As of this afternoon, the University of Oxford is a member of the iPhone Developer programme which can help facilitate the production and distribution of applications to potential developers within the organisation (and to the app store). If you are a member of the University and would like to submit an app to the app store or require provisioning to allow testing on your devices, please drop a line to erewhon at oucs.ox.ac.uk
A quick post to note that National Rail has released an application for the iPhone/iPod Touch which allows for comprehensive live train departure boards and journey planning. Head over to: http://nationalrail.co.uk/iphone/ for more information and a demo.
It’s probably the most comprehensive mobile transport application in the UK and is certainly a welcome replacement for the now missing Kizoom MyRail Lite which strangely disappeared from the Apple App Store some time ago.
A quick post to say that OUCS is planning an iPhone developer ‘boot camp’ on Friday, 1st of May 2009 which will be open to University of Oxford staff and students. The lecture series will be run by Paul Burford from Apple World Wide Developer Relations and be hosted within Oxford University Computing Services.
