Nearby Norway is a map-based application offering easy access to features such as real-time public transport departures, weather forecasts and a basic guide to find your destination in Norway.
Nearby is built on the Faster Imaging inMAP platform. By transmitting vector data rather than map images, network usage is kept to a minimum. This ensures that considerably fewer bytes are transferred thus cheaper use.

What's New in Version 1.42
-Fixed a bug with font sizes on iPhone 5S and other 64-bit devices.
-Returned the ability to search for addresses and not just place names.
-Fixed a bug that could deny the "Show direction" functionality.
Seems very useful indeed! :-)
I only discovered this app yesterday but felt compelled to quickly write an early review. It is excellent having so much live information available instantly - be it buses or trams from a nearby stop or how many city bikes are available nearby :-) So far in testing this in Oslo over one day it's been very good and the live travel information is presented much faster than by using the Trafikanten or clear channel apps! I'll write more after more testing, outside of Oslo too... So far so good!! :-)
