The app is great. Very convenient as you no longer need to drag yourself to the shop or bus/train station to top up for mCard. However, I don't understand why I need an internet connection to simply read the card for train ticket inspectors. I get why you need a connection for purchasing, that's obvious, but just reading a card? Why? It takes too long to do and just makes the 5 seconds it needs to be into 45 seconds of awkwardness. Even more if you're going through a tunnel or black spot. I'm sure it's been made a requirement by Metro, but someone needs to tell them it's daft.
Rubbish. Doesn't even read the card at all.
I have two MCards: PAYG (white) card which I tried to top up but there are "no products available" despite there being a "Top Up" button. Standard Adult (pink) card which I tried to purchase tickets for. All the tickets had a '£0' cost and so I couldn't purchase tickets. Reading the cards isn't easy as any movement at all prompts an error. The app really needs to be aiming to replace the MCard surely but if it's current function is to top up a card and it doesn't, I'm not seeing the point.
Won't let me renew my monthly ticket. Says it would overlap expiration of my card! Eh?!
Happy this app lets me top up mcard without having to queue at a bus station during the day or having to find a shop. It's a shame you need your phone as a counterpart for rail travel though
Disappointed - will not read my mcard. Was relying on this app to buy my first ticket, as travelling before 8am when ticket office opens. Could easily be solved by allowing old fashioned method of entering mcard number manually.
