[prMac.com] Leamington Spa, UK - Kuamka Ltd announces the release of Trainwise 1.0.1 for the iOS platform. Have you ever been on a train and had that momentary feeling of panic that you had missed your stop? Have you ever fallen asleep and actually missed your stop? Us too; that's why we created Trainwise, your helpful train journey companion.
Trainwise is ideal for:
* Sleepy commuters
* Tourists or visitors who are unfamiliar with their destination
* Anyone who needs a few minutes warning before their stop to pack up and get organized
Simply choose your destination station and Trainwise will keep track of your progress. If you fall asleep, it will wake you up just before your stop. Trainwise works when you are using other apps or your phone is locked, and it only uses GPS for the last few miles of your journey, so it doesn't run your battery down.
* Includes all UK main line stations
* Quick station selection - two taps and you're done
* Distance to destination display
* Snooze mode
* Low power usage
* Support for three-letter station codes
New in version 1.0.1:

* Increased number of recent destinations from 5 to 7
* Improved behaviour when GPS or cell location accuracy is poor
* Other minor bug fixes
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 1.0 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Trainwise 1.0.1 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Travel category.
Kuamka is Swahili for 'wake up'. After 20 years in various software development and management roles, Kuamka founder Steve Baxter concluded that far too many software products suffered from terrible design. Sometimes this was because the business people and software engineers were talking different languages. Sometimes it was because the software team didn't really understand enough about the problem they were really trying to solve. In many cases it was both. Steve started Kuamka to try and make a small difference. He has worked with software teams in both large and small organizations to help them improve the way they design and build software. He has worked with management teams to help them understand software engineers, and get the most out of their engineering teams. He has also built one or two small products of his own along the way.
