest-avatar

    I have recently downloaded this app and I think that it is a fantastic app I'm very happy that I have it on my phone now due to travelling on buses early hours of the morning

  58. guest-avatar

    Very useful and accurate. A good app to have.

  59. guest-avatar

    Sometimes bus arrival times are either on time or the timings are well off, most of time the bus times are correct

  60. guest-avatar

    reasonable enough but does not list all buses. will only show the best arrival so if there is another bus several minutes after the bus you can't get to in time, you'll never know

  61. guest-avatar

    Absolutely the worst app ever !!!!! never works properly !!!!!!!!! always load not upto date timing. i hate it !!!!!!!! do not install !!!!!!!!! Also full of irritating advertising insted of helping to get where you wanted to go to

  62. guest-avatar

    It's a good app to have does everything it said and I love it so far definitely would recommend it 👍

  63. guest-avatar

    It's brilliant when it decides to work. I often find it tells me there's no bus for more than 30 minutes, then I see a bus going past my road 6 minutes later!!!!!!

    Good app, but why does it need to stay running in the background after it's been "closed" ? Otherwise I would rate 5 star.

  65. guest-avatar

    Stephanie Burden

    2019-06-21T09:48:07.430Z

    It would be 5 stars but recently I have been getting a persistent notification that the SDK is running, that I can't get rid of. This seems to be related to the app.

  66. guest-avatar

    This app cannot determine my location from my WiFi address, others can do this. So if I click find local bus stops it shows me stops in central London, I'm in Croydon. I'll be uninstalling it shortly.

  67. guest-avatar

    Very informative as a public transportation user updates is very important

  68. guest-avatar

    app comes with insidious attempts to get personal data and ads that redirect. Never exit the app by tapping back arrow this tho trigger the worst of it. Always close down the app by tapping x in app currently running list

  69. guest-avatar

    As a London bus driver this app is great,as long as you know the bus reg. I use it every working day for myself and to let passengers know about other bus's.

    New widget is barely functional. Needs to be wider to see the bus numbers and times without the ellipses. Every time I click on the right arrow it crashes loool

  71. guest-avatar

    Great apart from power hog! Will drain your battery in the background and keep your CPU loaded. Fix this and it would be rated much higher.

  72. guest-avatar

    I switched to this from another London public transport app because that one had too intrusive advertising. Bus Countdown I have found to be much more intuitive and quite invaluable.

    the feature that lets you track the bus before it gets to ypur departure stop is great, and the predicted time you arrive at your destination is very useful

  74. guest-avatar

    great app, usually, could be a lot better especially when buses are on diversion (even temporary ones) so people are not waiting further along the route when no buses are going that way!

    Grim from start. Auto completed the "Home" location with where I happened to be, which wasn't at home. And wouldn't let me change it, even though there's an edit option. As if they've done the minimum they could get away with to get the ad income.

    This app used to be very good but I can no longer use the map to select a bus stop to see the arrival times which was the entire point.

  77. guest-avatar

    Stays active in background unless restricted manually and does not show live location when navigating to bus stop. Deleted as developer has not addressed the background running issue despite being reported by numerous people over 2 months ago.

    2019-11-14T16:05:52.746Z

    Really helpful! Now I only wait 1 min for the bus instead of 15 mins!

  79. guest-avatar

    Sucks; ghost buses in real life that arent on the app, sometimes on the app then disappear, doesn't account for traffic at all and trys to run in the background even after you close it. Have to force close in settings.

  80. guest-avatar

    this app is good. On the whole there has only been one time i was unable to get up to date bus information no matter where in London I am.

  81. guest-avatar

    Good but sometimes the times the buses arrive do not match. But it does help to know when to leave the house to catch the bus.

  82. guest-avatar

    Very useful and helpful however sometimes gives wrong timing though I don't know if that's a problem with the app or what.

  83. guest-avatar

    It shows no bus arriving any time soon at this bus stop, in fact a bus arrived in 3 minutes time. Useless app

    I am very happy with the service provided about travelling easy and quick way to find out when the buses are running and when the trains are running very good service thank you

  85. guest-avatar

    Searching for anything doesn't work. Not possible anymore to search for route, stop, anything. The only thing that works is checking your favourites. Can somebody fix that please?

  86. guest-avatar

    Great app I can c were my bus is, all the bus stops and what time I will arrive it arrives at them. Very handy. Def recommend.

    Love the app but the ads are very annoying. App does not allow you to remove adverts immediately. If no ads would give it 5 stars

  88. guest-avatar

    Tube, overground and Train information is not upto scratch.

  89. guest-avatar

    Very handy app for travel. 3 stars only cos it missing 473 bus in my location and bus times are not accurate in most of the occasions.

  90. guest-avatar

    Good, but sometimes unavailable.

  91. guest-avatar

    It's difficult to find new journeys seems to concentrate on the favourites only. I preferred it before had all its updates.

  92. guest-avatar

    has just stopped working recently. Won't even show up bus stops. Just keeps buffering. Before when it did work there were far too many ads.

  93. guest-avatar

    Its good for bus times, always allow a couple.of.minutee either way. Getting a video advert that won't close when I exit the app is unacceptable though.

    2019-09-02T09:16:22.150Z

    I was going to work and it said the next bus comes in '23 mins' me thinking oh God I've missed the bus I should have gotten, so I just wait later before leaving for the stop, then after 5 mins it suddenly said the next bus leaves in 1 min, by which if it had told me there was another bus I would have obviously left earlier but now I've missed the bus I always could have gotten and was therefore late to work, this app is worse then the usual timetable!

  95. guest-avatar

    this app used to be a lot better and easier to use. now its more difficult to find where you are or where you are trying to get to. please roll back to the previous edition.

  96. guest-avatar

    Great app, but now have to force close as permanently runs in the background. Trying a different app as a result.

  97. guest-avatar

    Not working at all for me since last update. App opens then instantly closes again. However stays running in the background like a virus that won't go away

  98. guest-avatar

    every time i open the app i have tp force stop it or else i have a pop up on my notification bar that says com.appeffectsuk.bustracker.MainAndroidApplication. sort it out!!!

  99. guest-avatar

    I've been using this app for a few years now & have no complaints :) The times are accurate & it works well. Thank you!
