Initially I had trouble, but got great support. Very useful map. Just wish it zoomed in more by default.

Fantastic app that uses live data from the buses GPS system which is then uploaded to TFL to ensure it is always correct. Some very nice features included that you wouldn't expect it to have such as being able to "drive" the bus across its route on the map. Absolutely amazing app and really worth every penny.

OH DEAR. Dropped from 4.5 stars down to two for me... The latest version (1.1) crashes everytime I zoom in on the map. On an HTC Hero.

Very clever and easy to use. Well worth it, especially for night bus journeys coming every 30mins. Don't have to waste your pint :-)

Distinguishes itself from the free alternatives with a nice home screen widget which makes it very quick to use in the mornings - one touch and I know if I have time for another coffee!

This app is great. Very useful and easy to use. Even though I drive I still use the bus a lot & this should help a lot. Thanks. ICS nexus s
