Useful app, displays platform numbers and train delays. However, the constant crashes whilst displaying search results or when there is no connection makes this infuriating to use. Also, given that it doesn't work offline, I don't see why this couldn't have been an improved mobile version of the main website.

The list in "My live trains" is broken. Should be a chronological list of your most recent live departures searches, but seems now to be a random jumble of previous searches, some of which are duplicated. Also the nag box demanding that you enable notifications is really irritating. Why can't I dismiss it, instead of it being stuck there pushing the search box down the screen?

Overall, great; an excellent and really valuable resource for planning and tanning trains. I use the app all the time! However, one thing that I find particularity frustrating is that it isn't possible to pinch-zoom to read what's on the screen. Depends on your screen size and visual acuity but it's something I value a lot 😁
