A must-have for everyone who travels a lot with train, bus, ferry or other means of transportation.
How does it work?
The first thing you do with "Fahrplan", is to select the desired source. You can choose from: bahn.de (Germany), öbb.at (Austria), rejseplanen.dk (Denmark), sbb.ch (Switzerland), 131500.com.au (Australia), reiseinfo.no (Norway). Some sources also gives full or limited information for other countries - like sbb.ch which can be used in Italy or France.
|Choose between those sources|
It's easy to set up the itinerary by first choosing departure station, arrival station, date, time and means of transportation. In case you are totally lost, you can obtain the closest bus/train station with GPS.
|Define your journey / select means of transportation / choose a departure time|
The application shows a very detailed overview of your journey once your departure time is chosen. You are told you where to change trains at indicated platforms. "Fahrplan" even gives you the possibility to save your trip to Calendar - a very nice idea!
|Get more results by adding a comma (like London, ) / Overview of your journey / Departures from a certain place|
The application's second main function is to get an overview of departures from a certain place at a certain time. This way you can for example find out what transportation are leaving Munich central station at a certain time.
Get it from Nokia Store
I've been using "Fahrplan" since it's beta version, having tested and used it in several countries. It works very reliable and after month of use I got about 3 results which were not satisfying or wrong. It's without doubt the most valuable itinerary application in Nokia Store and whenever you're lost in a foreign place - ask "Fahrplan", it might bring you home.
