I have been driving my own vehicle for many years, but I still remember the days when I was going to school, or even when I was working graveyard shift, and used to take the bus everywhere I need to go. I can't count the number of times I fell asleep or got distracted reading and missed my stop completely, making my trip even longer. This app would have been quite handy back then, allowing me to set reminders based on location or time so I wouldn't end up three stops past my destination. The app is pretty straightforward, allowing users to set a designated stop via their GPS location, or to program in their bus stop schedule and receive a notification when they are nearing their destination or transfer point. If you need a quick update on where exactly you are at any time, you can easily display your current location, heading and speed on a map. Available in the CB store for $4.99, it's an extremely useful tool for those taking the bus on their daily commute.
