Overall in our opinion, the best feature of this APP is suggestions on alternate options to get confirmed tickets. These options include to book tickets from earlier station or to the farther station or to change trains in the onward stations. As most of the people in India travelling in busy routes always find it difficult to get confirmed tickets. This APP is very useful for them.
