I am not one for using Amtrak so this app does not offer me a lot of value, but if you travel with Amtrak it would only make sense to use this app. I would enjoy having the ability to purchase tickets without having to carry around a cumbersome laptop or having to call and speak to someone, so I can see some big benefits to having this app.
