    Find tickets, your train, and even something to eat using this app.

    "Commuter Heaven"


    For those who use mass transit frequently, this will be one of the most used apps on your phone.


    The ability to use the app to find out when your train will get to the gate is helpful. You can also buy tickets while on the go, eliminating the need to stand in line. If you aren't sure where you are going, the app can also help with that. Finally, the app integrates well with Apple Watch so that you don't even have to use your phone.


    Like with any other app that monitors transport, there are going to be times when it just doesn't get it right. It can also eat away at battery.

    The alerts won't delete and a one off alert I set up for a trip in September is now warning me {mid October} that this train is delayed and setting off the warning sound. I have removed the app for now. This is a useful app when travelling by train in the UK. But not till the alerts are sorted out.

    The alerts have literally never worked for me. I don't even understand why they still promote this as a feature.

    Why would you restrict favourite stations to a maximum of 3?? What use does this serve? I travel between a few different stations frequently, yet because of this arbitrary limit I'm having to search for them regularly.

    Used to be brilliant but now the wake me up feature doesn't work properly. The alarm only goes off when the screen is unlocked, otherwise it just vibrates briefly once, which is not enough to wake you up. I've tried changing numerous settings but nothing seems to bring this feature back to normal. 2 stars because it's otherwise very good but needed the wake me up feature last night and it let me down! Please fix. Thank you.

    Terrible ad Laden and keeps demanding location even when told not to. Not even sure if it offers ticket sale or not.

    I should not be surprised that an app supplied by national rail has no useful information on the basic things. Impossible to delete old journey alerts, so get alerts on journeys I took last year. Badly thought out, with no help when needed. Just like most stations.
