What’s hotter than a subway platform in July? The Next Train Girls.

July 15, 2010 – New York City, NY — Next Train NYC, the first of several train schedule apps planned for major cities by DLP Mobile (http://www.dlpmobile.com), will be featured at New York City’s Union Square on July 15, 2010 from 4 to 7 p.m. The Next Train Girls, as they are called, promise to put on quite a show, while also demonstrating “NYC’s most useful app.”
Next Train NYC displays an approximate countdown to when your train is scheduled to arrive at the nearest subway station. Its accuracy is unrivaled, thanks to its complex thirty-day average stop-time algorithm. The new app will work with any iPhone and Android handset.
The Girls plan to dress appropriately for the scorching hot weather, and are excited to demonstrate an app that they say they believe in. “I took the gig in part because I think this app is really useful,” said one of the models. “As a New Yorker myself, I’d rather wait above ground for my train than underground – especially given the weather we’ve been having.”
Unlike similar apps, Next Train NYC works completely offline, so you can use the app underground on the platform.
The techies at DLP Mobile who made the app agree with the Girls.
“We’re very proud of Next Train NYC, because we know how frustrating it can be to wait for a train without knowing how long you will be there. We’re thrilled that Next Train NYC will help New Yorkers, as well as tourists, reduce the time they spend underground,” said Zak Tanjeloff, founder of DLP Mobile.
