No suprises in Germany

I got a little scared today when I browsed through the AppStore and found ZugInfo on position 15 of the most downloaded Apps, just beaten by the IPint.

First: Thanks folks, for all the downloading. I hope you enjoy.

Second: Dear Deutsche Bahn AG,

many people seem to enjoy this application. Maybe you could provide a stable web API, so I don’t have to live in fear of the day, you decide to change your website and break it.

Thank you very much.

PS: I never actually checked, if there is an accessible stable web API to the Fahrplanauskunft. If anyone knows of such thing, please feel free to enlighten me in the comment section.

    I’m a longtime user from the PalmOS program HAFAS Palm. You generate connectiontables on the bahn-page and upoad them to your device. With the Programm you can search the uploaded tables.

    Now I’m on an ipod Touch. Zuginfo is nice, but i’m not alwasy online. I know it would be complicated to get the Data on the iPod, but probably you can use the data from HAFAS Palm …

    @frogX: Until this is implemented, you can take the detour of taking a screenshot of the currently displayed schedule. You can look at it anytime later in the Photos application.

    How to take a screenshot: Hold the home button and press the on/off button.
