Train Track is an android app which lists the train schedules for the Chennai MRTS.
Note : This app was created for personal use. I have not done
extended any testing.
Also this was hacked up in a weekend (under 32 hours to be specific).
- Download TrainTrack.apk
- Install it on your android phone
- Move the files in /time directory to your sdcard
- Open the App
Just type your favourite station in the source and destination text box and click on the fav icon !
- Nexus One
- HTC Legend
- Expand list to include the other rail services as well.
- Make a companion app to include all the bus schedules
A point to note, I have used flat files instead of a db file. The reason for that was :
- I was not going to update the time schedule.
- I didn’t need any security. (It’s for my personal use)
- Creating a db helper class was too much of a hassle.
Also, This schedule includes only one track from beach → velachery and not vice versa. I will add this shortly.
1 Please free to download and use the app. Any comments, constructive or otherwise, would be welcome.
