Next Bus UK - App Spotlight

We've already got a handful of travel aid apps for the UK, including London transport, car parking and National Rail. Allow me to introduce Next Bus UK, a helpful app that pulls realtime and scheduled timetables for bus networks across England, Wales, and Scotland. Data is provided by Traveline and will come in handy for any frequent traveller.

Some of the app features:

  • Find the next buses due at over 370,000 stops
  • Find the nearest stops around your location
  • Search for stops using place names, postcodes and street names
  • Save your favourite stops for quick access
  • Shows you the distance to your nearest stops in a list form
  • Choose between using Bing or Google maps
  • Designed for minimum battery usage: only searches your location when requested
  • Built in User guide
  • Easy and quick to use
  • London bus times (not realtime, yet)

A Mango update is on the way that will bring live tile support and more.

You can download Next Bus UK from the Marketplace for £1.49 ($1.99).  Check out the demo video after the break...

How good is this app, just tested it and found it to be pretty accurate. No more waiting for busses that are not coming.

This is great and its featured applications are totally awesome. Are this features already present once I download this application? What are the things to I have to comply before  I am allowed to have this features?
