NextTrain BART - AR
By Blue Orange Apps Limited
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
For iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S users, FREE Augmented Reality Feature is included.
NextTrain BART tells Bay Area BART riders how many minutes are left until the next train comes and the length of each coming train.
NextTrain BART works with all metro stations in the Bay Area, and for trains in all directions.
Station names can be sorted alphabetically or according to distance from the user's location. Alphabetical sorted stations have a tappable index for quick access. Additional features include walking directions to any selected metro station and storage of favorite stations.
With this application, you will never be in a rush when not necessary. You can savor your last minutes drinking a coffee knowing that it isn't until 7 more minutes that the train will come.
Never wait for trains again. Just two iPhone screen touches will put all the information you need in front of you immediately.
Bonus Feature: Zoomable, Scrollable BART Map also included!
What's New in Version 1.2.1
BART API change was causing a crash. Fixed the crash.
This version is awesome, thanks!
Thanks for fixing the bug, works great now, the wife & I are totally addicted as we have a very narrow window between dropping kids off at school & getting to work on time. We need to know whether to double-time to make the BART or not, esp as we typically barely miss the prior train by 90 seconds. This way we can tell whether its running late and we can make the earlier train if we hustle.
Data is reliable, interface is poor
It gives you reliable times, so it's worth it just for that. The biggest problem is the poorly thought-out interface. If you don't enable location services, it nags you every time to turn it on. But having it on does nothing, you'll still need to set up your stations as 'favorites'.
It should have been set up so it defaults to Favorites on startup.
App said Millbrae train would arrive in 5 minutes while I'm standing at the El Cerrito station watching the train pull in! Totally useless.
