    Didn’t know that Android got an app for the Indian rail services of govt. Pretty good one. What else than the status of trains and their running is given in the app?

    I liked this app, but I have few suggestion.
    1 once search results comes, we have to navigate horizontal scroll for looking the complete results
    2. “Titles are missing” while we do vertical scrolling for looking search results.
    3. Train Running Status– I am looking for a search option for a given train name(some thing like if you type East coast it should bring up running status of the train which are all the stations it is passed at what time and rest…

    If you folks looked at the app “Indian Train status” for I phone which is more looks like realistic

    Indian Railways have realised the importance of customer services.

    This is a good beginning.

    Railways can do a lot more to improve customer services and continue with such services.
