Ratings and Reviews
This app gets worse with each release
Go back 10 years and it was a great app. Now it is not intuitive and the Live updates are completely backwards. You would expect better from someone with a big budget, but clearly not testing let alone any useability testing! 2 out of 5 is being generous really.
No Longer Supports Dark Mode?
Recently, this app seems to think “white text on a white background” is an acceptable approach. After a few tries (and no help from the settings *within* the App), I discovered that switching the whole phone to Light Mode enabled it to work again. This is clearly a workaround rather than a fix. Hopefully NatRail is working on sorting this properly. (As others have commented, this App used to be really good but seems to be getting worse over time...)
Back to Front
Generally happy with the app, except for the Live Services panel - the to & from stations are still, and have always been, the wrong way round - you need to put the destination station in the “From” box and the departure station in the “To” box!
Kinda ok when you get used to it, but clearly wasn’t properly bug-tested before release.
