|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2 Things Which makes your app ==POWERLESS== ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~ 1. RELIABILITY ~~~~~~~~~~ ex. @trainav.stn ju hw your app reply: NOTHING railway reply: train no 24888 Conclusion: I can't trust on your app. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. COMPLETENESS ~~~~~~~~~~~~ (1) No information about a Particular Train ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Other apps: @train app reply: Complete Information about that Train your app: No Such Option (2) No Information about train fare ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ex. Other apps: @train.fare SBC CSTM your app: No Such Option However @train has stopped working these days, it was one of the powerfull apps developed on txtweb.com (3) Cannot Check PNR Status ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ex. other apps: @tran.pnr your app: NO Such Option Conclusion: You have done more than 60%, but 40% is yet to be done. THESE THINGS RESTRICT YOUR APP FROM BECOMING A SUBSTITUTE of www.indianrail.gov.in Dont ignore, if you can add these options in your app, you can make this app the most powerful app on the txtweb. Your work shows you have the guts, and you can do that. ABOUT ME: ~~~~~~~ When you sent sms for suggestion. I was making up my mind to tell you all these things neatly and cleanly without any doubts. Finally I got the time, and write this feedback. So don't treat just a simple feedback. I use your app very frequently. I want to see your app, the most powerful app & a substitute of www.indianrail.gov.in and 131 premium sms service. The rest is upto you. What you have to do? Implement the feedback or not.|
