All of our team members use Swiss' public transport system on a daily basis - for years. Therefore we experienced a lot (of crazy shit) in trains and buses and we also know the struggle of many commuters: Everyone hates waiting at bus stops or in train stations! Especially for late risers - like us - it is crucial to get reliable data about transport connections in order to maximise their sleeping duration while still catching the bus or train.
What it does
Our mobile app solves this problem with a straighforward approach. After a short configuration of the user's most important transport connection and travel times, the app pushes a reminder to the notifications telling the user when he should leave in order to catch the train or bus.
How we built it
The app is built with android studio and the SBB API.
Challenges we ran into
Bugs, bugs and more bugs.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works - kind of. EDIT: always!
What we learned
Always setup your development environment before a hackathon. Quite obvious for most people.
