Great app for London Bikes I used a competitor app for a few weeks, and got VERY frustrated with (lack of) stability & performance. Changed to Cycle Hire Widget, what a difference! Quickly upgraded to the full version for faves & 3 minute data refresh. Three quid very well spent!
Very useful I sometimes blend London's Boris Bikes into my commute. I buy train tickets without tube and then use the bike on the way to work, and an Oyster trip on the Tube back to the railway station. This app allows me to see where bikes and return slots are.
Do NOT TRUST this app It use to work, not sure what changed, but now directs me to FULL stations, when I need to deposit a bike. The app mocks me by telling me the data has just refreshed mere seconds ago with the latest, when I am clearly standing right in front of a full station. It may work well for London, but in DC you will have luck getting the right answer by tossing three coins and divining the answer.
Turns WiFi on without asking Using the map automatically turns the WiFi on. There doesn't seem to be any way to turn this off, and not only is it invasive it can make the app unusable at times. UPDATE: That was on a Nexus 4, I just tried using this app on a Galaxy S4 mini and exactly the same thing happens. Please fix this.
Wanted to like it The widget and app display are clever, although the red/green colors are difficult for colorblind people to discern. However, it's all but useless for the systems I've used in the USA (DC, Mpls), as it never has up to date dock counts.
Good but... Should allow map to be cached/saved. Too slow loading. Also the map layer showing docking stations doesn't "stick" to the underlying map when scrolling /zooming, which is very annoying.
Added support for NYC CitiBike
ofo is the world’s first dockless and cash-free bike share platform
