14/9. New update has made a mild difference but still awful to use compared to the old brilliant app they replaced. Classic case of tech and real world users being on different planets.
The old app was brilliant (ok there is always room for improvement) but it was nearly perfect. This upgrade(?) is a disgrace and an insult to all app developers. It takes skills to make something this bad. I'm still at a loss as to how they managed to release something so useless? It cannot have been tested? Simple answer, download the virgin train app. Same as old gwr app (must be licensing issue hence the upgrade?) Double nectar the lot, problem solved. Go to Virgin.
Bring back the old app
I thought at last -remembers stations and routes- but it does not. I select a station select to and save as favourite and when you select the favourite it shows all services, not remember the via selected.
Sorry still one star. The train line app is much better.
I can no longer save a route to get latest trains. Used to have on the find trains screen my common routes. Paddington to reading, didcot to reading etc
I can find no way to save these as favourites or similar as it only seems to remember a single station. At least the old app was quick and efficient.
A week latter of 1 star reviews and the app is still rubbish . I hope you get a full refund from the app developers as they are a joke.
Missed the train at Paddington this evening as the app insists on downloading all trains before you can filter and favourite only remembers one station. Can I have the old app back - it worked
Room For Improvement
New ap not much better than old one. Needs to be a bit more user friendly. If you use a railcard then so should remember it rather than having to select it each time.
More annoyingly, when you make you purchase you get a screen which gives you the impression that due to technical issue your purchase could not be completed, followed by a screen stating your purchase was succesful. It has been like this for months which shows the lack of interest by FG in the ap
