HINY is a free Siri-ish app that tells you NYC MTA Service Status
Rochester, New York – For iPhone owners who live in New York City area, or just travel there, HINY is a welcome tool that will help them navigate the mass transit options. NoTie.NET created HINY in response to the MTA’s AppQuest Challenge and is making it completely free to download and use.
If you like Siri, and live in or travel to New York City, you will love HINY. HINY literally tells you the MTA Service Status for Subways, Busses, Rail and Bridges. HINY goes a step further than Siri, as users can select a Male, Female or Robot voice. Dozens of service lines are selectable and the status for each is displayed and spoken out loud.
HINY is voiceover friendly, making it great for the visually impaired. HINY is also great for commuters with their eyes on the road or more important things.
The timing is perfect, as Apple is preparing to unveil their flagship Grand Central Terminal retail store. Now users can walk out with their iPhone, download HINY for free, and know what the status is of all MTA services instantly!
Voting is open now through December 21st and users are asked to vote early and often (yes, the MTA allows and even encourages one vote per day.)
