Windows Phone 7's bus tracker app looks incredibly useful

From time to time, I find myself traveling on the Metro here in Seattle. You see, I’m lazy, and poor, so I don’t drive and I don’t want to bike more than a couple miles. So it’s the bus for me. I use Android’s SeattleBusFinder, which works, but isn’t exactly a UI revelation. If I could use this slick, gorgeous, and practical bus tracker app instead, I’d be much happier (and might even take the bus more).

I mean, look at it! The question (to be investigated further) is this: will the curated, Zune HD-inspired apps be the glory and limit of WP7? That is to say, will they be the only reason to buy one of these phones? I hope not, but I can think of worse things that could happen to a phone.
