August 10, 2010: Brayne Trainz: Metro-North v1.0, by Braynesoft LLC, was released today on Apple's iTunes Store.
Brayne Trainz: Metro-North is a powerful train timetable application for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. It comes complete with the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven train timetables built in, so the data is always at your finger tips. Updates will be provided as the new schedules are made available from Metro-North.
There are a few train schedule applications available for the iPhone devices today, but Brayne Trainz: Metro-North has distanced itself from the pack by providing a unique, powerful, and simple to use interface. It's simplicity and power relies on a picker wheel where the commuter spins the from/to station wheels to see all available departure/arrival times for the selected trip. Brayne Trainz was designed with the hardcore commuter in mind. The individuals who need an easy-to-use tool to quickly find the next train to NYC, or to head back home at the end of a long day, without wrestling with the paper schedule; Stow Away Your Paper Schedules! is the tag line for this application, as the creators don't suggest you throw away your paper schedules - paper doesn't run out of battery power.
Some of the many easy-to-use features include storing favorites trips, eMailing trip details, a reverse trip button, ability to select next train closest to current time, and display transfers/connections. The application also includes a links feature that includes, among other alert web sites, the Big Board URL to find your departing train's track number from Grand Central Terminal.
