For UK commuters who use the train a lot, thetrainline for iPhone is one of those must have apps, and today it has been updated to finally support the 4-inch display on the iPhone 5. Better still, we're told that the ability to have your tickets sent straight to your phone is coming soon.

Finally fitting the iPhone 5 display properly is pleasing, but it's what's to come that's really interesting. There's no mention of how the tickets will be sent to your iPhone, though we can only hope that it happens through Passbook integration. But, for regular train users this is sure to be of interest, though it means an end to inserting your ticket in the barriers to exit the station.

The last time this app was updated was way back in November 2012, so we're certainly overdue. Also included in todays update are improved station lists, and an improved journey search that lets you use trains that have already departed -- perhaps even with you on it. It's also been given a little bit of spit and polish, and refreshed the design a little. I buy all my train tickets through thetrainline, so I'm really excited about getting my tickets sent to my iPhone down the line. How about you?
