First time at #droidconuk :)

After a minimal blue splash will have a list of all closest bus stops around you ordered by distance. If you tap on of those entry you’ll access to the sublist of all bus those are arriving or those will arrive in some minutes.

…that’s all! Simple! Fast… and without any complications when you are in a hurry! 🙂

This is the first version but we’ll definitely improve it with some new useful features!
