Why no fullscreen

If the app developer could be bothered to design the app so that it is full screen on an iPhone 11 then I suspect I would find it more accessible and willing to pay the £5 for.

I am visually impaired, and whereas the overall look and feel is quite good for me, the fact that we have had larger screens since the Iphone 5 for over 7 years but the app size has not changed (and so has black bars at the top and bottom) is infuriating - it smacks is a level of arrogance that they can’t be bothered. All the other train apps do it so why can’t they!!!

Oh and au see that the App Developer link goes through to the National Enquiries page so you can’t actually contact them directly, nor do they seem to respond to feedback on here. Staggering

Shockingly backwards ‘upgrade’

Like many I have been wfh for several months and was trying to plan a journey for May. The app has been changed considerably. First of all, what is the point of looking for train times if the price is not displayed?!? Why remove the price?! Secondly setting a train time to look at takes five steps. Rather than having the super easy rolling time feature for time and date, you now have to tap the time in, it takes about five steps as opposed to one, truly irritating and not user-friendly at all for iPhone users. Please go back to the far better and easier to use format. Absolutely useless in its current guise.

Seems spammy

The look and feel is terrible, it is like someone thought of the features and put zero effort into how people would use it.

The only reason I downloaded it is because the internet is so slow at some stations I thought it might work better than the mobile website but the adverts keep the app from working at a useful speed and take up most of the screen anyway, shame, just another money grabbing attempt from the train operators - maybe if they relied on the extortionate ticket costs rather than squeezing adverts into everything, this would have been a better app.

No, I won’t pay the £4.99 to upgrade.
