    Quality!
  • by Matthew 25/09/2014
    Simple and brilliant
  • by Daraius 25/09/2014
    Good interface, appears to be reliable, needs more features like maybe favourite trains to alert if delays on these. The auto refresh does not work resulting in the info displayed in a tile showing dated info. Would have given another star if auto refresh worked
