SeattleBus 1.2.0 sent in for review

Seattle Bus 1.2.0 has been pushed up to the App Store for application review. This update changes out the underlying parser, allowing the application to use King County’s provided real-time data feed (http://trackerloc.kingcounty.gov/avl.jsp) instead of the one hosted by UW (http://mybus.org/metrokc/avl.jsp).

While the MyBus.org site has been responding fine for the past few weeks, we’ve now seen multiple times over the past year when their site has been down and/or unresponsive to the point of breaking the Seattle Bus application. Hopefully this will fully resolve it. A future point update may allow users to choose between real-time trackers, but that hasn’t been coded in yet and I hope won’t be necessary.

I’ll post an update when it’s past review and is available for purchase again on the iTunes AppStore.
