Dear developers: Just because you have the ability to update an app doesn't mean you should. -- the update is bad. Now included in the station search are stations and stops that are far outside of Berlin. When searching for a station I don't want to see bus stops in Frankfurt Oder. HALLO! We need an option of customizing search. Personally I don't need bus stops ever --so they only take up space in the table view. I wouldn't be surprised if the developers never used their apps as there are many small annoying oversights a daily user would notice.
Advice: keep the old version.
