[App][0.72][17.09.10][W|Q|VGA] mobileConnections - "Deutsche Bahn" Application

Hey there,

I have been on XDA-Devs quite a while now, and allways loved all the goods stuff on here! So i thought it was time to give a little bit back, and I started to develope an application to look up Train connections. I am starting with the "Deutsche Bahn" and connected companies, but I am willed to expand the tool to other Companies / Countries if someone might give me a hint what service the other Companies use.

I tought there is an real need for an application like this, because the "Bahn" themselves only support the Iphone, and I allways felt so left out with my brilliant phone. So that's going to change soon!

The App is using the brilliant Sense SDK 1.39 and will be completely fingerfriendly!

i would love to beta test your app as well...and maybe would be good to expand on germanys closest neighbours like france, poland, belgium, holland :), as i travel from time to time in europe by train, i know how good to have an up to date info especialy if you do not speak much of an local language :)

in uk we have few nice apps which pulls data from rail network but they are not great in being finger friendly...

I could have used this last month when I went to Germany. With no German, I had to resort to google maps just to make sure I didn't hop on the wrong train!

Hi brandi,

there is a java application called DB Railnavigator (mobile.bahn.de).
I tried to use it on my HD2. It was working,
but it was almost unusable due to its crappy interface :rolleyes:.
I would be very happy if you could develop something better than
that, maybe with a cache to be able to use it offline for connections
which have been already retrieved.

(I travel a lot by bus and train and would like to do beta testing :))

Sounds like a great idea!
Actually the danish "rejseplanen" seems to let you search for both bus and train in all of Europe, so maybe it would be easy to use that one. I have never used it, but maybe it'll help you.
It's here: http://euspirit.rejseplanen.dk/bin/query.exe/dn? (In the german version)

Hi, that is the Same Engine as the German Bahn uses.
I still search Beta Testers, and I will send first beta sources soon!

I have been able to extract the Ajax API of the Bahn now, and their, a little weird system :D

It is still a long way to go before this gets really good, and a lot of errors are not handled so far.

Yes, I have used that Java Application too, and hated it so much! That was the main reason for starting this!

Yes, that is a problem with the ManilaSDK... I am working on that, but it could take a while. sorry for that!

Update: I managed to extract more Variables of the Bahn API and added further functions.
