I’m happy to announce that I’ve finally finished and published the Edinburgh Bus Tracker application, Bus Tracker Edinburgh. It’s completely free, get it from the Marketplace now:
Main features of the application are:
- Find bus stops based on your location, by service number or by bus stop codes
- Mark stops as favorites and access them with a simple swipe on the main screen
- Acess the most recently viewed stops from the main screen
- Get automatic Lothian bus service alerts
- … all designed to blend perfectly with your Windows Phone with beautiful Metro design
(A note as to why I chose this name versus Edinburgh Bus Tracker or EdinBus: should you not pin the app to the start page it’s somewhat a drag to scroll all the way down to “E” to start the app. Changing the name to start with “B” seemed to put it at my fingertips in the long list app selector as well).
For more information and screenshots, visit the Bus Tracker Edinburgh home page.
If you’re an Edinburgh resident I hope you’ll find it useful on your everyday commute. (And if the lack of this application was stopping you getting a WP7 you can now reconsider it ) Enjoy!
