Even without knowing Korean, it's very easy to use and totally accurate (bus times and location, etc). Foreigners can easily figure it out. Start using it today!

For my bus stops, the times are mostly very accurate. I go to a major bus stop, as well as one that has only one bus. The buses never arrive before the time indicted. They may arrive a little bit later, but that is due to unpredictable traffic. The times update as well, if there are any changes. Finding a bus stop in the map is easy. Finding it in the list of the bus route, though, is a bit confusing.

It consistently defaults to the opposite bus stop, even when I'm at my stop (i.e. I'm at the northbound platform but the app places me at the southboundone), which creates problems. It's also regularly about one minute behind the buses' actual schedules, which leads to additional delays.
