While the app is functional and useful it has the following serious flaws: 1. The data is not live. I.e. once you initiate a search, the status and location of buses at that instant is fetched and shown. So 10 seconds later you don't know where the bus is. Then you have to keep refreshing and on every refresh it can take upto 30 seconds to fetch data. 2. Some routes are missing. Atleast on the ITPL-Banashankari route, 500-N doesn't show up on the app. 3. There should be someway to select a bus stop from a map view. Sometimes you don't know the exact name of the bus stop which you are at so would be really helpful in those places.
This app lets you know the exact position of the bus by getting info from the GPS trackers fit in all the BMTC buses and provides time estimate. The trip planner is the most useful feature I use daily. Now you need not look at the root number, rather you start looking at the registration number of the bus. It takes a very long time to start the app in 2g network.
The app needs a serious upgrade with respect to user friendliness. Its really hard to navigate between features. The information is not unified, we have to jump across options to get different information. But ideally all the relevant information like route, charge, buse info had to be easily accessible in one place
Needs material design, the UI looks outdated One of the issues which I face regularly is when the starting point of the bus is my stop. We cannot use trip planner in such cases as buses are not showing until the bus is in bus stop for departure, this doesn't allow us to track the bus for planning in advance.
Incorrect/Insufficient information I downloaded the app to check status of KIA (Airport) buses as I had a flight to catch. My nearest stop was Electronic City so the bus that I had to catch was KIA8 but this app was showing incorrect information as to where the bus is and how many buses were on route. I'm currently in the bus writing this review and this app is not showing the bus in which I'm travelling on the map. Moreover, Silk Board is not mentioned as KIA8's stop.
Its very useful , you know when your bus will arrive your stop so you can plan your time properly. its good app , once you marked your favorite rout it will be very useful . Some more accuracy in bus arrival is needed. This app has very high potential to solve Bangalore traffic . This App can be made very generic to use is all city & towns & suburbs . This app need to be made more popular more user should use. I hope all the problems of this app should solved and reach very success.
Bug fixes and overall enhancement in performance.
