Since we announced TransHub Sydney there’s been a few articles popping up around the place. Thought it’d be a good time to put the ones we know about in one place.
TechAU interviewed John at Teched Australia about TransHub and posted an article the day TranHub went live on the marketplace – TransHub taps Gov Data to Minimise Multi-Mode Commute Times
WPCentral did a write-up about the app just after TransHub hit the marketplace: TransHub lands down under in the Marketplace
1800 pocket pc did an article on the spotlight finalists: Apps from Spotlight 2011
It includes a brief video interview we did at Teched Australia
We made it into the app list on cnet : http://www.cnet.com.au/friday-app-wrap_p2-339306461.htm
Yesterday, the MVP team posted about TransHub on their blog: MVP’s Windows Phone 7 App Wins Top Honors – and Helps Ease Public Commute in Sydney
Today, TransHub was featured on in the ALM Conference newsletter and the venue page. So if you’re interested in this great event exploring Visual Studio and Application Lifecycle Management and how it can reduce costs, development time etc. register for the event here.
If anyone else spots any others please let us know!
We released a sneak peak on our upcoming Windows Phone 7 application TransHub to facebook earlier in the week and were overwhelmed with a few common questions we thought would be best answered here so everyone can benefit. It’s been great to see interest in the application and we’ve had lots of offers from people to help beta test etc. so thank you all very much for your support.
What is TransHub?
TransHub provides personalised, reliable public transport planning as a Windows Phone 7 application. Transhub removes the hassle of confusing timetables and frustrating journey planning for Sydney public transport. By combining state of the art travel planning, up to date timetables and full personalisation, Transhub saves you time by providing the most accurate and quickest routes (by bus, train, and/or ferry) to your destination in a matter of seconds. With an activated GPS, Transhub will update your map showing you where you are and where you need to take the next step of your trip.
For those who want to get a feel for what the application looks like here’s some screen grabs from the application. We’ve taken screen shots with the black theme but it also looks great in the white theme.
When will it be available?
We’ve submitted the application to the marketplace for certification and expect it to be live in the next few days. As it was the first release and was on a strict deadline for the Spotlight program we didn’t get all the features in we really wanted so we’re already preparing an updated version fixing a few issues our beta testers have identified and adding a bunch of extra feature to improve the overall application experience.
Is it available for other cities?
At this stage we are aiming the initial releases at Sydney, so we can road test it on an audience and make some improvements you want to see. We have plans to expand to other cities in the future if the application is successful, so stay tuned for a TransHub near you.
How can I ask for features that I want?
At the moment the best way for bug reports, feature requests or general questions is to drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org but we’re looking at setting up systems for feature requests, and voting on features and changes soon.
