iCaltrain: Caltrain 2009
Many of us were recently unemployed, the casualty of cutbacks because of the economy or so we like to think, just to keep our confidence high in our skills and experience. That’s how neurotic at least I can be. In any case, we all pressed on looking for opportunities in a fierce job market, even expanding our commuter comfort zones to almost unrealistic proportions. Interview after interview took us to areas that we’ve never worked in before, especially in the South Bay, which is how we all came into first using iCaltrain: Caltrain 2009. Now updated, the app still provides reliable schedules, ticket prices, and zone info, while saving the most recent stations that you have used, even offline, in a very understandable interface. Furthermore, quick access to the next two trains, return trip info, and a multi-touch system map helps figure out when and where you will be, especially in a tight schedule. Just as highly recommended for the daily commuter as it is for the Caltrain virgins out there. Price: $1.99.
