- Fixed VoiceOver issues with segmented controls and buttons. (VoiceOver reads out what is on the display, and for some screens it did not work so well).
- Increased size of 'X' icon to make easier to touch. (There is a Red X icon that can be touched to delete an expired alarm. This was a little too small).
- Caches are more robust. (PDX Bus is able to detect if it crashed. If it did crash it will delete all its short term cached data - this is just in case that data was corrupted. This will stop repeating crashes).
- Added additional alert for alarms that are too long to be accurate in the background. iOS allows apps to run only for 10 mins in the background, after that it cannot check the arrivals any more. This will alert you if you have set an alarm for more that 10 mins.
- Added 'Plan trip from/to here' option on rail station screen. A small overdue feature.
- Improved stability & added new debug options (e.g. you can turn off the caching, as that seems to cause some crashes, and several other fixes).

PDX Bus 6.2 - after all that, what was in it?
PDX Bus 6.2 was an overdue bug fix release. Ironically, the idea was to make it more stable and to fix some issues I had seen in crash reports - it's not a major release and wasn't really worth all this difficulty!
