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
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.

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
