Leap Top-Up App updated, shows recent transactions and save payment details

A significant update has been released by the National Transport Authority (NTA) to the popular Leap Top-Up App. The app allows owners of NFC-enabled Android phones to top-up their Leap cards without going to the shop, Train Station or Luas stop.


Since officially launching in January of this year, almost €2 million top-up transactions have taken place using the App. The new features available in the update include showing the most recent transactions and also saving your payment details so you don't have to enter the card details every time.


Speaking of the update, Anne Graham, CEO of the NTA said: “We have been listening to customer feedback since we launched this hugely popular app back in January, and the addition of these new features will greatly improve people’s experience using the app”.


For further information on the app including a helpful video on how the app works and a useful list of FAQ’s visit www.leapcard.ie/leap-top-up-app.


As Apple does not allow third-party developers to use NFC features of newer iPhones, there is no iOS version of the App available at this time, but will be developed should Apple change this policy. When asked about a Windows 10 version of the app, a spokesperson for the NTA confirmed that they are monitoring the popularity of Windows Phones in the market and will take a decision on developing a Windows version of the App shortly after these updates are available for Android.

The updated app can be downloaded for FREE from the Google Play store.
