BARTsmart 0.7.5 Underway

BARTsmart version 0.7.5 is underway. Expect a release by week's end. This will add the most-requested feature, a reverse route button on the widget's front face.

There's also been increasing demand for a windows or browser-based widget. These are coming soon!

Site Updated!

I finally updated the WoodWare site with a BARTsmart Mailing List. I also redesigned the site slightly to be more space efficient. Please click a google ad to help support the site and widget!

Next up, BART Widget updates!

BARTsmart Site Updates

Updates to the BARTsmart site are underway. Expect a simplified layout and mailing list features to go live later this week. Once these features are live, I plan to update the widget with two new top-requested features:
* Reverse route button on widget's front
* Route presets, to save your favorite routes

BARTsmart version 0.7.5 will be released to include the front-face reverse button as well as support for routes with multiple transfers. Version 0.8.0 will be release later and will include then new preset functions. Eventually I'll also add the ability to browse future train schedules. This is more of a widget interface challenge rather than a technical challenge.

Welcome BART Widget users!

I'm starting a blog to document the development process of my BARTsmart BART Widget. This way, users can follow along as I upgrade the widget and the WoodWare site. Please leave comments and feedback, as you can actually shape the direction of this awesome, free product!

In the meantime, go download the BARTsmart BART Widget. It is the best BART Widget for Max OS X's Dashboard. Improvements are coming soon as are versions for other platforms.
