But the people in Tapadoo have managed to both make a useful, functional app with a humorous twist
The app follows founder Dermot Daly‘s mantra to perfection – do one thing well.
A couple of taps and your daily commute buses can be set up so there’s no fiddling about every time you want to use it.
In fact, it works far better than Dublin Bus’s own effort or even the signs at the bus stops.
When something does go wrong (more often than not the fault of the Real Time Information rather than the app) it will show a southside/northside appropriate error (above) based on your current location.
And how much for a beautifully crafted app like this?
Not a brass farthing.
