App of the day: TripView

If you're in Sydney, and you rely on public transport, TripView is a must-buy

For some poeple, it may be as simple as looking up the time on a printed timetable at the bus stop or the notice boards at the train station. But if you've got a smartphone (iPhone or Android), then TripView offers a more convenient and, better laid out way of displaying current public transport info.

You can look up the stop or station at your current location (bus stop or station) and get an accurate time for the next bus or train, as well as info ones that just came past. It's easy to select routes and destinations, and not only does it show the time the transport will arrive, but also when you should expect to get to your destination. With Sydney's traffic, that's pretty much up to God though.

You can save your most frequent trips and refer to them in a few simple taps of screen, and you can even look up map routes so that you can be sure you're going the right way. For only $2.99, it's an indispensible app for a Sydneysider. I spent too long using the free version TripView Lite, which is great, but it doesn't allow trips to be saved. Glad i ponied over the cash for the full version.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
