Great app, not experienced any of the crashing that has been reported by others but has been showing me the train times reliably whenever I open the app and need to get going. The filters are OK but they need to do better at saving properly, for example if you change the TO/FROM stations, they don't seem to get saved and so I spent time manually inputting the stations I am going to/from. App needs better shortcuts for saved journeys so that searching for times is just a case of a single tap.

Does the job, although when planning a journey it is advisable to check each leg individually as connection times allowed for the complete journey can be a little too generous. Much worse however, the app now refuses to work if you deny location permission. The screens will load, but any user input is impossible. Furthermore, a basic improvement would be to have the planner default to current date and time. I'm fed up with the "can't plan a journey in the past" error.

This app hasn't changed or improved in years- much like the trains themselves. But it gives you all the information you need. But please don't show trains as "on time" when they haven't departed yet- show "scheduled" instead.
