Their Glassdoor reviews (particularly for the U.K. business) are enlightening.
Looks like the old-school management they brought in utterly decimated the previous culture of the company. Surprise surprise.

Kanban is NOT an Agile methodology (although it often gets lumped in there).
To clarify: Kanban (on its own) is a process improvement framework.
The Kanban Method for Software Development (by David Anderson et al) is a means of leveraging Kanban to develop software in a less wasteful way.
Agile is not a process or a framework. It’s a mindset or way of being that allows you to change direction quickly. “Doing” Scrum or Kanban does not make your business agile.
And implementing SAFe definitely doesn’t.
Does this only apply to the Manchester app?
Corethree apps are used by numerous public transport companies, including Lothian Buses and Translink in Northern Ireland. (More are listed on their website)
Also, recall the massive outage they had last year: https://www.transportxtra.com/publications/local-transport-today/news/59045/silence-from-corethree-as-app-outages-cause-travel-chaos/
You are correct - Translink/NI Railways in Northern Ireland already has free Wifi on all their trains, but it does of course use the mobile network, therefore data rates are generally absolutely dire.
Note that we also have it on our express (Goldline) buses, which is slightly better due to the lower number of passengers attempting to all use the same connection simultaneously.
Took you guys long enough to get around to reporting this, given that I notified you of it about a month ago.
Speaking as one of those whose phones have been affected, it is a royal pain in the butt. It's blindingly obvious that the problem has been caused by 2.2.1 (or possibly it already existed in 2.2, but just affected less people for some reason). Apple *appear* to be investigating it (since they requested me to send them some files from my phone), but it would be nice if they would actually come out and say so on the forums.
And no, the problem was not caused by yellowsn0w, since many 2G iPhones have been affected by it, and also many un-jailbroken phones. (of course, I couldn't comment on which category mine falls under ;-) ).
The Apple Store replaced mine, no questions asked. Now my only problem is that DHL have apparently lost the replacement whilst delivering it to me...
