Useless outside of Tokyo, mostly useless in Tokyo

Well... Thanks JR East but:

It's not possible to access timetables for stations other than Tokyo, Ueno, Shinagawa, and Shinjuku.
The station in Tokyo I visit the most is Ikebukuro. Perhaps it's not busy enough to warrant a timetable? (Or it doesn't have Shinkansen service.)

I don't need detailed information on the Yamamote line. It runs in a circle and stops at every station. I need the complete timetable for Yokohama station with all limited express, liner, overnight, and special excursion trains included. I need the complete timetable for the Shonan-Shinjuku and Ueno-Tokyo lines including all branches of service in Tochigi, Ibaraki, Saitama, Tokyo, Kanagawa, and Shizuoka. Can't this be done in English?

It's better than nothing if you are vacationing in Tokyo or plan to use the Shinkansen from Tokyo, but this is laughably inadequate compared to the comprehensive Japanese version.

I give JR East much credit for their heroic efforts in catering to non-Japanese speakers, but this app isn't exactly the high point of that campaign.

The most useful feature is probably real-time info on service disruptions.

Keep an eye on this and look for improvements in future versions.

Needed app terrible execution

All I use this app for is to see which JR Yamanote train cars are the least crowded and have the coolest temperatures. Everything else from delays to route guidance can be done faster, better, and easier on google maps or hyperdia. Connection is horrible. The app rarely connects. Instead of cacheing the data so it only has to connect one time it reaches out to the servers each selection, so it is constantly trying to connect and failing to do so. I’m on au, and all other apps work fine when this one doesn’t. The Japanese version works a bit better, but this English version is useless. This is all in addition to the overcrowded busy layout typical of Japanese apps.

Very disappointing update (Ver 3.0+) no longer carries useful features

What used to be a surprisingly useful app, carrying specialized features that only the JR system would have access to (detailed delay information, crowdedness & inside temperature information of the Yamamoto Line, and specific train location among other things) has now turned into just another train routing app that is no more useful than the plethora of copycat apps out there. If you need an accurate metro navigation app in Japan, try Navitime’s Japan Travel app. It’s really a disappointment that JR has stopped carrying such useful features, especially ahead of the 2020 Olympics. Here’s hoping they change their mind very soon...
