Ratings and Reviews
There should be a feature where you can click a bus on the Real Time section and it sends a notification to your phone when the bus is 15 or so minutes away rawr xD luv d ap doe
A very good start
Needs to have human/marketing people to de-techify the app. RTPI is the industry name for the technology behind the service, not v consumer friendly. A "where's my nearest bus stop" function would be useful - it assumes people know the name and/or location of their nearest bus stop - often they don't. Also, the search/route planner needs to shift to real places "terenure to grafton St" rather than bus stop names. A real journey planner with times will complete the experience.
Before the usual diatribe of the endlessly negative begins, it has to be said that overall this represents a very good start and there is of course room for improvement.
So on the assumption that this app might be aimed at people in dublin who want to get somewhere i.e. Sandyford or Dublin Port but do not know how to get there.. err no.. as you need to know vital information such as bus stop numbers.. The search for a place is beyond useless, Search for Rathmines and you get street names. Clearly the data is there.. but someone has forgotten about the end user. They have simply built a poor counter intuitive interface that frustrates and eventually provides poor information. Do not waste your time downloading this unless you know where you are, and the bus stop number of where you want to be?
