Very well made app with a good array of solid features. A couple of additions that would hit 5 stars for me at least: - Ability to share a found ticket (Via email, Message etc) Link to app would be useful - Ability to view "Next/Previous" trains for part of a journey. IE see if you could make the connection fast enough to get an earlier train.
Still haven't changed back the live train departures Sometimes I want to see ALL the departures from a station. This update has removed that useful feature. Oh and please get rid of the annoying / useless (for trains without bookings) "Does this train have empty seats" pop-up.
No reservations about rating this 2 stars! After having waited for years for a mobile app for tickets I booked and found you can't book a seat. So have to ring up an offshore helpdesk to book. Come on Trainline, if the airlines can make it simple why can't you?
Waste of time I got this app thinking that it would allow me to use Mobile Tickets as my local station does not have a ticket office or a machine and I like to book seats, but it turns out mobile tickets are not available for most of my journeys! Also this app does not show you whether or not you have been successful in reserving seats before you pay (so no option to switch to a train with seats available) and even after I've paid I'm finding it very difficult to find my seat reservations. Rubbish.
Getting more useless by the update I originally installed this as I wanted live train times. I am a season ticket holder and I do not want an account or to purchase tickets through this app. Live information is less and less accessible with every update and there are trains that are not shown because I can't buy a ticket for them. (22:30 from Truro to Paddington, I'm looking at you)
screwed up live times idiot developers who clearly don't use their own app have unilaterally decided to change the live times function to require you to input both to and from locations. total pricks. I want to pick from all the trains available with all the combinations of places to change especially when they are running late. I could do that a month ago. now I'm forced to uninstall as it is easier to ask a guard. technology is supposed to be an enabler not a disabler. Update: ha! National Rail app does what I want. see ya.
