iTunes link: thetrainline – Free
When you’re down the boozer and debating whether you should have that last pint or not, the crucial decider is often knowing what time the last train leaves. Well, at least it us for us! This is where thetrainline comes in. It lets you quickly check train times across the UK rail network via a quick and easy to use interface.
Just hit the Plan Journey button, input the start and end points of your route and the app will return a list of upcoming train times complete with the number of changes required, the duration of the trip and the cost of tickets. The app has recently been updated to version 2, which brings with it the ability to order tickets without having to leave the app. Previously, if you wanted to buy tickets you had to do so via the website.
There are other apps that do much the same job, but this one is free and provides all the information you need.
