Alight is a bus app meant to make the life of Singaporeans as easy as possible. First off, when you use the app, you will notice that the user interface is minimalistic. Everything that is important is visible on the main screen of the app. To start using Alight, you need to tell the app the name of the bus stop and the bus number you want to get on. After you enter the necessary details, the app will ask you to enter your destination.
One of the best features of this app is its ability to track buses all over Singapore. Rather than guessing your location in Singapore, the app will do it for you. Live tracking is a useful feature, especially when you are using the buses to get around Singapore. If you happen to doze off or you are reading your favourite book or watching a TV show, you won’t pay attention to what is going on around you. You can see that the developer thought about all these factors when designing the app for Singaporeans.
When the bus reaches your destination, you will receive a notification from Alight. These notifications are the main feature of this app. Rather than constantly looking outside or asking nearby passengers if you have reached your destination, you can just look at your iOS device. The notification feature is extremely useful when you are a tourist in Singapore. You won’t ever get lost in Singapore, especially when you use the public transport to get around the beautiful city.
You can also see how long it will take for you to reach your destination. Any Singaporean or tourist in Singapore will find this feature useful as it helps in planning travel efficiently. When you use Alight, you won’t have to guess or figure out how long it will take to reach your destination. The app will take all factors such as traffic into consideration before displaying the time it will take to reach the destination. For example, if you tell the app that you want to go to Suntec City from Marina Bay Sands, it will tell you that it takes 12 minutes to reach your destination.
Overall, Alight is a very useful bus tracker in Singapore, both for the locals and tourists. On this app, you can tell the app your starting location and final destination. The app will take all factors which can cause delays, before giving you the approximate time to reach your destination. The app has live tracking, which allows you to keep an eye on the exact location of your bus, without even having to look out of the window. The best and main feature of the app is the notification system. The moment the bus reaches your destination, you will receive notifications on your iOS devices. The notification system is the most useful feature as you can relax on the bus, without ever worrying about missing your stop.

As this is a very useful app for Singaporeans and tourists, the developer is bound to add a price tag.
