New version needs redesign The 2.0.6 version (late March, 2014?) fixes some troublesome problems with the earlier 2.x's. It still makes less efficient use of screen space than the 1.x original, but is now quite usable. You do want to turn on Settings -&gt; UI -&gt; Fully Expand Slide-up Pane; with that, scrolling works through long lists of upcoming buses at a multi-corner stop. On the good side, the Search function for named stops now works well, and accepts corner names in either order ("University and Sixth" = "Sixth and University"). A wish: accept stop codes ("mtd0101") as input too. Another: allow option to hide the mostly-redundant name of the stop, when viewing a list of upcoming buses. It's fixed(non-scrollable), and takes more than 1/4th of my fairly large screen, but seems almost useless except for being a huge button to trigger refreshing the bus times. I'd prefer tighter stop-title panes as you'd had in 1.x. As is, at best, only ~40% of the screen height is devoted to what I'm looking for - lists of bus times. Likewise, wish for an *option* to merge all the upcoming buses at all corners, sorted by time, as I think 1.x did - a good display at familiar corners.

Updates not to my liking Used to like the app. Recent updates wiped out my "favorites" and the new layout makes it VERY difficult to view the buses scheduled to stop at any particular stop, also, doesn't give as long of a time frame as it used to. I'm un-installing it and choosing a different app.

Was good. The new user interface with the scroll down actually makes it a lot more difficult to read. Some of the buses last on the list are some times cut off from the scroll. The smaller scroll down actually makes me sometimes read the schedule wrongly. Unless there is a better update or a return to the friendlier past UI I am uninstalling this app.

Scrolling issues with new update I can't see all the buses at different stops, when I scroll it cuts off the last 1-2 buses.
