On iOS App that shows the departure times of New York's buses in an attractive augmented reality view
WINNER: Best Way-Finding Application for Novice Transit Riders
WINNER: Grand Prize: Best Consumer/Transit Rider App
Our aim was to create a minimalistic application that shows departure information of public transport in New York in an attractive augmented reality view. The app can be used with a minimum of user input and provides all relevant information in a single view. Target users are commuters in New York who want to get a snapshot of the buses in the area. We are currently working on adding support for subways and trains.
An extra feature: When you point the iPhone to the sky you can see when the next rockets leave to space.
We have created a similar app for the public transport in Switzerland and it became a huge success. It received a Swiss App Award and Apple listed it as „Best of 2013“. Departures Switzerland is now pre-installed on all demonstration devices in the Swiss Apple Stores.
