muni android app, watch synchronization

Mostly of interest to San Francisco residents: I wrote an Android app that scrapes nextmuni arrival times a while back. I never announced it (I think?) or published it since they officially disallow scraping, but now there's an API so I don't feel so bad.



(sorry for the mouse cursor, bad screenshot from the emulator)

My friend Joe did a truly awesome hack with muni data as well: he can pick a stop on his phone, then his bluetooth-speaking watch will display up to date arrival times. I remember thinking, "huh, neat" when I read about it on his blog, but now that I have seen it I can assure you my reaction was "AWESOME!"
