Hello all,

I just wanted to talk to you about a community project that is really growing fast and will become something huge soon! We really need the help of the xda community to make it available everywhere. So please take the time to read, forgive my english knowledge and typos and contact me to have more infos.

iRail.be is an attempt to make transportation time schedules easily available for anyone. We are doing this by creating an Application Programming Interface. This interface is implemented in PHP and can be reused by various of other projects.

Our main site consists of a very easy mobile website to look up time schedules using our own API.

I think that we all have smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, WebOS, Bada) to get real time information.

One topic that should interest everyone is public transport, because while waiting for a train, subway, bus, you have your phone in your hand and you wonder “When will my vehicle arrive?”

Sometimes, you have some electronic panels on the station, but most of the time, these panels does not provide info you need or you are not at the station.

You can find more information here.

Want something on the XDA Portal? Send us a tip!

Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
