Pronto Treno iPhone App
September 22nd, 2009
Trenitalia recently launched their newest mobile app: ProntoTreno. This iPhone App is powered by Promptu System's innovative voice recognition system, and allows users to quickly locate trains and stations simply by talking. ProntoTreno enables users to view train schedules, buy tickets and update bookings by phone, and it provides up-to-the-minute schedule info on thousands of trains.
The Good Dog team was responsible for the user experience design - we worked with the team at Promptu to port the feature set of an existing Blackberry Application to the iPhone platform. Along the way, we took advantage of the unique interaction opportunities available on the iPhone to create a seamless user experience. Once the wireframes were complete, we jumped over to visual design and created a modern look and feel to compliment the app's feature set.
Within three days of launching, ProntoTreno has been downloaded over 15,000 times and is the#1 free app on the Italian iTunes store. Its average rating is over 4 stars, and we're really pleased to see all the positive reviews.
We appreciate the teams' hard work on this app and send a special thanks to Scott Maddux at Promptu for guiding this project from concept to completion.
