User reviews of Ottawa Transit
Wasn't able to install the app on my Huawei u8100. Cheap phone, might be because of the smaller screen resolution? Anyway, would probably work fine.

Very good & Useful App 25/01/15 - happy New year all. Well after finally completely removing app & all traces of it & then doing a fresh install of the latest version here (and rebuilding all my FAV stops, busses, trips, etc) I'm pleased to say that the app is about 99% stable. Remember data comes from oc transport...Also 3... does an above avg support...

Awesome except... Widgets NEVER load. Always shows an exclamation mark with N/A. It would be 5 stars if this annoying bug was fixed.

With the new update widgets are still not working. Everything it says "data is not available at this time". Would be great if widgets worked, since it is already a great app.

Good App, reliable GPS data GPS data is very reliable and works great, especially the map function where you can see your bus's location in real time. Love it! Only issue I have is that using quick planner has a glitch that will tell you 'the time is in the past!' even if you choose a future date on the calendar.

Very good except for a minor hitch Edit: I tried what the developer recommended and it worked, I also found I had to lock and then open my S5 to get it to work. Thanks dev! Both small and large widgets always show "N/A no data available" for a stop even when there is a bus coming within 30 mins
