Ratings and Reviews
Great App, would appreciate Wallet support
Love this app! It works as it should and I appreciate the features it has. I would, however, appreciate options for Monatskarte and the ability to add purchased cards to apple wallet for easy access.
App crashed when I was getting controlled on the train!!!!
The app crashed and wouldn’t open when the ticket checks began on my train and now I have to waste time going to the customer service to explain this problem and the 60 euro ticket. I’d advise any traveller to avoid using this app if you want to feel securely about your train travel. Remember, the train controllers work on weird incentives. They get paid based on a quota system of how many people they stop! They will still write you a ticket even as they see difficulty.
What’s more, I couldn’t go to the DB customer service on the same day that I got the ticket. The train controller’s notes must batch every night to DB because they didn’t have them. You can’t even go to get the ticket rectified until 2pm the next day.
For the app developers, you really need to get this right so you don’t inconvenience travellers and tourists with these app crashings!!!!!
Convenient but has technical problems
I downloaded this app on the advice of friends just before I went to Berlin. The trip planner works well and has almost everyplace you would want to visit in the city
There were a couple of technical problems:
1) The GPS mapping portion of the app does not turn off when you minimize the app. As a result, I used up my phone battery in 2 hours on the first day. The only way I found to stop it was to turn off my phone after I had used the app and then restart my phone
2) you can only buy tickets on the phone if you live in the EU. I do not do that was no help
3) as noted in other reviews, there was no way to use favorites or re-use a recent search you had entered into the app
