Check in with phone

I think there must be a simple with to connect personal ov chip card with the app do that you can simple check in and out with you phone. It sounds simple but would be one of the best feature.

Great for tourists who want to take a train

This app is easy to use and much more comprehensive than the transit support in maps (or google maps). All the information you need is right at your fingertips. The only minor issue is that the disruption information is only in Dutch (I just copy/paste into google translate).

Shock&Awe ,

A must have when traveling in NL

This app is brilliant and extremely accurate! Not only kept me on time but also able to time a different train of needed. I wouldn't live with out it! If you travel get it!
