Now that's jolly useful
The ever-excellent and exhaustive Diamond Geezer alerts us to a new TfL service which puts these displays online.
Now if I can get that one working on my mobile, tharral be a cracker.
Nice to be able to write about something positive for once.
If you've got a smartphone, as soon as it's available online, someone'll start work on an app for it!
Probably the guy whose already got a London Bus app (it currently just reads from the database of timetables).
Not as sexy as the full monty with the panning interactive maps an' all, but a decided improvement on a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Whether a dedicated app for Nokia (Symbian OS) is in the offing remains to be seen. All the effort seems be going into iPhone and Android. I have a feeling my next phone may not be a Nokia, which is shame because they've served me well for the last 12 - 13 years.
