Great app. However, for at least the last 6 months, the news feed won't load. I'm not sure why, but could you please fix this. Same with your Next Train Ireland app, too. The news feed was so handy to see service updates without having to go onto Twitter.

Very useful app, whereas Google can only give the expected time of a bus, and if the bus goes beyond its time it disappears, this app tracks the actual arrival time no matter how late/early it is.

Very accurate 27b constantly cancelled so very handy to have. If I drove I wouldn't be giving up driving in favour of bus , as service is disgraceful especially after 6 in the evening. APP great though.
