Usually great but latest new feature has a flaw

Love this app usually however the new feature for line closures affects future events.

So if I want to plan a journey for next week for times I’m unable to as the line is “currently” closed a bit frustrating when I only want to check times for weekend.

Other than that great app, just need to fix this little bug.

Latest Version Crashes

I use this app quite a bit. But alike the actual train service, there is a much needed overhaul. I’m writing this here because there no option in the app to report a bug.

The app crashes all the time. I can even replicate one by using the journey planner. When you select stations and tap ‘find’ to crashes goes black and to the home screen.

I only use this app because it just shows me this area and it’s line statuses, but you can use any uk train app of course.

Great for iPhone. Very bad for iPad.

Works very well on my iPhone. However when launched on the iPad it switches the screen to landscape mode even overriding the orientation lock in general settings. This messes up any other apps that happen to be running and is generally confusing.
