The Cycle Hire Widget for the Android, developed by Little Fluffy Toys, works exclusively for London’s new bike sharing program. Watch the video above to see the developers showing you how their widget works in real time.
Basically, when you tap on the widget it will show you the 3 nearest cycle hire locations and their status–bikes available and/or slots available to return a bike. The free widget uses crowdsourcing to collect its information–when at a cycle hire location, users are prompted to make a report aboutÂ bike availability.
