Data is from Transport for London. The app requires mobile data access and works best with GPS on (Settings/General/LocationServices).
What's New in Version 3.5
This app will continue to operate. This update is to let you know that we are working harder on our latest app Citymapper, which has all the functionality of Busmapper, and more. We'd like you to try it, and once you do, you'll understand.
Good for the basics
I've used this app for so long and I find it really helpful for timing buses. I'd never had a problem with it previously. However, since getting my new iPhone the timings don't show next to the bus numbers anymore. You have to click on each bus and then back out of the map it takes you into to see the times. It's a little annoying. I thought maybe I needed to update the app but its up to date. Any ways to rectify this? I also never use the 'get me somewhere' section as whenever I enter a location 8/10 it never recognises the location. If the timings problem could get fixed I'd rate this app much higher :)
Was worth the price but long since superseded by devs other app, Citymapper...
At less than the cost of a single bus fare (using an Oystercard), it's worth it. The only extra feature I would find useful is the ability to select and view bus routes on Google Maps without having to put start and finish data in, that would make it a 5* app for me.
Comment above is from July’11 but as the developers have made clear, whilst they have made sure that this app still works, development has stopped as it has long since been superseded by their Citymapper app which is excellent and covers far more than just buses.
For someone who had no knowledge of London areas, buses etc this app was such a help! Easy to use and gets you exactly where you need to be! Just type in where you want to be and it tells you where the nearest bus stop is, which stand and bus number and how far it is from your destination. Without this app we wouldn't have had a clue, anyone visiting London should get this app!
