Essential for life in London


This app has saved me so much hassle and unnecessary waiting time in the mere week I've had it. Nicely laid out, simple interface - you can easily see nearest bus stops as well as the whole bus line, tho I wish it was easier to switch from one to the other. But fabulous app overall - you can get departure times from TFL but not nearby bus stops, and this interface is so easy it's worth buying.

Simply the best!!!

London Doc

Have used London Bus Checker for a month and describe it as the best-designed and most useful app I own. It is amazingly accurate and essential if you live on London or plan to visit there. I've been waiting for something like this for years! Worth every penny and more.

Does exactly what I hoped


This app is great - it does exactly what I hoped. It was super easy to find the bus stop near my house and to add it to my favourites. Now I can quickly check my phone before I leave the house to see when the next bus is coming. I love it.
