All that it needs to be I use this app daily. The features are what you'd expect for a bus application. Usually accurate to ~2 minutes, alarms are helpful, favorite locations are helpful. The layout is easy to navigate and the app doesn't crash. Thanks for making this! Makes life easier. Should make a widget with a favorite location/judges your location and gives you bus times.

Inconsistent, poorly designed. When you set a bus alarm to go off five minutes before the bus arrives, common sense would tell you that it should update the alarm if the bus was running late/early/got cancelled. What this app does, however, is set a completely separate alarm whose only data points is the estimated time of arrival when you set it. Missed too many buses to give this anything but one star.

Good but flawed The app is simple to use and works well most of the time. However I've run into a few bugs that, when they happen, really impact my use of the app: *Searching bus stops is buggy. Often, no results show up when I search by the second name in an intersection (e.g. searching for 'Gregory', I get no matches for 'Springfield and Gregory'). This makes me spend much more time searching for stops and makes some stops difficult to find. *I've run into stops that I can't locate with the search function, e.g. Gregory and the Undergraduate Library. I haven't found any search term where this stop shows up in the list (also searched for DKH/David Kinley Hall). It shows up on the 'nearby stops' map, but adding it to my favorites list from there also doesn't work. In any case, the app is pretty well designed and user-friendly, until you run into one of these bigger problems.
