How to make a great app even better – a look at Moovit
I use Moovit all the time. What is Moovit, you may ask? It is an app available to both iPhones/iPads and Android users to help you navigate public transportation systems in many cities in the world. I use Moovit nearly every day of the week. Several times.
What does Moovit do, exactly?
Well, for starters, it tells me when the bus I am waiting for is due to arrive, based on the GPS located on the bus itself. So, I am not just relying on the schedule for the bus, Moovit estimates when it will really arrive, in real time. (In Jerusalem, some bus stops have solar-powered signs that give you this information as well, but it is not available everywhere yet)
It will tell me which bus(es) comes to the stop where I am located, and if a particular bus line is not running (anymore) that day, I can see that under inactive lines.
