iPhone Oyster hack for London
Live in London? Use the tube and buses? Then you've got an Oyster card. There's an experiment at the moment to integrate them with phones and Nokia are trying it out with a pilot.
Here's the rashbre central unofficial pilot for iPhone users, but it works fine for other phone makes too.
The iPhone is great. It looks fabulous but in regular use its a bit slippy. So I bought a 'tight fittlng rubberised case' from incase.. Oooh, I hear you cry.
So as an experiment, I've added extra functionality to the phone by inserting my Oyster card into the case before putting it around the phone.
Then simply wave the phone by the Oyster touch-points.
Works brilliantly and makes me smile.
