"Never Miss the Train Again"

Reviewed by / Feb 24, 2015

Buy tickets, check the schedule, stay on track!

THE VERDICT

The SBB Mobile app lets you check Switzerland's train schedule. You can check stations, look at time tables, and even purchase tickets for up to eight people at a time. The app even has a take me home feature, which uses GPS to show you the quickest train route home including times, stations, and switches.

THE PROS

The app gives you the ability to purchase tickets and check schedules.

THE CONS

The app sometimes has glitches with purchasing tickets.

    Guys, please fix this the station name labels in the route info view. The labels are cut off and only show the first couple characters. So for instance Wettingen, Winkelried and similar just becomes "Wettingen,..." and there is no way to tap or otherwise show the rest of the name. THANKS.

    Poor UI. Does not use the standard drawer style, nonstandard notification (colored icon, spacing...). Also a bit laggy. Would be nice if updated to material design theme and icons.

    Beautiful app and nice work ! Just one thing, no material design isn't serious.
