5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource For The Rail Traveller 6 April 2013
By Andrew McCann TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Personally I would regard this app as an essential facility for the rail traveller. However it is important to note before purchase that a prerequisite for use is an Internet connection, as it relies on this to access the "live" information, which makes the app so useful.

Not only does it provide details about arrivals and departures and the appropriate platform numbers at requested UK railway stations, but it also states whether or not trains are running on time or not.

There is also a Journey Planner, which includes the times of departures between stations and whether or not it is necessary to change trains on a particular route.

It is one of those apps that I really would not like to be without and would heartily recommend it to all.

This app allows the tube map app to provide full info on stations shared by London Underground and National Rail plus provides current arrival and departure times at National Rail stations you select. There is also a route planner for rail journeys which, unlike some other journey planners offered, does not fall into the trap of sometimes telling you to get off a train going to your destination and change to a following train or inventing convoluted routes.

However the app has to be used judiciously. For example, suppose you know that there are through trains from Sutton, Surrey to St Pancras and wish to plan a journey from Epsom, Surrey to via Kings Cross/St Pancras to your destination, simply inputting Epsom to St Pancras will not reveal this option but instead routes you via London Underground from Victoria or Vauxhall, involving you in a diabolical long walk from the Victoria line platform at Kings Cross/St Pancras Underground to St Pancras National Rail station, instead of the simple same platform change of trains at Sutton.
The app could be improved by including the walking distances between stations or platforms, a critical factor for elderly, and disabled people and those with heavy luggage.

Don't expect magic from this app - it only uses data from easily available web pages and it does need wifi BUT it is neat and gives arrivals and departures plus on-time (or otherwise) data for any station you select and this is so much easier than trawling train websites. Glad I got it

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as you'd expect 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
It works well enough, except if you use the live arrival or departure boards, since it doesn't tell you where the train calls. This makes life difficult if you have a travel card or don't want to use their long winded journey planner. There are free apps which are better, but, sadly, they haven't been adapted for kindle fire yet. Not worth 3 quid. Just use national rail enquiries website instead
