    "I use Amtrak quite often and thought the Amtrak app would be useful for me. It ends up the app is not very good. It has a really bad lag time, which is frustrating. I have not enjoyed using this app and find that it has made my Amtrak experience less enjoyable. I do not recommend this solution."
