> 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....
