User reviews of Cycle Hire Widget
Nice app... but regularly inaccurate... I can't remember the last time it actually showed me the right number of available bikes at a docking station. THis may be down to the app or TFL I don't know or care... if I can't trust it to tell me where the bikes are then it is useless

Unreliable in Dublin Consistently displays incorrect availability status for Dublin Bikes. Use something else instead.

Turns WiFi on without asking Using the map automatically turns the WiFi on. There doesn't seem to be any way to turn this off, and not only is it invasive it can make the app unusable at times. UPDATE: That was on a Nexus 4, I just tried using this app on a Galaxy S4 mini and exactly the same thing happens. Please fix this.

Essential London app! Very good in most ways but not reliable due to problems with the tfl real time data feed....hence 4 stars...also need a decent data connection to make sense....offline maps would really help!

Nice little App! Pretty good functionality EXCEPT that the compass showing you which direction the nearest docking point is doesn't seem to work. I can rotate on my feet & the arrows don't move!
