Dislike the fact you can only top up online with $40, i dont use public transport all the time, my local supermarket coles dont sell or top up opal. Would love to see smaller online amounts available. Love the fact you can watch where you are travelling along map and stop updates. Top up didnt show even when pushed the refresh button. I physically had to rescan card to show topup
The stop alerts were such a great addition! Pity they don't work very well. If you leave the app, it resets itself. It may say you have a trip in progress but it stops following. You have to keep the app open for it to work which seems counter productive because then you can follow it anyway.
Refuses to run, because, so it says, my device is rooted (it has a custom ROM because the one from the vendor no longer works reliably), claiming this is for security reasons. There is no conceivable legitimate reason for it to do this. There is nothing whatsoever this app does that would be compromised by a custom ROM or rooted device. Even if there were, that would not justify anything more than disabling the affected features - why the hell should TfNSW refuse to let me use the timetable feature in the app just because I run a custom ROM? This is the Government trying to dictate, administratively (without an Act of Parliament) what citizens can do with their own property. Perhaps a complaint to the Ombudsman is in order.
Why is online topup value a minimum $40 for adults and $20 for kids? Doesn't make sense for infrequent users of public transport to have such a high top up value. Opal machine's at station can take minimum $10 for adult and $5 for child).....why is these lower top up values not available online? Please take this on board for future updates as it not only makes things easier for everyone but saves time + congestion at station platforms
I was surprised to see a lot of negative reviews for this app as I could not get around without it. Simple to use, official times and consistently good updates. A lot of people are complaining about the minimum top up but it's been lowered to $10 for adults and $5 for child/youth. While I wish you could use your phone to be your Opal card the developers have the right ideas.
Provided me wrong info for two days in a row! Such annoying n the bus schedule is not correct! Adding the bus stops was a great idea but still.... sucks!!!!
