- do I need a nearby page?
No. Show a stop at that location. GPS is used to quickly find a stop without user click.

- do I need favorite?
Yes. For quick access to time for a stop. I do not want to wait for GPS every time.

In the beginning there is nothing. Then use GPS, get a stop. A stop page is formed. If GPS found a different stop, a new page is formed. Now change to scroll to a new page that auto GPS.

- do I need lines table?
My users are uncle. If GPS return a wrong station, how to get the right one? Use search?

- do I need a status page?
No. The status is in the stop page.

- do I need a quick line change?

- what I want in an app?
Beautiful and useful. Pretty is more important than usefulness. It is the first test whether consumer will stop and look. It attracts users to try it. If a product is ugly, nobody will even want to touch it.
