What is next?

My plans are :

  1. To work on extending how the bookmarks work (so they can be "merged").
  2. I would like it to remember the last page displayed and re-display it when it starts (so you can check the bus time, read a book, then check the time again very easily).
Unfortunately, my laptop was stolen, so work has slowed until I get a replacement (it was insured!). I didn't lose any PDX Bus files! (Phew - I'm glad I had a backup and a remote cvs repository).

Still awesome!

There is a quirk, not really a bug, just a quirk - in the bookmarking process.

The create bookmark function is a little wonky. Sometimes I would get three bookmarks created from one stop. I am working to narrow down what causes it.

Thanks - I'll keep a look out for it too.

Hi Andrew, Cool App it's nice to try to time when the next bus will arrive on my regular route. It's great on weekends too. Does Trimet info tell when some buses are downtown only (no longer in service) That's a frustration I deal with when I'm commuting home from 6-8p.

BTW, on some of your earlier posts you mentioned thoughts on what's next and if you were thinking about other projects. A friend and I came up with a relatively simple iphone app that would be cool and wouldn't require a website. We downloaded the SDK and realized that doing this on our own was going to be a challenge. If you might be interested feel free to send me an email. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

How about adding bookmark renaming functionality?
