A user is then able to view the schedule for any date and time, with any combination of stops. While allowing to continually check for delay information, and share trip details with friends.
What separates Annadale from other NYC transit applications is that schedules are available with no internet connection. This is because Annadale maintains the schedules locally on the device making this a great tool for devices without data service or in places with poor data connection.
Many of the devices features are integrated with the application to provide the best user experience. Locational services allow user to choose the closest station, while Facebook, Twitter, email, iMessage and SMS messaging allows the user to connect with friends and share the time of arrival. Additionally, there is an added feature to set an alarm to notify when the train/ferry is approaching its arrival or destination stop.
