Singapore Bus Time Widget v 1.4.7 for Winmo
XDA forum member afoongwl215 couldn’t find a bus time arrival widget for windows mobile in the MarketPlace so he has developed one himself.
The widget provides a quick check on bus arrival times in Singapore rather than having to fire up your browser. It queries and parses the bus times from two websites, but the benefit is that you don’t need to pinch and zoom to read the times. Just click on a stop name and add as a bookmark.
Requires the Widget Engine to be installed on your rom. Confirmed to be working on HTC HD2. Planned features include favourites (routes) and road name search.
For more information and to download the widget, check out the application thread.
