Very Useful App - Tweaks Would be Great
I struggled with major glitches when I upgraded to v3.0.3, but after deleting the app and reinstalling it, it has worked almost flawlessly. It’s a very useful way to get quick info on the trains I care about. One annoyance I hope they can fix is when trains are delayed, say an 8:00 train has an ETA of 8:05, if the schedule is refreshed to get an updated ETA, it works fine until the scheduled arrival time (8:00). If I refresh the list after 8:00, the 8:00 train disappears from the schedule that is shown, even if it hasn’t arrived yet, so I can’t get an updated ETA. Ideally, the app would continue to show a train on the schedule until ~30 secs after it DEPARTS the station (should show “departed” as status). If this minor change is made, the app would be a perfect 5 stars.
Useful app with minor oversights
It’s annoying that it won’t show train information after the departure time—often I’d like to check when the train I’m on will arrive, or check what stops it’s making. It would also be nice if the train time and e-ticket apps were combined—switching between them can be annoying. That said, it’s great to be able to find up to date info on train schedules and tracks without having to hunt for and crowd around information boards in the station.
Shows no one senior checked it carefully
2 Basic flaws 1 Once the train has started, the app disables the journey and cannot check when you are going to reach 2 Often it shows times from 4 am or so and I am unable to see the current train times. Why not at least let flipping through the pages or best show times from 1hr back onwards and that way the 1st flaw will be covered 3 It does not show the latest status of train times accurately, which is misleading. Not sure if this is difficult to get, although I feel this is programming error.
