Public Tube: - London Undeground
This is my first Sencha Touch web app, Public Tube: -
A simple web app which displays the London Underground live tube status, predicted weekend status and a tubemap.
Hope you like it,

Hi flyingmachete, this is a simple good start .
Keep it up and your application will grow always better

Now if the tube posted data to show the trains on the map ... that'd be sweet.

Thanks for all the comments!
That is a very neat idea, make a svg of the tube map or an imagemap maybe? One to think about anyway
Right now, parsing the train departure boards, station and line feed data from TFL (which btw are a complete mess) and then add them to the web app

Just updated the web app: -
Layout changes and introduced live departure boards (basic but functional at the moment).
Next step will be to give detailed departure for specific station on a tube line, which will require some thought about how to implement it.
Cheers and hope you like it

Looks great. I'm not in London right now but have lived / consulted there in the past - and this will eventually be a great app to have as there's nothing worse the running to the station to find out a line's backed up - or broken.

I've just updated - the user can now search for train information at a specific station.
Version 1.95 - Detailed Train prediction
Version 1.75 - Summary Train prediction
Will better implement the form validation, try to add zooming on the tubemap and then will call it a day on this web app!

fantastic job :-)
how do you retrieve the data?

Follow the link to the site below: -
Select the feed data that you want and fill out the form, TFL will review your application and respond within 48 hours.
N.B. The feed data is sent back in XML, so you might want to convert to JSON (what I do is use cURL to get the feed data, then simpleXML and then json encode it, all via php
Hope that helps?
