Make sense of the rails with this brilliantly laid-out app
Trainline Tickets Review
by on January 12, 2011
The Trainline Tickets app is a masterclass on how to make slick BlackBerry apps that don’t look like the system software.
The menus are smooth and easy to navigate no matter which control method you use. When you select something, it expands quickly to show you the options. It’s a brilliant way of making the most of the available screen space on Curve and Bold handsets.
Everything is represented with understandable icons, along with descriptions. Finding stations is simple with a QWERTY keyboard, though the app is still keen to keep things easy by remembering your recent stations and even journey searches.
We particularly like the way the timetables are presented, with the prices hovering nearby in ascending order.
Booking tickets is just a simple case of typing in your card details and making a note of the number if it’s a ticket you need to pickup (electronic tickets are available on supported routes). You can just type in the security code from the back of your card for repeat purchases, rather than put in the whole number again.
For regular train travellers, this is an excellent app. The only thing it’s missing is live delay/cancellation information, but we can forgive that.
