The new London bus application makes it easy to travel in and around the city by bus. Unlike old fashioned schematic style maps this product contains a geographically accurate map showing streets, parks and places of interest etc.
The map is hand drawn by Visual IT and provides a unique geographically based view of London bus routes covering 450 square miles so you can easily get your bearings when travelling around the city. You can also use your inbuilt GPS to accurately locate and track yourself and see the nearest transportation stop and distance to it. This is the only public transportation route planner with this ability.
Tap on the map for location information, use the inbuilt search feature or choose from a list of locations. Places of interest, museums, hotels, parks, restaurant, shops, hospitals, streets, etc, are also included. The route planner will automatically suggest the nearest stop to any place of interest you select.
Now with the ability to place markers, routes and areas of interest directly on the map for future reference.
♦ MINUTE MAP
Another unique feature is the “Minute Map” option which allows you to see the travel times from a start point to all other locations on the map. This is a great way to view the topology of a city and gauge travelling times.
The application does not require an internet connection and will always be available to display a clear and detailed view of the bus routes, plus list and animate the optimum route for your journey. This product provides the fastest route calculations of any mobile routing application using actual published journey times with the ability to select the quickest route or the route with the least changes.
♦ LIVE INFO
When an internet connection is available, optional "Live Information" on the current state of the transport services can be viewed allowing you to plan your journeys in advance and avoid any potential delays. Unique to this application is the ability to turn off services that are out of action and automatically calculate an alternative route.
♦ LIVE BUS DEPARTURES
Also included is the ability to view live bus departure (data supplied by TFL) for any of the bus stops supporting this data feed.

What's New in Version 1,8
I can't say enough about this. Not only is it one of the clearest and most information-rich maps available - and I have several London mapping apps of different strengths on my iPad - , but the ease of use and comprehensiveness of the bus routes provided is just amazingly good. Wonderful work by the app developers! An ongoing treasure to me while I've been in London and continually useful when planning future visits and routes to events and places. Immediately offers alternatives to simple 'take the tube' route planning.
Best transit app EVER
Fantastically useful app! Works offline, and includes street map with bus stand positions nicely laid out. Relied on it exclusively for all bus information during recent visit to London. Planned with it ahead of time, and used it to change plans in real time. Worked perfectly, except for one bus change at Euston station (going from British Museum to Madam Tussaud's) that I just couldn't figure out.
Use this while in London on holiday for three days. Saved us a lot of time, very easy to use. I would just find subway stations close to our origination and destination and use that for the start and stop stations on the app. Would not have been able to use the bus without it.
