Planners fail Run some real world test cases. I just want to go from Trim Station to Fallowfield station. Neither the basic nor advanced planner can do it. I'm really rooting for you guys 'cause using OC mobi is painful. Help me please.

Slow Even with a strong wifi connection, I can't get this app to load any page. I was hoping it would tell me the times the bus is coming to a certain stop, but it only copies the OC transpo website with major stops, could just google that information.

Fantastic & handy Great app. Very accurate. Fast startup and not a lot of battery consumption. Very rarely has problems showing full fay's schedule. All in all, excellent service for a free app (no ads as well)

Nexus 5 Latest update now has a less usable bus list while viewing the stop view: drag to refresh only works when the map is displayed so now you have to drag once to show the map and again to refresh. Previous version review below still applies and is incredibly frustrating. Station list is now significantly less useful since one of the later updates; the previous list that included cross streets and an expanded list that included bank, metcalfe, etc was incredibly useful.
