    Hey fellow WP7 users,

    I'm a Velib user in Paris (For those who don't know what Velib is : it's a bike rental system throughout the city freely accessible with a credit card or a public transportation pass) and I like to let you know that some guy has developped an app for that !

    I allows you to know if the nearest, your favorite, or any station has any bikes available or parkign spots available.

    The app still needs polishing but it works quite well except when the system is down (it crashes the app unfortunately) which happened quite a lot lately (it might have to do with a webmaster on vacation :))

    For people not in Paris, a search in the marketplace points to the same app for Toulouse, France, and Bruxelles, Belgium. As a frequent traveler for business reason, I hope more apps are to come !

    Paris : Velib' Finder is there : http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=4136...c-00237de2db9e
    Toulouse : Velô Finder is there : http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=3b56...c-78e7d1fa76f8
    Bruxelles : Villo! Finder is there : http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=6276...3-6d4975018792

    Numerous apps like these exist for iOS, It's good to see that our beloved platform is catching up !!!

    Have a good ride
