Very limited functionality As far as i can see this only shows balance of oyster card which you can see on tfl website or anywhere you tap in. Top up just directs to tfl website so you might as well go straight there. Like all oyster apps no NFC functionality but I understand this is a tfl restriction. However i don't see any benefit to this app over tfl website or ticket machines.

The Oyster oracle It tells me all I need to know about my oyster brilliant little app. But now no longer works unless you go to the tfl website and login and then update your details. It's tfl changing the login details and process not the app creator.

Keeps crashing It used to work fine and I used to find it very helpful. After the update with tfl changing bits I sorted things my side and for a short while it worked but now whenever I attempt to open the app it always crashes before even opening it. Got pretty fed up with it crashing I uninstalled it. Shame really it used to be perfect.

Not so much a mate... ...but not really an enemy. It's possibly a little more useful for oyster card holders rather than zip card holders like myself, but it still tells me my balance. One concern is the random bar below the season ticket section telling me that something to do with my zip card started early Aug 2013 and will finish early Aug 2015...? It's meant to expire Sept 2014

Leah Hartley

Not working since last update This use to be a fantastic app but since last update it wont lent me log in have not been able to view my balance for about 2 weeks just keeppes coming up with errors not happy

Martin Kerr

Stopped working since last update! Won't load, not helpful!

David Heath

Seriously concerned App was showing me seemly random balances along with full oyster numbers and first names. Occasionally I was then able to transfer to the tfl website seemly already logged in. User names and passwords must be held centrally.

Andrew Little

Does the job! Allows you to check your balance easily and click through to Transport for London website to top up.

Can't log in again Having problems again I now have problems logging in with my new phone a Samsung alpha plus help as I love this app as when it works it makes my life so easy swing what is on my oyster from ease of my mobile who do I contact as have sent error report on my mobile

James Dang

No longer working? OK got despite the crashes the problem is found. The error was the fact it crashes and it reports an error. It turns out my credentials are wrong, as kindly someone pointed out. After resetting it and resigning in it works again.

Benjamin White

Inconsistent, delayed readings With a 4 bar signal and perfectly functioning 3G, after a day it can still give a delayed and incorrect balance reading, costing me £5.20 for making a £1.60 journey that it said I had more than enough to make.

Malcolm Foster

Needed to update online It force closed until I changed from a user name to an email for login, then worked great. Problem was with tfl.

Rodrigo Moreiras

Is not working! Every time I want to open the app it stops! Uninstalling!

Stratos Psarris

Simple and useful It would be easier to have an option to use name for every different card.

Nick Solo

Simple App Simple to use, shows my balance that's all I need.

Shihab Ahmed

Keeps crashing Used to work before but now keeps crashing .. sent crash report few times but still same

Henry Catmur

Easy to use free app No legacy issues regarding the tfl system change. Just make sure you have logged on to the tfl website and updated your details and the app works brilliantly.

Ruslan Boiko

man Guys crashing all time on galaxy note 4, fix it

Karen Wells

Is this app secure? If I have access to a total stranger's account, who is accessing mine. Worried.

Antanas D

Free app, no ads As free app, its showing what it needs and no ads either. .. thanks

Tyrone Goulbourne

Sandra Esprit

Good stuff Admittedly, I don't use a lot of the features but from where I stand it's easy to use and does what I want.

A Google User

Love this app - but now it's stopped working... I love this app - for years I've used it to quickly check my Oyster balance with a single tap. Unfortunately it seems to have stopped working since TFL's update last weekend. Please PLEASE fix it - it's SO useful!

Andrew Little

Does the job! Allows you to check your balance easily and click through to Transport for London website to top up. Update 04/12/2015: Is now one of the worst unusable apps with no updates! Uninstalled.

Kimberley Bennett

pauletta wilson
