I've been developing this app for 5 years. Upgrading to VIP helps support future development of the app. VIP users get additional features, like NO ADS, accurate prices for every journey, first/last train times, offline street maps, tips at every station, and a general warm fuzzy feeling.


CNN Travel: "These maps are very easy on the eye and simple to navigate. They work offline and also include free updates of stations that have yet to be completed, operating hours and schedules."

Lonely Planet: "Easy to use, up to date and work offline. Very handy, especially when they've run out of paper maps at the stations."

We'd love to hear your comments and suggestions on ways to improve the app. Please contact us via, as we can't respond to comments left in the reviews.

Never get lost again. I've tried them all! With this one "user friendly" enter where you start and want to go, then details, then send to picture (or text your self) and you are home free! Don't get caught with no location or signal in terminal so you don't know where to get on or off! Believe me I've done it a few times using other apps! Love it!

Does not work well

Problem using this APP is that when you try to “TURN iPHONE” to show taxi driver the address, nothing happens. This feature used to work on earlier versions, but not on this version!

Paid for this app, but still have ads ?!

Had to download again on a new phone - now have ads everywhere ! Tried to restore purchases, nothing happens, very disappointed :(

Otherwise great app, had it for four years , very happy to see offline exit numbers are back!
