Crash on Location Set fixed Following the most recent update, the crash on location set bug seems to have been fixed. Regrettably though, the number of categories that can be searched has been drastically reduced as well. :(

Not up to date Starhub have move away from Cuppage Road and UOB Center but it's not updated

Bug Its qorking now, but no more shortcut from screen

New app spoils everything Cant do settings. Too many ads spoils the purpose original

More categories The set location bug is fixed but remove the honeybay deals in the app and reinstate the categories.

Bring back widget for bus timing The most recent update crippled my existing ShowNearby widgets and won't let me add new ones. I should have read the comments before I updated the app. Might look for alternatives very soon if widgets aren't brought back.

Accurate but.. I used to love this app but nowadays it keeps crashing when I try to open it without my location service turned on

No more widget?! I used to love this app coz of the widget which I can configure to a specific bus stop, for a quick glance and check for bus timings. NOW THEY REMOVED IT! Bring it back please! That was the single best feature that made this app a cut above the rest of the competition...

My widget disappeared!! The most frequently used widget I have just disappeared!!! Why!

Where are my bus timing widgets???? The app keeps crashing all the time now! Until you bring the widgets back and fix the crashes I'm going to rate this 5-star app as 1-star. You spoiled the most important feature of this app! I wish I could downgrade.

What happened to the Widgets??! My widgets just vanished?? That is one of the most useful widget in my homescreen. Please bring it back and can you make it HD too? Thanks!!

Forced close It has been getting worse since the last update. I can't open the app, it kept force close. Please fix it asap!

Crash after the update, widget is gone Even after reinstall still crash.. the update is a useless 1.. unless u fix the problem n get the widget back, this app will be forever useless.

Stopped working! The whole app & widget stopped working after the new update. Please fix it!!

Widgets!! Widgets was the distinct feature of this app. Without this app become useless. Looking forward next version with widget again. Thanks.

Really good but... Love this apps and always use it to check bus timing and nearest ATMs but nowadays, it keeps crashing if the location isn't turn on. Would've rate higher.

Uninstalled New addition cramped the app. I reinstall and installed again, same negative result. Bit worried about updating, adding engineers to take care on it.

After update to new version the Widget function is missing. Widget that function is very good to us but to bad.

No more bus timing widget? The widget was the only reason I was been using this app. Pity to see it go.

Cannot open it anymore, keeping crashing Cannot open it anymore, keeping crashing .

Crash Keeping crashing when launching app. Using Note 4

Crashing I can't even open the app now..

Crash on SGS4 Crash + widget disappeared. Please fix!

Widget Please bring back the widget......

Crashes after update Crashes and widget is gone. I used to heavily rely on this. Now it doesnt even open up.

Crash Keep crashing. Cannot use

Widgets???? Bring back them widgets!!!!!!

Crashes every time I open

Disappointed After the recent update,widgets are all gone,what the hell happened!!!(after so many complaints and feedback from so many users,please get this app back to normal ASAP!!!!

Keep crashing!

Widget and response The widget is always showing there is no favorite when I want to add a bus stop, even though I have added the bus stops to my favorites list. I have to go to somewhere near the area physically to add the bus stop to the widget. And since the last update, it seems like it takes forever to load the arrival timings during peak hours. It wasnt like this previously. Hope the dev can do something about this. I have been using this app for past 4years and the widget really helps a lot.

Slow and unresponsive Used to be good but nowadays I mostly just see the spinner and nothing gets loaded. Rather useless now.

It's the end! The data server has not been available for quite a long time. As of now, this app is completely useless. It should've been removed from the shelf.

It was good in the PAST I like using the past. But now, whenever I open to check nearby bus stop, it keeps loading and loading and loading. Seems endless and nothing comes out. What have happened? Please solve it. Thanks!

Show nearby This is not working since last week. Use to be great but wonder what had happen to the bus timings. Hope its temp

it sucks shownearby sucks big time. It was awesome in the past But im pretty sure you guys got really lazy and i had to be really lucky to connect sometimes. im uninstalling it

App doesn't work on Android 4.4.2 It was working fine on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. But not anymore. Fix this.

Majority of the times doesn't work Please fix and i will rate again

Hands down for ads and widget removal.

Return the widget Widget. Pls put it back

Widget Please bring back the widget..

Constant Connection Timeouts Constant connection timeouts when searching, can't get any useful information out of the app as a result.

Updates Bring Back Functionality Latest updates causes crash, unable to send feedback. I have no choice to give such rating until the problem it's resolved. The apps is practically unusable. *edit: functionality back

Server problems? Was quite good in the past... but something happened and it just keeps saying connection timeout...unsure if this is temporary, but as it is it is practically useless.

Faulty with the app? Downloaded but was unable to start using...
