NextVTA Updated – 1.3.1

nextvta-routes-1.3.1

I updated the NextVTA Android application to version 1.3.1. I made several improvements were made to clean up the user interface and increase usability,

  • added icons to indicate the route type (bus, light rail)
  • added route type filter to hide or show only certain route types
  • added route description (major start and end points)

Also note that the routes list now shows the route number only. The choice of direction (north, east, etc.) and period (weekdays, saturdays, etc.) are moved to the route view page. This makes the route list easier to navigate as there are fewer entries. The period is auto-selected based on the current day of week.

    Thank you for writing this very nice app!

    This isn’t showing up in Market or in Cyrket today. Have you dropped it for some reason? A new VTA schedule is out, maybe?

      yes, i removed it from the market. i have not had time to keep up with changing schedules and formats. unfortunately, each time there’s an update, i have to spend time tweaking the scripts that grab the schedules.
