National Rail Enquiries announces a new app for iPhone & AndroidMay 1, 2012
I’ve got some exciting news! For the last few months the team have been working on an exciting project to bring all the best bits of National Rail Enquiries onto your smartphone. Today, I’m delighted to announce that National Rail Enquiries for Android& iPhone have been launched in the Google Play Store & App Store.
In this first issue of the apps we have a host of great tools which I hope will make your travelling by train a bit easier. Key features include –
- In app alerting – you can subscribe to be told when your train is >5 mins late (or other preferences you choose.
- Or why not pin your train? If you pin a train it will stay on your home screen throughout the train’s journey, no more having to hunt the train down via the live arrivals board.
As you’d expect you can also do your journey plans and live departure queries and it uses the same great information that’s available via our website and other channels.
National Rail Enquiries is funded by the train operating companies, who are in turn funded by you the traveller. It was therefore important that we put together the project using the most cost-efficient model. The apps are available in an ad-supported free version, or you can upgrade for a one-off charge to an ad-free version. We will continue to provide our information feeds to our existing licencees so any other apps you’ve downloaded in the past will continue to work. For information about licencing our information, please see this page on our website.
More info on these apps is available on our website.
