    Why does this App bounce me out when I do a journey planner. This used to work great. Reset phone. Deleted and re installed app. What's happened? Very frustrating. Use a different app guys. Please help!

    It's a great app but needs to be more battery efficient. One day with the widget active it drained 40% of my battery.

    This app gets worse and worse.uninstalled and reinstalled it on my Samsung Galaxy Note II and still unable to navigate from one page to another. Once chosen a page once that is your lot. You have to close and reopen it. Sort it out NatRail, I pay over £2k per year in travel and need better service than this for my money.

    App is poor. Crashes frequently. Refuses to download data, especially it seems at peak hours so this may be a server problem. The desktop widget is particularly bad for crashing and not updating. Should take a long look at citymapper and thetrainline apps for a lesson in how to do this right.
