Ratings and Reviews
The app says my next bus is in 16 min, the board at the bus stop says 5 min.. Well, the last 1 minute till the bus was due lasted about 5 minutes so I think the app is more accurate than the actual info boards so well done. Would be nice to lose all the adverts and occasionally it doesn't really work at all, but hey, it is free and can say quite reliable most of the time.
Long time user but too unstable
I've had this app quite a few years now, the info is superb and I don't think I've had wrong timetables or times shown ever! The main problem I've always experienced is its common for the app to crash, ALOT! Have now deleted because it's just too unstable!
Good but confusing
Seems good when you're at a stop, but I once on the bus I couldn't find a way to estimate an arrival time along the route. There doesn't seem to be a Help section, sadly, so I will never know if this is possible.
