Ratings and Reviews
Just got back from Tokyo. I have to say the app is very good. If you get lost and find a train station. Enter in the name and your destination and bam. It tells you which line to take and where to connect. The only confusing part was, I wish it had more information like which track number to take or the last station that line is stopping at. We got lost and spent almost 1 hours going one direction, only to find out we were going the wrong direction and wasting more time back tracking.
So maybe in the a future update. Track numbers to take or maybe a minimap of the direction the train will travel so we don't go the wrong direction and having to back track.
Make a Kansai version please!
This app is simple, effective, and DOES NOT USE DATA! Being independent of any kind of network is a huge huge huge plus! This app is good! Having map integration would make it great.
Please make a Kansai Area version. Or at least an Osaka version! My father lives in Osaka and I visit him often so that would be a very big help and I would be willing to pay for that!
Not bad for visitors of Tokyo
This app is pretty nifty if you are coming to Japan for a vacation or plan to stay for a few months. But other than that I prefer the free Japanese app that tells you the time as well as if there are any delays on the train.
Great app though! Looking forward to more updates. Who knows... This may become the app I prefer
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
