A powerful yet simple UK train app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. Instantly check the trains departing from your local station. Supports Apple Watch and watchOS 2. Accessible from everywhere using the Today view widget.
Departure Board is a simple application that displays the information found on rail departure board signs across the UK. When launched, Departure Board will use your location to find that station nearest to you and it will instantly load the rail departure board for it. Departure Board will display the time and platform that the train is due to depart from.
Departure Board also allows you to see where each train currently is, where it has called and at what time. You can even share the train you are getting right from the application.

What's New in Version 3.0.4
- Added Haptic Feedback (Thanks, Ash!)
Convenient and accessible
I am a frequent train traveller, and this app is extremely useful to me. Sometimes, I just need to know when my train is leaving, and from which platform. Departure Board gives this information by automatically loading the departures for the nearest station.
The app, since the latest version, also works extremely well with Voice Over, making it a great choice for blind and visually impaired iOS users. The developer is extremely receptive to suggestions and feedback, be they accessibility-related or otherwise.
I highly recommend to at least give the free trial a go.
iPhone UI and watch UI great
This app is the best 👍
