Cad o bus – the app that finds your bus in real time

Sure, it's always nice to be able to play your favorite games wherever you want and play with cool apps on your phone, but at least in my opinion, there's nothing like apps that make our lives easier. You may not know it yet, but if you live in So Paulo and get annoyed daily with public transportation, you can, with the help of apps, track bus routes in real time. I tested one of them, the Cad the bus, and these are my impressions.

<p>There are several apps with the same function in the Play Store. They all use the Google Maps service on the one hand, and the SPTrans database and real-time information on the other. The difference between them is obviously in the extra services and user interface. In that sense, the Cad Bus is one of the best. Its very intuitive and simple interface, based on 8 icons on the start screen.</p><div class=

The start screen with the icons, left, is the result of the right search. / AndroidPIT

<p>In Search, you can search for a bus by line number, origin or destination. After finding all the lines that serve a particular location, you select one of them to view the buses in real time or their itinerary. This function is ideal if you are at home and do not want to wait long on the spot. By clicking on the specific car, you can also see how far away it is from your location (determined by the smartphone's GPS).</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

The left search options are the monitoring of a right car. / AndroidPIT

<p>Your most commonly used lines can be saved in the Favorites category. It is also possible to monitor a particular car, and its position information will be updated in real time. In addition, in the Share function you create a Facebook post with the location of the bus, or then review the route through Gmail, Hangouts, etc. (ideal if you want to give this information to a friend). Finally, by clicking on Points, you can select a bus stop on the map and see all the lines that pass through it.</p>

Where's the bus?
Install on Google Play

The free app (featuring discreet advertising at the bottom of the screen) also has a very useful tutorial that appears during its first use, and a page with general information and instructions for use. It would be great if there were equivalent applications for all major cities in Brazil, do you think? Do you know any for yours?
