TransitMaster (TM) includes the complete VTA transit feed in a mobile app database. That is, all 81 routes; 3,828 stop locations; 16,155 trips; and 731,963 stop times (from both pre and post July 11 schedules to demonstrate dynamic effective dating). It can run as a standalone application using MacOS or Windows, and opens as a database file on Windows or MacOS using FileMaker Pro or on an iPhone or iPad using FileMaker Go.

TransitMaster primarily accommodates the iPhone's portrait screen, but easily adapts to landscape and opens wider on larger screens.
This version, 0.8, has the following features:
Future updates will provide performance improvements and the ability to find stops nearest to other stops or to current GPS locations. Imminent versions will allow riders to take notes and photos related to any stop, route, or trip for personal use or sharing with friends or VTA. E.g.: TransitMaster can forward itineraries or report vandalism or information with precise stop locations and details.
This version is free, but the transit feed will be out of date soon (according to the GTFS calendar). This year's update will be free depending on development hardware costs. (I developed TransitMaster from scratch in less than 10 days of my spare time using FileMaker Pro and a borrowed iPad.)
