FEATURED IN 'THE INDEPENDENT' – 10 BEST COMMUTER GEAR
"For the train traveling commuter there's simply no app as streamlined and user-friendly as Rail Commute" by knowyourmobile.com
RailCommute is an app for UK rail users and commuters.
The app allows you to find your next train, its platform and any delays at the touch of a single button. Once you've caught your train, RailCommute lets you tell your chosen contacts (partner/friends/colleagues) what time you are due to arrive via text and email as well as Facebook and Twitter. Your train is then ‘tagged’ so you can follow your progress en-route. View Twitter updates from your rail provider within the app – which when things go wrong is a great way of knowing what’s happening! New feature allows you to claim compensation on your ticket for delayed trains.
RailCommute is designed for users who know their route and do not require a journey planning function.
**NEW FEATURE - Claim compensation on delayed trains. Claw back some of that season ticket!!**

IMPORTANT NOTES – PLEASE READ:

– The app does not have a journey planning facility and is for PRE-PLANNED JOURNEYS OF NO MORE THAN TWO LEGS PER ROUTE (you can add additional saved routes for longer journeys if you wish).
– The app requires a data connection to function. It's performance will be slower if this connection is weak, especially if your phone has 'connected' to a free wireless network (such of BT Openzone), but you have not paid for the service. This will affect ALL internet based apps and websites and we recommend in these circumstances you turn off your wireless and use your phone signal instead.
