Flip from Favourites or Finder screen back to Map view in order to refresh the display of nearby bus stops.

Version 1.08 alphabetically sorts bus-stops in the Favourites view. You can control this in the Settings menu. This update also increases the brightness of the departures text to help readability outdoors. A great update!
Version 1.07 fixes a bug where bus stops were referenced in the database by name, rather than by a unique ID. This new version resolves this problem so now it is possible to add both directions of a bus stop to your favourites.
