Rome2rio launches iPhone app, makes source code freely available

Published November 26, 2012

Last month we were excited to launch a new mobile web experience for Rome2rio, greatly improving the experience when visiting on a mobile device. At the recent PhoCusWright conference we went one step further, and launched the Rome2rio iPhone app.

The app provides an even more polished and responsive experience for iPhone users. Here’s what the interface looks like:


We’ve also decided to make our iPhone app source code freely available for download. Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for B2B partners to integrate the Rome2rio API into their own iPhone apps, by using our code as a reference implementation.

Give the new app a whirl, and if you like it submit a review for the app store.

EDIT: Rome2rio fan Fiach Reid has also developed the Universal Travel Search Blackberry app which is based on the Rome2rio API and available in the Blackberry App Store.

Rome2rio, based in Melbourne, Australia, is organising the world’s transport information. We offer a multi-modal, door-to-door travel search engine that returns itineraries for air, train, coach, ferry, mass transit and driving options to and from any location. Discover the possibilities at
