The SNCB app offers a complete view of all public transportation information in Belgium. The multimodal travel planner calculates the fastest door-to-door journey, optionally with GPS. Bus, metro and train departure schedules are readily available and train information is always given in realtime. Departure and arrival schedules also can be consulted for a station of your choice. Another option is to search on train number. Furthermore, network disturbances are available in realtime, reminders can be set for each stop of your choice, and you have the possibility to receive alerts when your train is delayed.
The app also offers the possibility to buy a ticket, to save travel schedules in your calendar and/or to share them with others via e-mail, sms or Twitter.
When downloading you will be asked to give your permission to activate certain services the app features:
o GPS position: through geolocalisation you can find the nearest station
o Calendar: you can save a travel itinerary in your calendar
• you can purchase a Mobile ticket for one of your phonebook contacts
• you can share your journey with others via sms, e-mail, Twitter
o Push messages: be automatically informed when your train is delayed
Payment for a Mobile Ticket can be made by credit card (VISA, Master Card, American Express), PayPal, Bancontact, KBC or Belfius via the protected servers of Ingenico Payment Services. If you wish, you can save the credit card details after a first purchase in order to complete future purchases more quickly. In this case you will only need to enter your security code (CVC) to finalize the next purchases.

The convenience of an app is great but it only works part of the time. It tends to freeze up at the most inconvenient times.
Much better options out there ....
It serves the basics and works. That said. The app isn’t really well integrated .. if you select the route you want and then ask for purchase you have to re-enter the trajectory... payment method does not store well. I’d recommend having a look at the SBB app from Swiss railways which is modern, practical, user friendly with much better daily use integrating remembering your subscription, dealing with seniors etc ... a lot to learn still!
For an application as dynamic as this, it should be updated more often than each year. Many things do not work well or crash the app on iOS 13+, please update your stuff rather than having passengers suffer your consequential decisions in not hiring enough skilled people to manage these sort of things. Seriously!
