ERP Search For Android Helps Minimize your Singaporean Toll Crossing Expenditures

Are you a Singapore resident who frets about spending excessive amounts of change traversing the ERP toll system? Luckily, XDA forum member poondek has the perfect application for you. Using ERP Search, users are able to plan their voyages in advance to minimize their looming toll charges.

The application allows specification of vehicle type, as well as date / time and road type. Additionally, the data is pulled directly from OneMotoring, ensuring that it is always up to date.

This app is only meant for use in Singapore (the rest of you wouldn’t want to, really) as it’s meant for the toll gantries. I’m sorry if it sounds too “exclusive”.

The toll gantries known are part of the Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) scheme formulated by the government, and have been set up at traffic choke points, yada yada yada. This app helps to check on the gantry pricing at different times of the day.

There have been numerous apps I’ve come across on the iPhone platform that does this and more, but hardly anything useful on Android. Hence, I decided to make my own, that does nothing but tell me the price, so I can plan ahead of time. I’ve found it handy for myself at times, which made me want to share it here and gain some criticisms about it at the same time.

And since this is my first attempt, please go easy on me. But I’ll gladly listen to any and all constructive feedback.

For easier selection, the gantries have been categorised into

  • Arterial
  • Expressways
  • CityCentral

Data is pulled from OneMotoring so the prices will always be accurate.

If you’re Singaporean and own an Android phone, be sure to continue on to the application thread and leave some feedback while you’re at it.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already.

Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
