London Bus App?

Hi TALF,

I've got a smart phone recently and wondered what the best app is for bus travel that includes a journey planner. There's a lot of choice so any suggestions are appreciated.

I use the mobile website for Transport for London (m.tfl.gov.uk). They have a journey planner function that includes all modes of transport as well as a bus stop function where you can see what time the next bus will arrive at stops near you.

I have a couple of stand alone tube apps, but none that include buses.

The best app I've ever had for this is Tube Deluxe/Travel Deluxe by Malcolm Barclay. Superb.

Yeah, that's the one I was about to mention. I've had it for a while. It includes all forms of public transport in London, and you can select which ones you want to use. It has departure info for every Tube stations as well. The latest version requires in internet connection to use though, which some people have taken issue with, but the developer's reason for going down this route are sound imo.

It doesn't have a live bus stop info function though, for that I use UK Bus Checker. It has details for every bus stop in the UK, and will show when the next bus due, and in some cases this is real time.

For travel planning that doesn't require a data connection, I use the London Tube app by Presselite. The Tube-only app is free but you can add the buses for 99 cents, or purchase the London Bus app by itself for 99 cents.

I like BusLondon Pro - good maps, live bus stop info and some other things I haven't tried yet.

The best app is actually this one http://t.co/oyaCGBdICk - My London Bus you can download from App store - i like this one because it picks up where you are and gives you the nearest options on where you want to go and its free - you can even put your walking speed in. Its crazy! Worth a download use it all the time and i live here!

The best app is MyNextBus for iOs and Android. It's super simple to use and it doesn't have all those compilcated things. It has only what really needed.
