Normally I wouldn't consider speed a relevant criteria for a ticket app. But holy cow, this app is slow. Almost every tap starts a waiting time of ten to twenty seconds while the app seems to fetch some data. Almost unusable. Edit: It works fine now.

Hallo, leider war das System aufgrund des 9-Euro-Tickets überlastet. Es sollte nun wieder alles funktionieren. VG, Ihre KVB

I have no clue how this app can fetch data so extremely slow even on WiFi. If it weren't for buying tickets, I would instantly uninstall this app. Also, it is absolutely ridiculous that one has to enter personal data to pay when being registered while none is needed without an account. And of course, I have to retype my payment method's details again on every purchase.

Hello, unfortunately our load balancer did not optimally distribute requests from Cubic (= app developer) to our information system; that's why it has been that slow. But this has been fixed since the end of last week. You only have to register with your full data when paying by SEPA or credit card and want to save your details. Best regards, KVB

Works most of the time, but would have expected it to work "all" the time, over the last 2 weeks I was in Köln, I faced multiple issues with ticket purchase via this app, one such incident being today morning at 7:30 am CEST.
