I travel about 250 miles each day by public transport - high speed train.
My train company publishes an XML feed so apps can search train delays. Their status is either green, amber (with reason) or red.
Would love to develop an app that shows:
- Small green icon for all is OK
- Amber and reason underneath.
- Red and reason underneath.
Then just putting on the glasses in the morning gives me the sort of journey i will have into work.
It would be great to have something like this that could be modified for use with other transportation feeds. Any chance you will Open Source the mod?
If not, the ability to specify an XML feed and define what text correlates to each status could work. Maybe give people the ability to load a configuration file (containing the feed and schema) so other developers could create and share different configurations and non-developers wouldn't have to try to configure it for their own train systems.
