Good: interface, widget. Bad: TFL data, leaves wifi running. Paid for it once, now I have to pay again, so don't trust them. Better than Barclays app

Great to find bycicle bays. Sometimes is not accurate on slots and bikes, but it has become essential for me.

If you use the Boris bikes then you absolutely positively have to have this app. I could not be without it!

Good app. Does the job. Nice integration with maps and directions. Dodgy data, but that's probably tfl's fault.

App has direct feed to TFL so should be more accurate. Great for finding stations and user friendly. Recommended.

Was previously excellent, but last couple of weeks has consistently displayed incorrect data. Doesn't seem to factor damaged bikes into availability

This widget is excellent but hindered by inaccurate data from TFL, otherwise would have been 5 stars.

It maybe that this app is great, but the data it uses (london) is worse than useless. Never ever accurate, makes it completely pointless.
All stations red and no free slots of bikes are shown for Dublin despite the ticked box. The free version worked great.
