We've all experienced the trauma. Getting to the train station to find a massive queue at the ticket booth with only five minutes left until your train choo-choos away from the platform.
Now that misery of tapping your feet and praying the line moves fast could be over with online train ticket service Raileasy launching the first app enabling downloaders to buy tickets directly from within the application.
The new app, which is available on Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms from 12th October, will allow 100 per cent secure payments for train tickets.
The free-to-download application will be taking on the Trainline iPhone app, which also offers timetables, journey planning and fare information, but without the capacity to securely pay for your tickets within the interface. Instead that app transfers the user the user to a web portal in order to make payment.
