    The Dublin Bus app used to be great, but it no longer shows data for certain bus routes due to recent changes. Can anyone recommend an app that contains real time info on all bus routes in Dublin?

    Used to use Next Bus Dublin when I was on Android. Now I’m on iPhone, I just use the TFI Real Time app.

    The official Dublin Bus app has been updated and is available in the Google Play Store again. The 'show stop on map' feature still causes the app to crash though.

    That's a rant against the last update which has nothing to do with the OP's question.

    If you want to see all buses (DB and Go-Ahead), you need to use either the TFI Real Time app or Next Bus Dublin. The paid version of NBD allows you to store shortcuts (widgets) on your phone for your favourite stops.

    I find the TFI app very user unfriendly - for example every stop on the N11 (inbound and outbound) from Foxrock Church to Donnybrook is called 'Stillorgan Road'!

    I can save numerous favourite stops on my NBD app on the free version, I am not paying for it

    You can but to access a favourite, you have to open the app and select that stop. What I'm talking about is putting a widget or two on your desktop for a small number of your favorite stops. You then tap that icon and you get the data. So if I'm meeting friends in the city centre, I'll put an icon for the stop where I'l be getting the bus home on my homescreen and that makes it extremely easy to check when the bus is coming.
