I’ve just pushed out a new version of my latest Android app: Isle of Man Travel Intelligence. It started off like an older app I had written, showing arrivals and departures from the Isle of Man airport. I’ve now added arrivals and departures at the Sea Terminal too.
It’s been an interesting journey. I’ve had to learn all about Google App Engine, coding in Python, a lovely scraper engine called Beautiful Soup, Python models and memcache and a whole host of other things. And that was just for the back-end! It’s been quite satisfying really and I’m looking forward to getting some feedback to see how I can improve things.
So, if you have an Android phone, give it a try, let me know what you think: Isle of Man Travel Intelligence
(p.s. no, it doesn’t do trains .. yet)
