Getting to and from Staten Island has never been easier as you can use this next app in order to access the train and ferry schedule. The Annadale app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and provides users with the complete schedule with arrival and departure times. Whether you are a regular commuter or a tourist this app can certainly make transportation a whole lot smoother and prevents you from needing to download multiple apps.
Instead of having separate apps for the ferry and train information regarding Staten Island why not download the Annadale app and get everything you need in one spot. It's here you'll find the complete schedule for the Staten Island Railway and the Staten Island Ferry complete with information such as planned work, delays, and service changes. What's great is that the app doesn't require an Internet connection to access the schedule and all schedules are supported: holiday, weekend, and weekday. Even if you aren't looking for the current day's schedule you can also plan ahead and check any date's schedule.
The app hasn't been updated in over two years with the last update including one for customers whenever the MTA servers aren't working. The app has four out of five stars from users yet the comments are a bit more mixed. It seems as though the schedules may not be up-to-date at all times, which is of course a pretty big part of the app.
There is no need for an Internet connection in order to view the schedule

The app even has a social aspect to it that makes it possible to tweet to your friends if there is a delay and you can share you actual trip information by Facebook, Twitter, email, and SMS. As soon as you open the app you'll be able to view all the current information on the closest station. While the user interface is rather bland looking it still gets the job done and is at least quick to navigate.
