It feels like an age ago when Android users could start topping up their Leap Card with their phones. It was another of the niche humble brags Android users help over iPhone owners. Today, that changes as iPhone users can now top-up their Leap Cards with their phone.
Be careful though. When I went looking for the app, there were paid apps already there. You do not need to pay for this app. It’s absolutely free to download. Here are two of the apps you do not want to download:
Top Up Your Leap Card With iPhone
To do so really couldn’t be easier.
- Download the latest version of the Leap Card App for iPhone.
- Open the app
- Tap and hold your Leap Card to the back of your iPhone
- From here you can either check your balance, add credit or collected a pre-paid ticket.
The Leap Card app will only work with iPhone 7 and above due to hardware or software constraints. Here’s a neat “how to” video that might help you out too.
If you’re having an issue with getting this to work to have further questions about topping up your Leap Card with iPhone or Android, check out the Leap Card website.
It’s been ages since I used my Leap Card, for obvious reasons. As you can see in the image at the top, I owe Transport For Ireland money. Sorry about that guys.
