The app has a companion app to make your journeys even better, which may be installed by selecting the "More Enquiries" option.
Note: 'Launch Map'- launches the default android 'Maps' application which can show the exact location of the train on Google Maps. Please note: this will work only if the 'Maps' application and location features are available on your device; these are pre-installed on most android phones and tablets.
Train status information shown is from the National Train Enquiry system - http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in
Permission required (only in pre-KitKat devices):
Photos/Media/Files - This is for accessing the external storage, where time tables and PNR statuses are saved offline.
