I have been looking into developing some sample applications for Apple’s iPhone. I discovered a very nice example application that was written by a colleague of mine from TAG Worldwide. Malcolm Barclay has written a London underground Tube Status application for the iPhone.
The concept and software is very simple yet effective and provides exatly the information you require, within 2 touches. As of 9th August 2008, this application ranked number 3 in the Apple iPhone applications store and had received a massive 25,600 downloads.
As you can see, just from Malcolm’s application, there is a plenty of scope for new, simple and effective iPhone applications, in what is a very fast growing market.
Well let's see what I can knock up in the next few days and I'll keep you posted.
