4.0 out of 5 stars An Essential App for the Bus User, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UK Bus Checker(Kindle Tablet Edition) (App)
From my personal experience, living on the outskirts of a large city, I find this to be is an extremely useful app. It makes it very easy indeed to travel from A to B with minimal fuss and maximum know-how about which is the best route for the specific destination. However it is important to note before purchase that it requires an Internet connection in order to operate appropriately.

Live as well as scheduled bus information is available However the accuracy of the live information is dependent on the streams that are received via the buses and from my experience are not always to be relied on at this point in time, although this is no reflection on the quality and capability of the app itself.

The maps look very good on the Kindle Fire HD and it is a very straightforward process to locate stops local to a particular geographical location by entering a postcode or street name.

Once a bus stop has been selected from the various choices, the route numbers of buses which stop there are listed together with the times that they are due to arrive. When a particular bus has been selected, the various stops en route to the destination are shown, together with the route numbers of buses which stop at each bus stop. This is particularly useful when making a journey which involves changing buses and determining the quickest means of reaching a specific destination.

This is a most useful app, which serves my purposes well and once the accuracy of live data from the bus companies improves will really represent the most perfect app.
