> Likewise -  There seem to be a lot of these bus apps around and some seem a bit fiddly. They take so many clicks to get the right result that you miss the bus staring into your phone.


Mine I did back in Nov 2011 did away with all the complicated stuff and just lets you find and save your favourite stops and pull them up with a tap.  It was written for the regular commuter who knows the routes and bus stops- allowing them to stay indoors until just before the bus comes.  (I know I can leave it until 3mins before leaving my house, then get to the stop as the bus is 200m away - great on cold and rainy days).

The bus app now includes the River Bus live data as well (I have a pier near me).

I then did one for the bikes using the same idea - I use the bikes most days and only ever use 3-4 racks.  The Barclays app was terrible - slow, map-based crashing all the time.  What I need is a "thumb-able" app so I can check the space availability of the rack I'm cycling to.  The Barclays one took some 8 taps with a really fiddly interface to get to that point.  With mine it's one....
