I mentioned in an earlier post that I’ve now got a smartphone. I’d not seen apps before but now I’m hooked on these little applications, many of which are free. I’ve bought just two, one of which is Catch That Bus at £1.99 Start the app and it immediately uses the phone’s GPS facility to present a map of your current location and all local bus stops.
You then zoom in on a chosen bus stop and tap the screen. The bus stop name and location is displayed.
Another tap on the screen and you’re presented with a menu.
Selecting ‘Show Departure Board’ shows all departures from the stop by time, service number, operator and destination.
‘Show Street View’ displays the Google street view so that you can reassure yourself that you really are where you think you are!
I score this app 10 out of 10.
