BART V3.5 for Android & iOS

Good Morning All,

The Newest version of BART, Version 3.5 for Android and iOS has now been released.

Availability is the newest feature to join the BART suite, BART now includes an Availability Roster allowing users to provide and share this information amongst users. This also integrates into the attendee list showing members current availability status.

Offline functionality has now been added to allow for retrieval of the last 20 messages even without an internet connection. What this means is after loading your recent messages and maps, you can leave your internet connection behind and still see the information you had.

Continuous scrolling now allows for unlimited messages to be displayed in BART. once you reach the bottom of the first 20 messages, the next 20 will be loaded. This will allow a greater number of messages to be retrieved through BART.

We’ve also released the Android update a lot closer to the iOS release to get everyone on the same page quicker. Thanks for your continued support, and watch out for new updates here!

Station Platform Home Location Fix

Good Morning All,

We’ve recently had a huge influx of enquiries about the BART Station Platform. Being a new addition to the BART Suite there’s obviously still things to work out and improvements to be made.

Many have asked us how to set the home location. Presently if you’re accessing the Station Platform on a device without GPS, it will pick up the address from the origin of your ISP.

We’re working on a way to be able to manually set your station location, however in the meantime one of the boys from Wonga Park CFA was nice enough to give us a work around.

Using Google Chrome you can download a web app called Manual Geolocation here

This will install an icon to the right of your address bar which will allow you to manually overwrite your present location.

Thanks for your feedback and watch out for new updates here.

BART Version 3.4 for iOS

This new Version of BART for iOS welcomes an exciting new feature. Introducing ‘Public Feeds’, now through BART as well as receiving your pager messages, you will also be able to see what is happening in your area without having to switch apps. BART will automatically display the relevant warning information for your region with the ability to manually select the region you’re after if needed.

Main Features:
- Attendance Timing
- Public CFA Feed List & Map Markers
- Automatically detects Regions for public feed
- Manual Region selection available
- Reversed next and previous buttons
- Fixed text overlap on Pager list

Main fixes for this release include the much requested text overlap issue and the reversal of the next and previous buttons. We’re always looking for ways to improve the system to make it easier for everyone to use.

Hope you all enjoy the great new features, thanks for all your great feedback.

BART Station Display now available!

There have been a lot of interest and many requests for a Station Platform/Display Version for BART.

People were looking for a version that would be able to easily display Attendance information station side, and update automatically when somebody hits attend or decline.

Something that would work on almost any platform, display responses that can be seen ‘at a glance’ and be able to be displayed on a wall mounted screen on other station platform.

Well your asking paid off, here it is!
Check out the BART Station Platform Here!

Please note this is a first look and is still in testing, there may be some bugs we’ve not yet discovered, your existing usernames and passwords will work, please give it a go and tell us what you think!

And as always, thank you for your great feedback and letters of support, keep them coming.
