Functional and accurate, but some annoying quirks. I use this app regularly, and I have always found it to be reliable and accurate. The information given is great, including platform number. 2 annoying things. 1. Unless you spell the station name absolutely correctly it just wont deliver. Recently I couldn't find information the station I was actually at. The spelling was spot on, but nothing. I had to search by GPS. When it located the station, I saw that this app substitutes "n" for "m". Very frustrating, and makes it impossible to search for certain stations when you have the very station name in front of you (unless you happen to know of this peculiarity) How about an update that can make "best guesses" based on your input. 2. It seems not to show routes with transfer times of less than a few minutes. Given the punctuality of the system here the is no need to omit trains with a 2 or three minute transfer wait, especially when many times those transfers are only different sides of the same platform. If the concern is for members of the public who have mobility issues, how about a simple "short transfer time" warning on the journey.

The 'clear' dropdown blocks all the other buttons and its annoying if you accidentally hit it it. Also the spelling of train stations is annoying, I keep having to look up spelling of train stations to see if there is a hyphen or space between letters.Ill be going back to jorudan because they use predictive text to find your station.

Premium price for broken feature The app works as expected to find routes, but it crashes every once in a while. The JR Pass search doesn't seem to work at all so you still have to uncheck the proper boxes in the detailed search. I would first try other free apps on the marketplace before spending 3 on this one.

Convenient The only improvement I would suggest is would to include the direction one should be heading towards if you aren't going to include the train and station schedules in the mobile version, otherwise perfect

Needs to allow for various spellings. Unless you can guess the correct one you're out of luck.
