I find this invaluable! My nearest bus comes only about every 15-20 minutes but with the app I don't have to leave the house until it's due instead of sometimes having to stand outside for 15 minutes. The nearest bus stop and map are also incredibly useful.

I've used this app for ages but recently it is showing no departures from my local stop. I've re-installed but no joy..., I replaced with tram and bus app and I found this v strange eg when a bus is within say half a mile it disappears so if you've not been tracking previously you may miss it.

Iconic and best Lothian buses app. Been using a version of it since Blackberry Bold days. It's clear, functional and straightforward, and has never (to my knowledge) been offline. Recommended. Thanks Nial.
