With the iPhone just months away from being released in New Zealand, I’ve done a quick test of the Carpool New Zealand website, http://www.carpoolnz.org, and, surprisingly, the more-than-three-year-old interface seems to hold up pretty well on the little screen. See image:

Carpool NZ in iPhone

I’m interested to know how many users in New Zealand, A, already have iPhones and, B, are likely to make use of a carpooling website with an iPhone in the near future.

I can see it would be nice to rework the interface for the iPhone to make information easier to access and perhaps easier to read.

I am curious to know through the comments on this site who carpools or has considered doing so. I’m interested to know also what people’s thoughts are regarding safety, privacy etc when using a website like Carpool New Zealand. What would you like to see changed there to make it easier to use?

I just received the following email from Rose Hobden of LTNZ in relation to the Carpool NZ website. I don’t really see how it will affect carpooling but perhaps I am missing something from just looking at the summary. Comments are welcome.

Support Carpool New Zealand

January 28, 2008

I never intended the Carpool NZ website to make money but the time has come that I would like to develop it further and to do this, I need support. If you would like to see this website extended and improved, please make a donation here: Donate to the Carpool New Zealand project. We would be very grateful. Many thanks.
