KevNav Released

I have released a brand new application for RISC OS called KevNav a UK route finder.

KevNav gets the shortest allowable route between 2 UK post codes for either small private motor vehicles e.g small van car or motorcycle and push bikes. You have a choice of Imperial or Metric measurements.

By entering the from and to post codes the application will then give a route with the distance and approximate time it will take to get there. The route can be saved as either plain text, HTML or KML file formats. If an application that can display KML files has been seen by the filer like for example the excellent RiscOSM than a map option can be selected.

It requires a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from the Transport API site, as used by both of my TrainTimes and BusTimes applictions.

There is a short YouTube video of it in action for your viewing pleasure.

If you find this or any other of my applications useful why not purchase some of my merchandise or donate some money to me through my Ko-Fi pages.

I have a couple of ideas for upgrades but I want to see how this holds at the moment.

My application for RISC OS to create Qr Codes QrCode has been updated to version 2.02

Their is no new features in this version the upgrade is to fix either a change in wget or the Qr Code Generator site, which sication from working.

The Time Zone On Your Computer Is

The answer to what it should be is one of the updates to my time zone information application for RISC OS called TimeZones.

One of the updates is addition of a new button which when pressed will get your time zone based on your IP address. The other update is a cosmetic change in which if a time difference is not a complete hour then the minutes will be displayed instead of a decimal fraction e.g 1:30 Hour instead of 1.5 Hour.

TimeZones does require a working internet connection and wget to work with the data coming from the World Time API site.

I have also uploaded a short YouTube video of the new features in action.

On the train timetable window if Nominatim has been seen the clicking the Adjust mouse button (the right hand button) will open up a menu giving you a choice to either goto the station’s website through the National Rail Enquires web site or view a map of the station as above. If Nominatim has not been seen the you go straight to the station’s website.
