What's New in Version 1.76
iOS7 bug fixes.
Good handy app
So far my experience with this app has been next to flawless. It UI is of a much higher standard than that of the train line and in terms of ticket prices their both very close. Just one little thing that would make this app really handy (and 5 stars) is if there is an ability to put mobile tickets in to passbook.
Good but features missing
A very good app that is useful for checking train times but it's not good for buying tickets because there's no option to have home delivery. I don't see why this feature can't be added as it's available on their website and it's the option that I always take.
App not the problem, fgw's support of it is
Don't use this app. The problem is not the app itself, which is quite good. The problem is first great western. If you need to change an m-ticket or have a problem then good luck. The contact information on the fgw website (under ' important information about m-tickets') is wrong, customer services are quick to deny responsibility and basically you will lose your money, after a little trip around the houses of bring passed from dept to dept on the phone.
