Why this app is the highest rated train app?
Spotting Train Accurately
Get live train status of Indian Railways anytime, anywhere. This feature can work without internet or GPS when you are travelling as it uses cell tower information to find the location. You can share current train location with your friends & family via the share feature. You can also set Alarm to wake you up at a fixed time before your railway station arrives.
Offine Train Schedules
The train app has the complete Indian Railways and IRCTC timetable offline. You don't have to know train number or names. Smart search allows you to use train source & destination or partial train names even with spelling errors.
Coach Layout and Platform numbers
Get information on coach position and seat/berth layout before you board the train. Also shows platform numbers for boarding and intermediate stations wherever available.
Seat Availability and Fares
Check seat availability and fares of IRCTC. Shows seat availability and status for all coach classes for several trains simultaneously. The app covers Konkan Railway, Central Railway (CR), Northern Railway (NR), Southern Railway (SR), Eastern Railway (ER), Western Railway (WR) and all other Indian railway zones.
Dynamic PNR status
Check latest PNR status and predictions. You can either enter your PNR or app can automatically scan your SMS from IRCTC. You can then receive automated alerts on changes in PNR Status and train schedules. The train app also allows you to send your PNR status to your friends via the app with share feature.
Super efficient in Battery, Data Usage and App size
The main aspect of this app is that key features like finding train locations and schedules can work offline without Internet or GPS, and so it is very efficient both in battery as well as data usage. The app-size is also relatively small, though it has lots of Indian train information offline.
