Me an Eminem.

Me and the boys.

It’s been a while. I have been busy with my daytime job the last few weeks and there was not much time left for ZugInfo and friends. In the mean time, Apple decided to feature my App on the ITunes Store frontpage with a nice picture. Thanks for that! And thanks to everyone who wrote such nice things about ZugInfo.

In the next two weeks I will spend considerable time on trains, the perfect place to work on ZI. Currently, I am aiming for two updates in the near future, one of them is already finished and and runs beta testing on my IPhone: ZugInfo 1.5.1. It will deliver:

  • Delay information (again).
    This was implemented in 1.5, but shortly after the release the Deutsche Bahn changed their webpage (again) and I had to adopt the html parser accordingly.
  • User interface improvements
    e.g. date information for the saved connections.

This should be submitted to App Store next week. For the more distant future (and a release in about 3-4 weeks) I am working on ZugInfo 1.6, which should/could/would include

  • Updated user interface, to allow for an optional “Zwischenhalt”
  • Arrivals/Departures for a stop
  • Save queries/Favorites

I hear you 😉
