About the Developer

Hey, I’m Matthew Morek, and I’m the developer behind Tramspotter. I’m a product designer and software developer based in Manchester, UK, and I made Tramspotter initially for myself. I was tired of the official Metrolink app not being optimal for quickly checking tram departures during my morning commute to the city centre. So, I decided to make my own app that would solve this problem and be easy to use, using TfGM’s API service.

Now, Tramspotter is available for anyone to download and enjoy. I’m passionate about making technology work for people, not the other way around. That’s why I created Tramspotter to be fast, reliable, and user-friendly.
