Had not read reviews but loaded app to try it and research trips. But there is no trip info other than train numbers and times, at least as a guest. You should be able to check costs as a guest just as you can in web. I'll give it a 3 - for now - but will probably remove.

App is great. There is just one big BUG that makes it difficult to add the train schedule into my Google calendar. The "add to calendar" button on the boarding pass page would add in a nicely detailed event into my calendar, but after a minute it disappears from my calendar every single time. I swear it worked a couple weeks ago, but not anymore. Please fix this issue, and I will definitely change my rating to 5 stars! EDIT: This app just doesn't work and will not show my bookings for future trips. Super buggy and will show only a few booked trips at a time. Just super unreliable and buggy to use all around. 1 star.

It is a fairly well designed app and user-friendly, however there are some limitations that make it less useful than it should be. For instance, if a travel companion makes a reservation for you, the reservation will not appear in your trips on the app (or on the Web site) even if it was made using your Via Preference number. There is no way to manually enter the reservation either, for instance by using the confirmation number. Resolving this functional limitation would make the app much useful.
