The mobile application for the belgian train users.
What is BeTrains for iPhone?
BeTrains defines itself as “A handy mobile application for the belgian train users. It lets you plan your trips very quickly and makes it possible to share messages with other users for a happy travel.”
BeTrains is available for free on the Appstore
BeTrains iPhone is developed by Louis de Decker
The iPhone application has two main features: "Chat" and "Route planner"
The Chat gives the opportunity to the users to leave messages on any subject and attach it to a specific train or station. A picture and precise geolocalisation can be attached to each message.
What the users will do with the Chat is up to them: announce an event on a train or station, tell what goes through their mind, share a funny picture, even meet their soulmate ... our only concern if for them to have fun while travelling !
The Route planner
is a simple and efficient tool to plan your train trips. Simply select your departure and arrival station, eventually your departure or arrival time, and the application returns you the possible available trains.
The data used by the Route planner are provided by an API (Application Programming Interface) provided by the iRail team
As new features are added to the iRail API, the iPhone application will progressively integrate them through periodic updates.
As a conclusion, the application focuses on simplicity and efficiency.
