Taz the impression I got when I read in ST that SBS is no longer making its bus data freely available to smartphone apps developers on the ground that commuters may get the wrong info. Surprise, surprise: SBS has its own app for iPhones (not too popular it seems) and is developing one for Android phones.
I know from personal experience that developers of applications for mobile phones see the shortcomings of the bus system as an opportunity to develops apps that S’poreans will use.
So SBS is trying to kill the competition? And in the process saboing the govmin’s attempts to make S’pore a leading innovator in the smartphone apps.
A few tight slaps for SBS mgt. SBS remember that yr profits are dependent on govmin largesse. Saboing govmin is like biting the hand that feeds you.
