As all of you living in London will know, travel is an obstacle you have to face everyday. With the millions of people visiting London each day, it’s hard to find various places thanks to the crowded and busy streets. Well, with the help of the Bus Checker application for iPhone, you’ll always be able to find the closest bus stop wherever you are!
The newly released iPhone app, called Bus Checker, is available on the iTunes App Store for the low price of £1.49, which to be honest if it helps you get around the busy streets of London, it’s a bargain!
The app, created by FatAttitude, provides live data for 19,000 bus stops across the capital. Also included in the app, are GPS-enabled maps that will assist users in finding the nearest bus stops. You can also save you favourite bus stops for easy access.
The app is still in the beta phase, but is expected to taken out of the testing phase by the end of the year.
The data is currently provided by Tfl, who also provide data to a rival iPhone app bus checker called “Next Bus London”, which is available for 69p in the App Store.
