The time table app, with no actual time

If you what to know what time your train is coming tough luck, you’ve woken up and you use the app now you have to figure what 40 mins is from now as the app won’t tell you the literal time , it will however tell you the time of every train station after, so the work around is to look you the time for the station or halt prior to the one you want doh

The count down also does not refresh it’s only relative to the moment you clicked to the page so it you recheck the app, it will still say xx mins away unless you recheck from the start , and if a mate or taxi is dropping you to the halt xx mins from 08:43 isn’t helpful to them either.

The icon for the halt station that looks like a Wi-fi icon actual shows a zoomed in map it a halt and a road there’s literally nothing to define a local. The same zoomed in map could be used for any halt

Love it but..

As much as the new app is great in its many ways, I would love it if you had the time when the next train is due instead of 17mins like that’s helpful for some people but perhaps change it so the time it’s due in shoes first but when you tap on the time it shows you the minutes? Just a suggestion I really prefer the times shown.

Also I find this app isn’t as up to date on delays or cancellations as the previous version.

New Version

The new version doesn’t show the time the next bus is due - just how many minutes until the next one, not very good if you want to look in advance for times and also easy to disguise now when they are late and not following the timetable!
Also now if you do get the timetable up it doesn’t allow you to zoom in and on a mobile phone the writing is very small and hard to see - maybe something they could consider fixing in the next update!
