Hi all,

The current maintainers for the OneBusAway Windows Phone and Windows 8/10 apps are looking to pass the torch to the next generation of developers.

 

The Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps were both published to the App Stores, although at some point Microsoft enforced a mandatory app update, and if apps weren’t updated in time, their listings was pulled.  Unfortunately, neither of these apps were updated so they currently aren’t publicly available to download.  My impression is that the work involved to get them listed again is minimal, although the original maintainers would have more info.

 

·         Windows Phone app - https://github.com/OneBusAway/onebusaway-windows-phone

·         Windows 8 app - https://github.com/OneBusAway/onebusaway-windows8

 

There is a start on a Windows 10 app that would unify the code-base for both phones and tablet/desktop, although it’s still under development:

·         https://github.com/OneBusAway/onebusaway-windows10

 

So, if you’re interested in contributing to and possibly becoming a new maintainer for these apps, please let us know!  We’d be open to any roadmap going forward, including potentially just launching a new Windows 10 app and considering the Windows Phone and Windows 8 legacy apps at this point.

Jason,
That would be awesome!  Please let us know if you have any questions, and we can connect you to the previous maintainers.
