Back in August we successfully crowdfunded our multi-modal iOS transit app (thanks again, all 838 Kickstarter backers!). The team is hurtling along with development.
Here’s the latest with the front end team –
+ finished wireframes and mockups.
+ developing the beta version of the app.
+ working on finding the best platform from which to deliver the beta version to testers, to make it easy to install and to send feedback back to us
The backend team is doing the heavy lifting with transit data and OpenTripPlanner –
+ developing the geographic router, which figures out which metropolitan area the user is in, so we can plan a trip using the local transit data.
+ setting up routing engine coverage map.
+ tracking down additional data and adding it to transitdata.openplans.org.
We’ve still got lots of work ahead of us, but we’re excited about the progress that’s been made. In particular, some of the nifty new UI ideas that we’ve come up with along the way…. Stay tuned for more details soon.
