Indian Train Alarm for iPhone & iPad

Indian Train Alarm – now available for iPhone & iPad!

Indian Train AlarmLocation based alarms for Indian Train Stations – now available for iPhone & iPad!

Download on the App Store

Just like the Android & WP8 versions, this app comes with a list of Indian Railway Stations, with their locations, to set the alarms. Over 2500 stations are currently listed, more stations are being continuously added, and you can also add stations on your own after downloading the app!

Be informed when your train is about to reach a station, using the location services on your iPhone or iPad! No internet connection is required for the alarms to work.

The alarms may be set with a triggering radius of 10km or 25km, and will be triggered within an error margin of 1/2 – 2km depending on the accuracy of the location fix.

The app uses low battery consuming location detection provided by the latest iOS core location technologies.

Train Status – Big Letdown!

The app now only provides access to the new train enquiry portal, which does not allow deep querying like the previous portal. You could really just bookmark the site http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and use it instead, unless you are using the app for the other features like the pnr enquiry, berth calc..

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  The app used to fetch useful train info from trainenquiry.com which has been replaced by the new portal http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in and I had to update the app,  otherwise it simply would stop working.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

Running Train Status Updates – Berth & Seat Calc, Passenger Trains

Details on two recent updates for Running Train Status for Android – the Berth & Seat calc and the addition of passenger trains

Running Train Status for Android now has a simple berth & seat calc, accessible from the main screen. While checking PNR status,  it seemed that it would be nice to have an easy way to check which the displayed berths/seats are.  Just enter a berth/seat no and select the class and the berth/seat is immediately displayed.

BSC

Another major enhancement in the utility of the app would be that information on many local and passenger trains which previously were not being displayed have now been added, so that the annoying message “No matching trains found!” occurs much less often.  This is a server side update, so there is nothing new to download from the store.

With all these updates, Running Train Status is all set remain your indispensable companion while traveling Indian Railways.. Happy New Year!
