It finds closest stops based on your current location and displays next departure times. It also provides information on changing and connections along the route.

HONOURABLE MENTION

Bring!
So Bring! is not an App about Switzerland or the Zurich Region but it is “Made with Love and lots of Coffee in Zurich”.

Bring! is a brilliant mobile app that simplifies grocery shopping for you and everyone in your household. You can use it with your partner, your family or house mates and it synchronises the shopping list across all linked devices.

We love it so much we thought it needs to make our favourite mobile apps list. Best of all, it is free.
