Works fine

Jradi

App works fine, it overcomes barriers to using WiFi in Japan. While there are lots of WiFi hotspots, they only work if you have a local carrier. This app helps overcome that, it’s only for tourists, so download before you come over. It’s finicky to get working, you need to change carrier settings. Remember what you’re doing because you have to remove that profile when you get home or your phone won’t work in the states. I always forget how to do it and when I land stateside I have the headache of trying to research the solution without an internet connection. Same thing when in Japan, you can’t use WiFi to download this - chicken and egg problem. That’s why you need to get it before you come over.

Doesn’t work and is sketchy

This app probably violates the TOS

Be aware of tracking your move!

Yoko’s iPad

I am extremely disappointed with this app and mostly be aware of unwanted tracking device, which might be installed on your device. Here is my story and please form your opinion based on your own research as well. When I arrived at the train station to obtain my JR Pass, there were several people at the station strongly soliciting to install wifi access throughout Japan and assist installing the app. First, I thought I would need wifi access throughout the trip, so I obtained one. Then when I first tried to use, it did not work. And it did not work at all throughout my trip. What was worse that, I had noticed that every new place we visited I would get the message from Travel Japan, which I realized that they were tracking where I was visiting. Therefore, I had no wifi access during the trip from Travel Japan and at the same time, they were tracking where I was. Even though the trip was just leisure travel, I am not too fond of a company or a government tracking where I am visiting and it is upsetting that they pretend to offer a great service for free, but actually install a tracking device as a result. I could be wrong but that was my experience. You will see that after posting my review, there would be a contradicting review indicating it. However, the truth is that I did not have wifi access during my trip, not even once.
