Just released: Indian Train Alarm for Windows Phone 8!
Just like the Android version, this app comes with a list of Indian Railway Stations, with their locations, to set the alarms. Over 2400 stations are currently listed, more stations are being continuously added, and you can also add stations on your own after downloading the app!
Now be informed when your train is about to reach a station, using the location services on your Windows Phone! No internet connection is required for the alarms to work.
The alarms may be set with a triggering radius of 5km or 25km, and will be triggered within an error margin of generally within 1/2 – 1km, depending on the accuracy of the location fix.
The Train Status app has been hit hard by changes at the train enquiry portal . The app used to fetch useful train info from trainenquiry.com which has been replaced by the new portal http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and I had to update the app, otherwise it simply would stop working. Since this new portal does not allow linking to the direct train results, a lot of functionality has been lost, with no immediate chance to recover any of it.
Thus, as of now, the fact is that you could really just bookmark the site http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and use it instead – that is, unless you would like to have the links in a familiar place along with the other features like pnr enquiry and berth & seat calc.
Here is a screenshot of the new – “crippled” – version on Android, which links to the app on Google Play
Train Status, for Indian Railways, is now available for Windows Phone!
Feature easy retrieval of live train status, offline saving of time tables, quick PNR enquiry and the unique “Berth & Seat Calc”, in a native & simple Windows Phone “Metro” style app.
