A Boris Bike Widget

Unfortunately I’m a few thousand miles away from trying this app but I do have my access key!

Last week London finally got its bike hire scheme something that just cries out for a location aware real time application to help users.

So just in time Little Fluffy Toys have released their widget for Android phones that no only tells you where the closest hire point is, but also updates the number of bikes available in real time.

This is neat is so many ways, making use of location – tick, using a government data feed  – tick, crowdsourcing of location status – tick.

Can’t wait to try this out when I get home !
