    Hi,

    I am new to the forums,

    Just wondering does anyone know if the National Rail will come to the HTC Magic?
    Example here:
    National Rail Enquiries - iPhone Application


    Ive looked at other apps but none of them have the live GPS of the train, whats very handy!

    Thanks

    Welcome to the AF Forums and enjoy your visits !! :cool:

    I use the web on my phone for commuter and metro live tracking in the Wash. DC area. Not specific app needed .. Most any app is going to be using the web data anyway ...

    I just asked them about it here (select iPhone app in the dropdown)
    National Rail Enquiries - Feedback & Complaints

    The more people that request it, the more likely they will develop it.

    Literally minutes after asking I received this response..


    Thank you for your eMail.
    I can confirm an Android App is currently in development however we do not yet have a timescale for completion of this.
    Please be assured that we will endeavour to make this available as soon as possible.

    I just tried national railer, it's decent! Loads of bugs but it works! I'll check on my next train journey if it actually is accurate. Also this app is being worked on so it should improve over time. Also, I await the national rail app. Would be so helpful!
