Sell mobile and invest in iPhone for 'easy train travel'
2 November 2010 — 3:56 PM
Regular train users who dream of it being a little easier to buy tickets may find their wish comes true if they sell their current mobile and instead invest in an Apple iPhone.
That is because use of the revolutionary model opens the possibility of accessing an app launched last month by thetrainline.com.
Since its release ten days ago, the app has been downloaded more than 800,000 times, making it a firm favourite with commuters and leisure travellers alike.
It will shortly be available to Nokia, BlackBerry and Android customers, meaning its benefits can be enjoyed by all users who switch to a smartphone.
The app allows people to save time and buy tickets quickly and easily, as well as offering journey mapping.
Indeed, the route finder feature has been employed more than a million times, helping the function become one of the top five travel apps in the iTunes Store.
In other app news, Orange this week promised the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which it is now stocking, will offer direct links to features such as its two-for-one cinema tickets offer.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you travel by train a lot, this new app might be just the thing for you. Why not upgrade to a new mobile with this new technology? You could even trade-in your old handset for cash."
