App History & Updates

What's Changed
Bug fix - If location settings are off app will prompt you to turn them on if searching for closest stops.
Main menu - Feedback suggested spinning the main menu wasn't obvious enough and button presses were clumsy, overlay now appears on main menu (can be hidden permanently) and buttons will only press if you click and release on a button and do not spin the menu.
main menu now defaults to realtime departures as this is the most commonly used function.
