In the mobile app planner I searched for trains between St. Moritz and Zermatt Switzerland. Several are listed but the Glacier Express is not identified by name. 
How can I differentiate the Glacier Express from others on this route?

You can always discern the Glacier Express because it is the only train to directly connect those two points, the only one labelled FT for Fast Train, and the only one to require reservation. As you may already know you can also do the whole route reservation-free with local trains as well if you like, which is actually slightly quicker, but you’ll need to change four times (at Visp or Brig, Andermatt, Disentis and Reichenau).

Hope that helps!
