I Love HelloNeighbour ,


This app is useless, they say on the update log that they have “added new stations”, when they haven’t. If I wanted to catch a train from say, Haymarket to Edinburgh Gateway, I can’t, I would have to put Haymarket to South Gyle and look for trains that call at Edinburgh Gateway.
Edinburgh Gateway station opened in 2016 I think.. The same thing with Robroyston, Meridian Water. Meridian Water station was to replace Angel road, they don’t have meridian water or Angel road stations. And they do still have, I.B.M. Station, and Redcar Brittish Steel, just with a notice below the “earlier” button saying “Trains no longer call at this station”. And it tells me I’m “offline” when I have perfectly good Wi-Fi/mobile data.

If you need to check trains, just use ByTrain instead.

Hopeless beyond belief

Try to buy a ticket and it says I am offline. I am no. It. I can do everything else in the internet have full bars and yea, obviously I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. I’m in a stable still place with good internet. Also dreadful to navigate especially when you have looked at a train time and want to look at something else. Absolutely iseless

Hate this app with every fibre of my body. Staggeringly useless trying to look at train times today. Says there may be disrupted. Clicked it for extra info and cannot get past the privacy settings because Eli don’t know what all the options means or how to select. Never had so many pr Vance notices. I don’t care one little bit I just want to know amid my train is running. Useless beyond anything possible. Deters it and never get any answers or help.

Useful but with big flaws

It doesn’t update quickly enough so, for example, if you’re catching a train it says will arrive at 10:53, you’ll often arrive at the platform to see its long gone. Same with cancellations.
It has an infuriating feature that doesn’t update the time you made your original query. So if you later go back to see how things are going on your route you’ll get a message saying sarcastically “you can’t plan a journey in the past”. How about keeping the clock up to date, you pillocks?
There is no option in London to opt out of tube train routes. These are often unhelpful.
Otherwise it’s quite useful.
