Have a question?
Can I please get a update on this? It has been over a month, and I have not heard anything yet.
I want my app! I filled out the survey like 2 months ago!
What's going on with this app? There hasn't been an update in over a month.
How can I sign up as a Beta tester?
When will Boston be added? Looking forward to this and do hope inter- city travel will make it too.
How could I participate in the beta? Is TestFlight hard to install?
I responded to the survey, when should we receive the email?
Cant wait to use the app!
We can ship out XXL shirts.
What's the chance you can ship XXL shirts?
Thanks for the update on when the app will come out. Guess I won't install iOS 6 until November.
We'll have the app ready in late October/early November.
When do you think we should see the release of the app?
YAY! I was hoping it would get funded!
Congratulations. I was getting nervous for a bit there.
Fully Funded! YAY
You guys made it, congrats!
Almost there!!! Can't wait to see this fully funded
Question: If a friend and I are considering splitting a $400 pledge, can we both be beta testers as well? I know it's not one of the options, but we'd love to be able to beta test the app when it arrives.
Justin, indeed we are! OpenPlans is 100% committed to OpenStreetMap for providing the base map data that powers our routing solutions and we OSM tile sets for our web mapping applictions. Thanks to your work on the MapBox iOS SDK now we can use those same tiles on the iOS client! Thanks!
I hope you guys will consider using the MapBox iOS SDK, which is a completely open source alternative to Apple's MapKit, allows custom data sources, and also allows offline use. I'm the lead developer on it and I'm happy to help out how I can.
Guys, update us with the lasts news and whats going on with you.
We are really interested in the app.
@OpenPlans After I backed the project, I tweeted it to Leo Laporte, it may help gain extra traction (due to his podcast network). I hope it helps!
Looking forward to the Android version although I fully understand why you're prioritizing iOS 6. Thanks!
Hope you are successful and that your innovations are widely adopted. Please consider adding Washington, D.C. to your three other transit data posters. Our transit system is really quite beautiful and would make excellent wall art. Perhaps you could add some healthy inter-city competition by adding posters if a certain threshold of local backers step up.
Pledge Made , Very Cool Project / Looking forward to seeing and being a part of the success!
Dylan, Thanks for the comment. We're looking at providing regional directions for trains and buses. Much of this depends on data. For example, if we can can get the official Amtrak GTFS, it makes the process a lot easier (they share it with Google so there's hope...). Same goes for inter-city bus services.
We'll keep this on the list of things to consider.
It would be great if you could add in options for getting around metro areas. Public transportation can only get you as far as the city limits. I am not able to drive so it would be great to be able to find ways from LA to SF without the use of cars. Also it would be awesome if users could input shortcuts or routes of our own.
I don't think I've ever wanted a project to be successful this badly before. I'd pledge more if I could! Good luck!
Wow. This is a dream. Must be. Kudos for making our world that much more of a brighter place!
