Pan Bikes is an application for Sailfish OS to view the locations and real-time occupancy of city bike stations. It primarily uses the citybik.es API and supports all networks and cities proxied by that API. It is also possible add new providers directly to Pan Bikes.

More than 400 cities are supported. See the map at citybik.es for details.

Pan Bikes is a broader continuation and recommended upgrade to Helsinki City Bikes, compared to which there's dynamic data loading, closest stations on cover and various small improvements and bug fixes.

Source code and issue tracker are available at GitHub. Translations at Transifex. Discussion at TMO.

I meant the former. I know of at least one 3rd party (android) app that was capable to book a bike from call-a-bike service. So there must be some kind of api. It's probably proprietary, but I hoped that this citybik.es service would offer it. Doesn't seem so unfortunately.

At last! Great. Thank you very much. This was one of the apps I was still missing as a native one. CityBikeMe did not support my local bike sharing provider. Yours does! Really great. Are there plans to support booking process as well?

Do you have a system where you have to book the bike to use it? Or do you mean the initial registering to use the bikes in general and providing your payment details or paying an annual fee? The former is very is very unlikely to happen as it's not a common problem and regarding the latter I think the most I could do is provide some information and a link to a web page. The citybik.es API seems to link to GBFS data for some networks, example below, so in those cases some information is available.
