OneBusAway iPhone App Updated

I'm happy to announce that we've released an update to the OneBusAway iPhone application.

What's new?
  • Support for service alerts - details about detours, cancellations, and other service changes.
  • Better route and trip maps.
You can grab the app here. Hopefully the update will go smoothly for you, but let us know if you have any issues.

The primary change is one that you hopefully won't see any time soon. As we hinted in our discussion of the most recent snow storm here in the Puget Sound region, we've had some changes in the works to make it easier to show you information about reroutes, cancellations, and other service changes. You can see a demo video of service alerts in action below:

Another minor change we made is a tweak to the map display of routes and trips. We now show the full route path, not just stops, for routes and trips (only on iOS 4.x devices):

Thanks to all our beta-testers for their feedback on the app. We appreciate your feedback too, so let us know what you think of the new app.
