The Hangzhou Taxi Guide is filled with thousands of big, bold-faced addresses in Chinese that show drivers exactly where you want to go, perfect for those visiting the city, or for those that call Hangzhou home. Featured by BBC World, Gizmodo, and at the Apple Store in Beijing, HoodHot's Taxi Guides will help you get there. Now with fully cached Offline Maps that can be accessed anywhere!
Lost in Hangzhou? Well, you're not alone - we speak Mandarin and we still find it hard to get around! Taxi drivers don’t speak English, and you don’t know the Chinese address for the restaurant you wanted to go to. Add on the fact that Hangzhou is constantly changing and you soon realize—you’re lost! That's why we created the Taxi Guide series – directories filled with big, bold-faced addresses in Chinese that show the driver exactly where you want to go.
✓ Taxi Cards: Just hold up your iPhone - the big, bold addresses in Chinese tell the driver exactly where you want to go. No more charades and no more getting lost!
✓ Offline Maps: Ever find yourself wishing for a map but didn't have or want to pay for a data connection? Your wish has been granted - Hangzhou Taxi Guide now has fully cached, zoomable, scrollable Offline Maps! And if you have a device with a GPS chip (iPhone or iPad with 3G radio) it will display your current location as well.
✓ Search: Want to find a specific place? Search for it! With over 3000 locations and hundreds of hotels, it's probably in here! If not, let us know, and we'll include it in the next release.
✓ Distance Sorting: Sort the locations by distance to quickly find things around you.
✓ CardShare. Friends envious of your iPhone and that you have the Guangzhou Taxi Guide? At least you can share the Chinese address with them via Email, SMS, or just by copying and pasting it into your program of choice.
✓ Custom Cards. Ask your local friends to input your private addresses and have every card you need with you at all times!
✓ Notes. Trying to remember why you love that hutong shop on the corner? Make a note of it and you'll never forget.
✓ Integrated MapView so you don't have to exit the app to see smooth zoomable, scrollable Google Maps!*
✓ Integrated WebView so you can read view reviews from the web from inside the app!*
And don’t worry; it doesn’t need an internet connection, so you won’t get dinged with roaming fees. (*Please note that mapping and internet browsing of reviews require an internet connection and will use data). We'll be providing constant updates, since the app is offline and Hangzhou changes so quickly, so stay tuned, add your hotel to the favorites, and enjoy Hangzhou!
