What’s the verdict?
Great app for commuters or those who regularly use the train to travel. The train runs live so all information is up-to-date and accurate, which is very handy when you are busy travelling. The wake-up alerts feature is great to avoid oversleeping on those 10 minute naps – it wakes you up at your stop and alerts you if the train is going to split! everything you need to travel on the train you can find on this app, making your travel experience a more enjoyable and smooth one.
