dublinbiker iPhone site launched

A very cool bike rental scheme was launched in Dublin, Ireland this month, called dublinbikes.ie.  The one problem I have with it is that their website makes it very difficult to find a station that has bikes available when using a mobile browser.dublinbiker_screenshot

So, over a few hours last Wednesday I threw together a website, http://www.dublinbiker.com, which shows all the bike stations and how many bikes are available at each.  If you’re using a phone that has GeoLocation capabilities, it can also tell you what station is closest to you.  Clicking (or tapping) any of the stations will give you directions from wherever you are to that station.

I’ve also put a entry in my applications page at ChofterApps.

Have fun using it!
