Would been okay but.. Timetable needs to take into account bank holidays! I actually downloaded the app yesterday to check bus times for today. No times updated for the Christmas/New Year period. If you solely had to rely on the app for this you'd be waiting here a while! And a bus tracker would be good so you know EXACTLY where the bus is... just saying.
Great app for the worlds least reliable bus service This fairly basic app gives timetabling information which is useful. But this app main use is the real time departure board at your chosen bus stop. As it's more common for my bus to be delayed than on time it allows me to leave the house when the bus will actually be there and not what is said on the timetable. Great app for a bus company I loath.
First Don't Care If Their Drivers Injure You!!! A First Manchester driver closed the doors without looking as my gf got on their 36 bus. First have responded with nothing but lies. They clearly don't care. They are using the Data Protection Act to hide the fact they have done nothing at all about the injury. And this app is a pile of crap made on the cheap so it doesn't work properly.
Needs work Useful if you already know about the bus network, but fairly pointless if you don't. Hard to locate the nearest stop for a route you want, or find out which buses go from where you are and whether they might go anywhere near your destination. No joined-up point-to-point routing (e.g. changing buses or finding nearest stop/route to a place or landmark) so only helpful if you know exactly where you are and which bus number you need. Then you can see the timetable or when the next one will arrive.
API request failed There's a frequent error displayed as API request failed,lost communication with the server. This happens randomly,but at least 4-5 times a day,which is annoying especially when in the rush and want to check bus times. This looks like a simple error which could be fixed easily,although I've experienced this error throughout nearly two years of using the app on various devices
Samsung S4 Mini The live departures are fine but there are two main issues with this app. The timetable for the route i use is incorrect (54 woodlands) and, also, my closest bus stop is a terminus so it has the same bus travelling in two directions which both show up as travelling toward the town centre (and none going the opposite way) so it's pretty useless as you don't know which is actually your bus. I have to use the info for the next closest bus stop and take a few minutes off. Please fix?
