Ratings and Reviews
A MUST for travelling through Japan!
I cannot recommend this app highly enough! We used Japan Travel everyday for 3weeks from Tokyo to Hiroshima and back. It was infallible for everything from subway, trams and for us, as Australian travellers, the JR pass! It never let us down and saved us quite a few times!! Highly accurate. The only thing to be aware of, is that the app defaults to stations nearby, so when you are organising in advance (and not necessarily geographically close to the station), you really need to know the name of the station you want to look up. I would give Japan Travel 10 STARS!!!!
Detailed but frustrating bug
Very detailed app with all the information you could want as a tourist down to which platform and car you want to get on.
Unfortunately it has a fatal bug for me. It CONSTANTLY keeps popping up the iPhone compass calibration wheel whenever in the search screen. Every 2 seconds or so it pops up and makes using the app almost impossible.
Better Apps Compared to the Rest
Japan's rail system can be confusing for a foreigner. This was by the better app we used to figure out where we were going. Extremely helpful when navigating around Tokyo with platform number details.
