This app is for the commuters. Display all the National Rail and London Overground train departure information you need on one simple screen. No more searching, no more taps. Once you've set it up, open the app and the info you need is always right there in front of you.
The app allows you to add stations that you commonly travel between to your favourites, then the departure board for those journeys will appear right on the app's home screen as soon as you open the app.
The list is ordered by distance from your current location so the trains you're interested in are always right there at the top of your screen.
If your device has GPS (iPhones and some iPads), when you walk into one of your favourite stations you can choose to receive a notification with departure times of the next few trains to your chosen destination. You don't even have to open the app to see when your next train will be, it just appears! As easy as that.
If you use both an iPhone and an iPad your favourite journeys will automatically sync using iCloud - no need to set everything up twice.
If your commute is even more fixed, you can also pin individual trains. Once you’ve decided on a departure, tap on it to pin it. The departure will move to the top of the screen and give you more details about where the train is currently. Once it sets off it’ll stay there, even when the departure has dropped off the station’s departure board, keeping you updated with the last station you passed through, your estimated arrival time, platform and any delays.
All the information comes direct from National Rail Enquiries so will be as up to date and real time as the station boards. We're all creatures of habit, if you find yourself often travelling between the same stations (for work or pleasure), this is the app for you!
Note: This isn't a journey planner. Only direct train services between stations will show up, the app won't suggest connections. But once you've found out the connection points of your journey, add them into this app to keep up to date with the train times.
Now if you pin any journeys they will appear in the watch app. From here, you can keep track of the current state of your pinned journeys all on one screen from your watch, or tap any individual pinned journey to see more info about the calling points
The watch app also now uses dynamic text sizing, so if you use the watch app and have your watch’s text size setting set larger, the app will respect this making it easier to read.
