Should be great, but isn't.
Not sure what is happening here, but is gotta be under the hood somewhere. The app drags to start up and when I look for my reservations, there is a serious delay to the pint of failure gathering the info. If when starting I disconnect the internet (airplane mode style) the app starts up immediately thereafter, but of course can't talk to the system that has the info for my trips. So I get out of the airplane mode, try to view my reservation and it sits there with the wheel spinning until the request time out. Perhaps my one star is actually for a horrible server farm somewhere and not the app itself, but the servers are leaving the app dysfunctional. Hope this comment helps get things worked out. PS other network processes elsewhere with the phone and internet seem to be fine.
**update: it seems the trouble exists mostly when connecting via LTE phone networks. I'm on tMobile. Perhaps it's an isolated thing.
Very useful, with some odd limitations
The main feature I use is "check train status", and I use it all the time because Amtrak trains are frequently late for my commute home. For the most part, it works great, but annoyingly the default query date is saved from my last status check. Why the heck would I be interested in the status of trains yesterday?? It should always default to today. This is minor, obviously, but it's an unnecessary step that I have to take 5 days a week.
Another annoying limitation: I can't save my tickets onto the app. I'm a special case, my pass is purchased by the institution that I work at as part of a commuter benefits program. Unfortunately for me, this app is not useful in that sense.
Great app with flaws
I love this application for buying my ticket on Amtrak. I having an issue with this current version since the application is not promptly showing my trip on the application. Instead give me "cannot connect to sever". I actually had to go to Amtrak ticket kiosk in emeryville California just to check if my reservation was made. The funny thing was that even Amtrak agent that has the new iPhone 7 is still having the same issue as I am having with the application. Amtrak developers please fix this bug. Can you add this again to wallet again please. I really don't know why your company decided to remove that great feature since I honestly miss it and would make my Amtrak and many other Amtrak patrons trip much smoother. Would make for a better journey on Amtrak great service.
