Blank, no info. Useless I click on journey planner, select my desired stops, (and they show up with next 4 station stops, but if I select set journey preferences to change time (check for a train service that works with my desired arrival time in a few days) the info is just blank, it goes to the next page and has the preference bar at the top, and the question box and search button but no info, no data just a blank white page.  Same with next 5. it sometimes flashes the info but it quickly goes blank.

No timetable information The only way to search for a given time is to use the journey planner rather than being able to browse the timetables for a possibly distant time. Without the timetables it is kind of useless. As an update I was emailed by PTV customer support outside of Google play regarding my rating. I do not remember agreeing to Google giving out my email address, there is something about addresses being given for a purchased app though.
