Still stuck in the noughties- No offline mode!!

Load up a journey and want to keep it there for reference- no chance. After quite a short while this app cleverly deletes the information - so if you’re somewhere like on a tube train where there is no WiFi or 4g guess what?: You can’t check your train times and the app is as good as useless - genius!
National Rail: These days (2018) many apps have an offline mode these days. This is because developers have realised that even today, not every cubic centimetre of your country or city has a healthy mobile or WiFi signal. There are still places where you can’t go online (such as on a tube train It takes very little memory to store information like train times on a phone so you can access it offline - very little. Please move with the times and sort out this schoolboy oversight!!

Terrible, awful, useless, unfit, indictment of an application.

Considering the size of national rail and the amount of people that are forced to use it terrible service under the banner of national rail, the application in simple terms is unfit for purpose. Booking a ticket online is simply near impossible. Payment details, entered more than 4 times to no avail, journey planning logistically navigating the terrible layout will require you having a PhD in poor applications, think you can keep a journey within the planner whilst also wanting to see live times, think again, it’s like you have taken an already terrible service of national rail and then made it worse on purpose to annoy people who are simply trying to catch a train. Often I go to the journey planner to find that it’s placed me a day into the future for no actual reason. I then open the date box for the application to magically reload me the correct date, so in simple terms unless you tell the application today’s date you will be planning time scales of the next day by default. Why on earth would you set it for the next day as a default option. It literally makes no sense. I honestly cannot convey how bad this application is, nothing is good about it at all, I wish I didn’t have to use this app but sadly I do and it destroys me everyday.

Simply awful

This is one of the most dreadful apps I have ever used the layout is unclear payment tabs are virtually hidden nothing here is remotely unintuitive. In addition to a highly user unfriendly layout the underbelly of operation is equally bad. There is no Paypal option required a convoluted and frustrating entry into the horror story of my account after many attempts to even teach the log in page. Credit card details have to be repeatedly entered and saved in several places again and again you buy one ticket with the card then go thorough the ire inspiring process yet again to buy a second ticket (why can’t you buy two at once I ask myself?) and it telly you the card you just used is now suddenly invalid. This app needs completely junking with a fully functioning replacement which is easy to use, clear and offers fast payment using PayPal. It is a miracle I actually managed to buy any tickets with it today it is a challenge I will not rise to again - too slow, too laborious, too much hassle. I do not recommend it.
