What's New in Version 4.0.12
Showed all the Stops
Was recommended by my Hotel Velvet Receptionist & was she correct. App shows (in English) when next train, tram, bus, or underground is coming. How to walk to pick up point (on their built in map) from current location. What connections are (if you expand view). Direction your transport needs to be going (very important!) ie bus or trains final destination. And if expanded how many stops along the way. CAUTION: you do have to know the destination stations name your going TO, You can't just use street address with #.___ However you can usually find that location in another maps app & they should display nearest destination station(s). Otherwise great app.
Everything you need / unneeded detail
I found this app extremely useful to find suggested routes through the city. The interactive map is amazingly useful. However, the timing was unreliable. U just used their suggested routs, ignoring the useless precision to which the app claims the Berlin transport system follows (all the buses were late anyway and even the trams were off time a bit as compared to the app). Overall, it was an invaluable aid to our visit through the city.
