Useful app but needs some improvements

We used this app for finding our way around Edinburgh on the buses during our holiday. Having never been to Edinburgh before this app came in very handy for knowing what route to take. However the app needs some improvement. The timetable it seems to be using is out of date. The times were far from accurate and differed from the times posted at the bus stops. The route planner should also tell you what stop you need to get off at rather than just where that bus route terminates. Where the bus terminates is of no use if you need to get off at one of the stops before.

Great! At last a bus route planner & more for Edinburgh

I've tried various bus apps for Edinburgh but with most you need to be familiar with the bus routes already, so the apps will mainly just tell you times for a buses leaving from a particular stop.

Edinburgh by Bus is the first app I've found where you can enter your start point (or it goes from your current location) and destination, just like a sat nav app, and it will find the best buses to take and the changes you'll need to make. Brilliant and nicely done.

Added to this are other useful tourist info and features for visitors.

What happened to all the usual buttons?

The new version is cool but getting around was easier when 'my places' was an option. Now it's been taken out and options for editing are gone. Pls correct it....we are not all tourists. I had my gym,work place and home at the touch of a button and I could find my way from anywhere. Pls sort it out.
