Commuter - Live public transport door-to-door (GB)

Developed by: 
App charge: 

Commuter plans real-time door to door public transport journeys and enables you to compare routes using live itinerary times based on how services are running. 

Itineraries show services constantly updated with live data as you travel, detailed maps, warnings and disruption impacts. Your itinerary is displayed within the context of other realtime departing services and allows you to alter your chosen services as you travel complex routes. 

Your journey searches are added to a home screen list to which you can add or remove entries, and customise place names.

Commuter also monitors your movement within the App and infers your travel patterns. Using this knowledge it optimises performance and when it gets to know your commute, or other travel behaviours, it will predict and prompt you to take public transport and present you with route options. This is done locally on your device, not shared over the network.

Commuter uses transport data that is downloaded to your device and stored. This downloaded information is used to speed up results and minimise bandwidth usage.

  1. 46.6% of UK citizens who own a smartphone use android - approaching double that of ios.
  2. Yet this site seems ONLY to offer ios apps
  3. As the UK GOVERNMENT who exist and are funded by UK taxpayers, support the majority!

Favouring one company over others

It looks like clear partiality that this app is only supplied for Apple platform. Surely this breaks rules about not showing favour? I don't have an iPhone. But I'm entitled to have access to this public data.

Give them a chance

As a technician i have experence with programming and have designed a few of my own apps, how ever it takes time for apps to be developed (6-12 months), and it can be easer to develop in IOS. it can then be tested, after testing the app for a while (Fearther 6-12 months or longer), and the test results are good, then they can start developing on the much harder to code platforms. by the way the app was created on the 20/03/2012 and for what the app is required to do, i dont think it has been fully tested yet. Plus as it says above, the app is not created by DATA.GOV.UK and was created by an indervidual wishing to help out. so please bear that in mind when having go.
