An Android App that scrapes public transport information (times/connections) and shows it on your Android.

Scrapes public transport information from the official transport authority web site (times, stations, connections) and displays it conveniently on your device.

This application is about utility, it has an spartan interface, no bells. no whistles, no google maps or GPS required. It is designed after my own requirements:
- show me vehicle arrival times
- show me my connections at the next station

Required permissions:
- internet access - the time are obtained from http://www.ratt.ro/txt
- sd-card write - a cache with transport line and station information is saved on the external storage.
