Our Latest Smartphone App Release and Cheapest Fare FinderMarch 20, 2014
New to the App Store and Google Play store this week are the latest versions of the National Rail Enquiries iPhone and Android apps. The apps now include information from Twitter and Transport for London.
Our Twitter accounts currently have 340k followers and our Twitter team is available 24/7 to provide the latest disruption information and to answer any disruption queries. We have now added into our app, the latest Twitter feeds.
Our app now includes Twitter information for each of our Twitter accounts which include our main @nationalrailenq as well as those for the individual train operating companies. To access the individual train operator’s feeds, simply click the Twitter button from the “More” menu and select the train operator you travel with. The app will remember which account you prefer.
Another great feature in our latest release is we now include Transport for London travel information. You can view whether there is disruption on the underground lines or other London transport for today, later or over the weekend. To see this in action, choose London from the “More” menu button.
Over the past few months, we have added some great new features on our smartphone apps and we’d love to know what you think and if there is anything else you would like to see. You can suggest an idea on our Community Forum
We’ve got a topic on the forum at the moment asking for your opinions on how the railway uses Twitter, you can join in the conversation by adding your comments to this topic.
