Dear devs: Please stop preventing users from using this app when it's not the "bleeding edge, absolute latest" version. I understand updates are important when it comes to security issues and major bug fixes, but unless there's a really good reason to, you shouldn't be preventing users from using it at all unless they update it. Before you ask us to turn on auto-update, please understand that it's not a realistic option for everyone, especially when they're constrained by mobile data.

The app works but it's a usability nightmare. Planning a trip is slow when searching for stations, no recent search history, and the app always returns to the home screen when you switch away. As others mentioned, any money left on a card when you are done with it is basically forfeit so don't load the card with anything more than you need.

Does not work. Always throws up errors and keeps turning off auto top up. Have to use web browser so the app is totally pointless Edited 3/6/24 after developer response totally missed the point of my review. The issue is not with my opal card. The issue raised is due to the buggy App as I've clearly articulated. If I could give a lower rating for the App and the total lack of care in providing feedback I would.
