Apart from the official app of IRCTC, there are a few other apps that can help you book train tickets. However, most users agree that booking train tickets through mobile are still a complex and time-consuming process. This inconvenience of booking train tickets through other mobile apps has made Trainman a popular way to book tickets on-the-go.

Five of the latest features of the Trainman app and how they work are discussed below-
1. Booking train tickets
While most train booking apps are 3rd party apps which generally redirect you to the IRCTC app for booking the tickets, Trainman is an official partner of the IRCTC. As a result, the app allows you to train ticket booking within minutes. With multiple secure online payment options, fare calculator, and easy cancellation, book train tickets on mobile were never easier.

Trains often run late and even get canceled, especially in the monsoon season. With the help of this app, commuters can check live status of the train to plan their journey accordingly.
What time the train would reach the departing station, major stations throughout the journey, and the expected time when the train would reach the destination are some of the most important details that one can easily find with the app.

4. Order Food in Train:
While Indian Railways are popular for a lot of things, the food served on the trains is certainly not one of those things. With this app in your mobile, you can easily order delicious food from restaurants and food joints and get it delivered on the train. Just place your order and select a station and the food would be delivered when the train reaches that station.
5. Journey Card:
Once you’ve booked your ticket through the Trainman app, a Journey Card would be created and displayed on the home screen of the app 24 before your journey. This journey card would have all the essential details like your PNR status, train status and more to keep you informed.
Moreover, if your ticket is still on the waiting list, it’d regularly check your PNR to keep you updated. From shopping, banking, to ordering food, we now use our mobile apps for a host of our daily activities.
