    Useful App, love the ability to place live tiles but I wish I could plan a journey and then pin a live tile for the journey so I only saw the trains relevant to me rather than having 3 live tiles to pin for my commute!
  • by dennis 17/09/2014
    Will give 5 stars 🌃 if live tiles could refresh. It would also be great if your train 🚄 of choice could be pinned to the start screen for updates of that train's time throughout the day.
