Writes developer Alex:
I got so frustrated having to look up my train schedules on my Blackberry’s mobile browser that I decided to make my own application to solve this problem. NYC Transit gives people their train, bus, and ferry schedules to get in and out of NYC (Metro North, NJ Transit train and bus, and NY Waterway ferry).
The app costs $4.95, can be deployed on any Blackberry with an OS 4.2 or higher, and can be found on Blackberry’s App World under the travel category, or at www.getnyctransit.com.
In terms of the iPhone, our blogging brethren StationStops has done a brisk business with his Metro-North app. It sells for $5.99 and is described thusly:
StationStops is an iPhone Application which allows to riders check the regular schedule for trains coming into and out of Grand Central, *with or without an internet connection.*
