Really useful widget

I really like using this app’s widget. I wish the developer would change the colour of the font used to display the times and platform numbers. The blue font on the grey background is really difficult to see, particularly for people like me with bad eyesight. It seems like a really simple thing to do - just change the colour value. Been requesting this for a while but it doesn’t seem to have been included in any of the recent updates.
