Lost all favourites
The upgrade looks much the same and I don't have / want an apple watch. However, it did delete all my favourites despite spending five minutes saying "migrating database" which really means erasing everything - five minutes I was desperately trying to use the app at a station.
Usability hasn't improved. I only search for about four stations but in different combinations. I always end up having to type them again and again.
On the plus side, the apps information is updated quicker than the station boards / staff.

Updated review May 2015: Still unresponsive, have to touch the buttons several times before it will do anything, and most of the time I get that message about me not being online. Ads still there. I wouldn't mind paying a small amount to remove them, but £4.99 is ridiculous and greedy. And that error message described above is still shown regularly even when I do have a signal. Trainline app is better. Lowered review rating to 1 star because of their refusal to fix these issues plus the fact that it is slower than before.
Still not very good
Oh my. Never has any app infuriated me so much that I have felt compelled to review it. I have installed and deleted this app so many times, each time expecting the new release to surpass the previous. With every itteration it seems this app gets worse. Frequent crashes, failure to search for stations, convoluted searching not to mention adverts to lure you into actually paying for it. I was waiting for this app for the apple watch integration but have given up, failing to add a favourite station as apparently "London Victoria" can't be found. Seems my rail fare is being wisely invested.
