Steam Trains - Arriving at an iPhone Now

Newton-le-Willows,  GB   Feb 28, 2012 in Entertainment


Kerner Applications introduces Steam Trains, a collection of preserved, heritage locomotive photographs, perfectly sized and optimised the iPhone and iPhone Retina display, is now available on the App Store. The heritage railway scene in the UK is bigger than most people realise - frequent railtours, preserved lines and locomotives make it a classic hobby and a great day out. With 'Steam Trains', you can style your iPhone with one of the photographs of the UK's preserved heritage locomotives.


[] Newton-le-Willows, United Kingdom - Kerner Applications is pleased to introduce Steam Trains 1.0 and Steam Trains HD 1.0. Featuring a number of classic locomotives, such as recently built 'Tornado', British Railways 'Brittania' as well as earlier examples from the original 'big four' locomotive companies - 'London North Eastern Railways', 'Southern Railways', 'Great Western Railway' and the 'London, Midland and Scottish Railway'.

"These images look great on your phone, and work equally well for lock screen or wallpaper images - even if trains aren't you're thing, if you've got kids, especially boys, I'm sure they'll look looking through the image collection.", commented Jason Kerner, Lead Developer at Kerner Applications.

All the images are bundled with the application itself, so there is no need for a data connection to download them - you can swap and change as you like. The application features over 70 images from all over the UK, perfectly capturing the favourite past time. For those who live outside the United Kingdom, its an opportunity for rail enthusiasts around the World to see and store images of locomotives that might never have seen.

Available for just 69p (GBP), $0.99 (USD), the application is available on the App Store today and has already sold well in a wide number of different App Store locales already. An iPad version is coming soon, 'Steam Trains HD', which features images not available on the iPhone version, and a re-designed interface making it easier in both portrait and landscape view on the iPad.
