What's New in Version 2.0.3
Fixes an issue impacting a limited number of users.
I find it mind-boggling that, not only can't the app developers of a major entity like Amtrak solve whatever technical glitch befell the Passport feature, but that they then pose the following solution: abandon it completely! Are you kidding me? Somewhere, even the makers of Atari's "Pong" are laughing at this level of ineptitude!
Look, guys--you have a decent app. You've finally let us link the app to our Guest Reward points. And we love Amtrak. But a lot of us LIKED the Passport feature. It was a cool way of keeping track of the stations we've visited, and for those of us who are heavy travelers and train foamers, collecting the stamp was akin to a kid collecting baseball cards. I never had a problem with the Passport functionality, but if some experienced glitches...well, all I can say is that even a buggy Passport feature is better than no Passport feature at all! Give it back and I'll change my rating to 5 stars--I've bought tickets from the app a number of times and love it for its convenience.
The only thing it's good for is adding a boarding pass to your passbook.
When you add a reservation to your Trips section, it doesn't even remember it later.
When a train is delayed or cancelled, the app doesn't alert you even if you opt-in to the alerts.
When you're tracking a train, it doesn't actually provide any useful information (i.e. gate/track numbers); I literally couldn't look up what gate/track my train was boarding from through this app!
Also, it doesn't provide any detail for the stops a train is going to make, so if you're on a regional train to a destination, don't expect this app to help you figure out how many stops until you reach your destination.
There's also no easy way to call Amtrak customer service from this app. If you wanted to get in touch with someone about your reservation, you'd have to dig up the email confirmation for the 800 number.
Everything about this app frustrates me!! It has so much potential but is essentially useless in its current form. As someone who uses the United Airlines app frequently, the Amtrak app is just such a disappointment in comparison.
Excellent app, passbook is fine!
I have no idea why the other reviews are so negative. The app works perfectly, allowing me to make a reservation, add upgrades and easily pull all details. I was even able to change a reservation very easily.
The passbook feature is great, though it was a little tricky to find: when viewing your eticket, you have to tap Menu in the upper right then choose Add to Passbook.
Great job amtrak: one of the best traveling apps out there. Please tell you developers to go pitch Southwest Airlines because their app is terrible.
