    Intuitive to use:
    Tap stop markers to see info bubbles - tap the info bubbles to see the departures boards.
    Tap departures to show routes and journey times - choose to view on the map or as a list. (Note that this is probably the only app that can differentiate between route alternatives for the same service!)

    A to B route finder:
    Not sure which bus to take? You say from where, to where and when, let route finder do the rest.
    The Route Finder scans the timetables to find the best options, with from/to stops, departure and arrival times. Tap an option to show on the map. Easy!

    1. Switch on "Track me" to show your progress along a route - useful if you are not familiar with the route.

    2. Tap the "disclosure" icon on the map info-bubbles to see more options for a stop (** now including departures for future date/times! **). Try "Long press" on the "Favorites" or "Recent" stop lists too.

    4. To get the latest stop update, use the "Refresh" menu item on the map. Alternatively, use "Preferences-> Clear stops" to refresh all stops.

    Travel information at its very best - never miss another bus!

    Been using the app for very long time now. Downloaded it for my tablet at home for my wife under my account, it asked to renew my subscription and so I did but now the phone app is asking the same? Do you really have to buy a subscription for every single device? That's a bit disappointing and ridiculous, what if I'd change my phone? Updating this now as creators don't give a fudge towards comments, careful what you buy the subscription for..
