Rail journeys have just got a little easier...
Eurostar Trains Review
by Kieran Alger on September 6, 2011
In lieu of British Airways releasing their own app, other travel companies have started to follow suit and the latest comes from cross-channel train company Eurostar.
Costing nothing, the Eurostar app allows you to book trains, check times, and use mobile-ticketing, all in an effort to make your trip that little bit more manageable.
Focusing first on the home screen you’re greeted with visual simplicity itself consisting of a series of sliders which let you select where you travelling from, where to, when you want to leave and whether it’s a return ticket.
Using it is an absolute dream, the sliding options allows you to construct a journey in seconds and then once you’ve selected what you want it’ll bring up train times, prices and which ticket-type you’d like.
Once that’s done, you can use the billing profile you’ve previously set-up to pay for the tickets, leaving you with the option of a paper ticket collection or a mobile ticket in the form of a QR code which can be scanned at the barriers.
Considering it’ll be used mostly by commuters you can tell that the designers have put the customer demographic in mind, something which more productivity apps should bare in mind.
It’s a rare example of an app that although may not be doing anything exciting, makes what could be a mundane and complex task simple, intuitive and stress-free.
