Alarms require iOS4 and a device that is capable of multitasking. Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Brilliant App ( potential new feature? )
I really love this app and it’s heaps convenient for transport in both Sydney and Melbourne.
I have noticed that there is no feature to clearly distinguish between the standard Sydney Trains that accept Opal and the NSW TrainLink Regional Trains & Coaches which require you to book your ticket before you travel. I see an opportunity here for some sort of icon or service information alert to be introduced to the app that will identify whether the service requires a booking or whether you can use an Opal card.
I have previously had an experience where I planned a trip to Bowral and it wasn’t until I showed up to Central Station to get on the train that I found out that it was a booking only service. There was nothing on the app to suggest that this service was different from any other and I was very fortunate that the crew found a spare seat last minute and I was allowed to purchase a ticket on the train.
This is why I believe it is necessary to introduce this new feature.
New version has an awful bug
Regretting updating to the latest version - previously this was so reliable and showed each bus as it passed my stop, with an indicator of whether it was late or early. Now it's showing them in my trip list as the time they're SCHEDULED to hit my stop, but without indicating whether they have or not - meaning that I have to click into that bus to see where it's tracking in real time. As Sydney buses are notoriously unreliable, you can see where this is headed. Of the five buses "next in line" on my timetable, four have actually already passed and are three stops up the road. Makes using the app very frustrating, and I would love if it reverted to the previous style, when real time tracking determined the order in which buses appeared. (Formerly I would have given this five stars, it's actually the one app I recommend to everyone, as it's been indispensable these past 4 years. This new "functionality", if that's what it is, has turned what I considered an exceptional app into a very average one, no better than the fixed timetables at each stop; basically, I'm turning up and hoping for the best.)
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. We haven't made any changes in this area, and haven't been able to reproduce this problem. Perhaps it's a data issue specific to your stop. If you can provide more details (e.g. some screenshots showing the problem) we can certainly take a look.
Convienient and Informative
A fantastic app for someone who’s constantly using public transport. It updates with delays and incidents as they happen and gives you the option of other linking services if your regular service is cancelled or rerouted for whatever reason. It would be nice if you could turn on notifications for when your regular service has a delay or cancellation so I don’t have to constantly check the app just in case.
My only real complaint is that I’ve had issues accessing the 887 timetable from my selected destinations as it says there are no services when they are available to use and are for view on the TripView website. Please fix this.
Otherwise a brilliant app!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback! Regarding the 887, it's looking okay here. The issue might be specific to the stops that you've selected. If you get in touch with TripView support and let us know the exact source & destination stops that you're using, we'll be able to take a look.
