The 9292 app: your personal public transport real time planner for mobile!
9292 your travel companion
For those who are new to 9292: 9292.nl is the ultimate travel planner for all public transport in the Netherlands. With the 9292 app for iOS planning your trip from A to B will be even faster. This app gives you the real time travel information. Personal preferences can be saved and the lay is user friendly.
From anywhere to everywhere
The app provides various options for choosing your departure location and destination: your current location (using GPS), a known location (like a shopping mall, station or landmark), a bus stop, an address or a location you created.
Synchronizing travel information
This app doesn't need the same information over and over. Frequently used locations are stored and you can create your own locations (for instance: 'home', 'grandma', 'office', or anything you like.) If you create your Personal 9292 profile you can even take the trips you planned by train, bus, tram or metro at home with you on your phone. This allows you to synchronize your travel information with the touch of a button.
Check on your trip on the go
With this app the 9292 real time travel planner has become even more mobile. On the go you can easily check what time your connecting bus leaves and if there are any changes on your route.

Ratings and Reviews
I found a Settings that lets me select English as the language. However, the app has one or two pages of English, but when it comes to directions, icons, and alerts, none of it is in English. I found it completely useless.
Instructions for English
To change the language to English click on the screw in the top left corner for settings- then under "Algemene instellingen" click "Taal" and choose Engels instead of nederlands. Next double tap the home button on your iPhone (you should see a list of running apps appear on the bottom), click and hold your finger over the 9292 app until a red icon appears over the top left corner. Click this icon to turn the app off. Now once you click and open the app again it will be in English!
Then when you go back to language settings you'll see a sign say (please note, the language won't change until you restart the app. You will need to end the process entirely (make sure it's not running in the background!).)
And you'll wonder why this message only appears in one language!
I have only given this app 3 stars because I haven't had time to use it yet and wanted to post a review to help all those having trouble changing the language to English.
Love this app
To the review that questioned why an English option is necessary- English is necessary because it's the language of the world and there are people that move to the Netherlands that may be learning Dutch but are not yet fluent that also need to be able to navigate. Thank you for included this option.
