A bit behind everyone else…
But the EasyBoris page for simple phones now uses the live data feed.
We are displaying the page display time and time that the TFL feed was updated. This does show that the feed is not updated as regularly as we might hope. Sample from today:
Page refreshed: Sat 10:08:00
TFL last update: Sat 10:01:21
Because we go direct to the live feed for every user, this information is as up-to-date as we can possible make it. Most other apps cache the feed.
Other feature we have implemented is if a station is ‘locked’ it will show as a black icon. This is in the feed and we have all seen it in the real world. I will be interested to see if the feed actually reflects this correctly.
