You know that things are looking good when you find a dedicated group of Accessibility-specific settings in an app. And, so far, this app has lived up to the expectations that this created - it is very accessible and easy to use with VoiceOver. Kudos to the developers!

I have an app called Travelline GB that looks almost exactly like this one, except it's not as accessible. Might this be a renamed, revamped version of that?
I currently have both installed, so they are definitely 2 different apps.
My guess is that they both use the same live data system, so this probably explains the similarities.
I was just browsing through the website and I saw the review for this app. Impressed by the fact that it was accessible, I went straight to the App Store to download it. I was a little sceptical when I saw who the app developer was as, I already own travel line GB which is, if I remember correctly, made by the same developer. Anyhow, I went to head and downloaded it. What did I have to lose? It was free after all. After downloading and installing, I opened it up, and sure enough, the app looks exactly like travel line GB. Either I am missing something, or this app developer has made to apps exactly the same. The one advantage is however, that it does appear to be free, though there are in-app purchases.
