These 3 pictures show the (classic) route list, detailed route description and stop list.
More interesting, the 4th one shows a route from the phone's location, using the integrated GPS on the iPhone or the location technology available on the iPod. This feature will be available in the (about) 20 cities for which we have geographic coordinates for a significant number of stops.
And on the 5th one, you can see detailed information for a stop, with an optional map (again, if coordinates are available for the selected stop) A network connection will be required for this, since it simply uses Google Maps.
Features that are still missing include:
- Link to the address book. And since I can't find "custom" fields on the iPhone application, it may be a pain to use.
- Stop selection assistance, such as "auto-fill", suggestion lists or even a history of the last stops used. I just don't know how to implement these...
Now, I'm a bit nervous about releasing this just like that. I think it still needs a bit of testing and I'll try to spend some time on that, maybe with the help of a few users who have contacted me before. Anyway, there are chances that MetrO will be available on the AppStore soon!
