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.
