Can't buy ticket

There is a function to buy an online ticket but it doesn't work. When you click purchase the app just infinitely loads. Better off using the DB app.

The most privacy breaking app ever

This App requires access to your contact (why?). In order to buy ticket you must provide not only phone number but as well DOB (why???). This app collects all important info about single person. I hope they protect their customer data!

Barely usable

You cannot register unless you have a German number. (Activation doesn’t work) so if you are a tourist, you better buy your ticket from a ticket machine instead.
Also, ironically, the app asks you to permit access to tour contact list. Why is that??
