1.0.3 new features

Version 1.0.3 of AMT Mobile has been submitted to Apple, it should hit the App Store within a couple of days (hopefully).

In this version, the most requested feature has been added in the station view. You can now consult the full schedule of every line in both directions. After selecting a departure time (which selects a specific train number), you can see all the stops across the line and their associated time at every station. Schedules are available for weekdays, as well as Sundays and Saturdays for lines that operate on weekends.

Of course, you can still see the next departures first, so you can catch a train right away. However, to prepare your trip in advance, click on "Complete schedule" (or "Horaire complet") at the bottom of a station view. You can of course reach that view from clicking one of your favorites, or going through the list of all the stations by lines.

You can click on the left image to zoom in and observe the feature.

AMT Mobile 1.0.2

Good news of the week, AMT Mobile 1.0.2 is now available on the App Store.

This minor release fixes the Info-Train panel to use the new shiny (and less functionnal) AMT website.

New version AMT Mobile

Well, a new version of AMT Mobile will soon be finished. Once submitted, it should hit the App Store in a couple of weeks. The next version will bring even more features and ease of use.

In the meantime, a new domain is now available, the whole project will be available through www.amtmobile.ca

AMT Mobile

After a lenghty process, AMT Mobile will hit the Apple Store in the next hours.

If you take the train in the Montreal region and you want something to track the schedules, or even know when the train is out of service (believe me.. this happens quite frequently), go grab a copy, it's just 99˘

Am I working for the AMT? No.. Do they know about this iPhone App? No.. Why did I do this? Because I was bored back in March and some people were insisting on me putting this on the App Store.

By the way, between the time I submitted the App and the actual launch date, someone has released a global public transportation mobile app. I think it's something like YUL Mobile or something (not to name it!). Of course, my app is better, faster, more efficient and saves the environment, but feel free to try both, I'll read the comments and improve as necessary.

iPhone apps

Stay tuned, I should release my shiny iPhone app on the App Store shortly. Just have to go through that program enrollment thing with Apple, spending $100US at the same time. Oh well...

I'm really puzzled to see if there really is a business model behind building those apps. At 99˘, ROI takes a long time. Worst when you consider development time and costs (more on that in another post).
