This app is a must-have! I used it more than a dozen times during our 3-week trip to several German cities. I was able to purchase tickets rather than fussing with a machine, and to easily check updated arrival times, platforms, and seats. I see the negative reviews about difficulty in purchasing tickets but did not have that experience. My credit card information was stored the first time I used it and retrievable every subsequent time. It isn't just for the Inter-City and Regional trains -- it's also for the S-bahns as well. Ticket options are explained in English as well as German (perhaps other languages too?), so it was a snap to tell that for example an S-bahn group day ticket in Munich would save my wife and I money in spite of the ticket allowing up to 5 adults to commute together. We also used the "reserve seats" feature whenever we traveled on busier trains (especially Fridays) as we had luggage and could not go car-to-car searching for seats. The tickets are stored in the app for easy retrieval, and there is a "Komfort" check-in feature so you don't have to show your ticket to the conductor. Here's the real test of its usefulness: it will even tell you where to stand on the platform to be aligned with your car -- very useful for reserved seats when you have luggage. It was especially useful when one of our trains was canceled (while we were on the platform) and I could tell exactly what my options were. There are a number of options you can invoke so be sure to play with the app to find all it can do for you. Highly recommend!!!

Update 11.03.22 - login function STILL BROKEN! Still cannot buy tickets via the app. Older versions of the app used to be a workaround to login but no longer...come on, get it together! App is useless with new account login procedure. You can login over and over again but it always takes you back to the login screen each time and you cannot buy a ticket. The only way to login and buy a ticket is through a browser, so then what is the point of an app???

The most unreliable app. Everytime I travel something horrible happens. Rerouting, change of platform, delays, unexpected changes and never is it in the app. They announce it once on the speaker in the train with the most unaudible sound. You have to guess what is happening, somehow manage to gather all your things and exit the train on time to run over 10 platforms to catch your train. Which you probably won't and you have to wait in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere for hours
