I'm baffled! What used to be a slow yet functional app has been rendered literally useless by the latest update. Will not load any content. Cannot be used to book tickets. Cannot view trips past or future. I guess it's back to using the browser and loading a pdf ticket on my phone. I'd prefer any previous version that worked to this update.
The latest update has really made thing ha worse. It was a great app before but now it is slow and takes forever as it is constantly try to load old bookings. I have to stop it just to get to my current ones or else it will try and load forever. BAD update!!! My rating went from 5 to 2.
the basic functionality is fine, and more useful than the website. i can see my upcoming trips and pull up the tickets for check-in. but it only works in portrait mode. it is annoying to have the app flip my display around, all the more so because there is no reason for this. presumably someone decided if would look better in portrait, but surely that decision should be left up to the user?
The latest update has broken what WAS a perfectly efficient app. Will not display or update any upcoming trips and is painfully slow at changing pages to other selections. Deleting it and will only use paper tickets from now on.
Something was seriously wrong with the last update. The load time is unbearable. Please fix..
Although promised to be incorporated into the app for 2016, it still does not have the functionality to retrieve bookings made outside the app (ie. 3rd party), even though the booking is linked to a Via Preference #. Come on Via. It is now 2017. This should have been incorporated long ago.
Version 1.6 includes the following enhancements and fixes of occasional bugs:
- Optimized handling of your upcoming trips
- Optimized performance and speed of the app
- Optimized train status display
- Boarding pass and trip detail information available for offline use
