Tech is fun and exiting but...


You have a job, should we say ”a purpose” to get people from a to b on time.
You can blame funding, scheduling and leaves, but the rest of the world is achieving this ”purpose” with much older system and similar restraints.

So before you embarrass yourselves any more. Pretty please with cherries on top make the trains run on time, then and only then think about app technology. You see you've been in the train business for a long time, and you are, for want of a better word...s@#t at it, in fact globally renowned for being s@#t at it.
So what makes you think that overnight you can turn your hand to apps especially when for a measly (4.99 you can stop the adverts)we have a clear understanding of its purpose, which is not to offer a service, which is clear from the UX, you may or may not understand this reference but this is ”the homer” of apps, I don't blame the agency, because if you had any sense you'd have let them get on with it. I do blame them for helping you waste money.

Still stuck in the noughties- No offline mode!!


Load up a journey and want to keep it there for reference- no chance. After quite a short while this app cleverly deletes the information - so if you’re somewhere like on a tube train where there is no WiFi or 4g guess what?: You can’t check your train times and the app is as good as useless - genius!
National Rail: These days (2018) many apps have an offline mode these days. This is because developers have realised that even today, not every cubic centimetre of your country or city has a healthy mobile or WiFi signal. There are still places where you can’t go online (such as on a tube train It takes very little memory to store information like train times on a phone so you can access it offline - very little. Please move with the times and sort out this schoolboy oversight!!

Terrible performance issues


When the app was launched, I thought at last there will be a single source of truth app where I can find all train info...downloaded it and found a feature which allows you to set an alert for any disruptions to your journey. Well...this is absolutely great feature if it’s working...and it doesn’t in this app. I get random notifications of ghost alerts that probably are stuck in the system which is soooo annoying! So pointless app without working features that are actually helpful and they are easy to fix. No regular updates to this app shows how much attention to the bugs are paid by the IT team.
