Subway map

A subway map should have option for overlaying streets local to stops. Also nice to have is lookup places of interest - like hotels - and name the nearest line/Stop.
Also, the names of the stops in ticket machines, when translated into English, is NOT the same as the translation to English used in the map or on the trains - this is confusing!!😄

Fantastic app overall

I love this app! Works great in almost all cases. It is easy to use if Mandarin is not your first language. It gives you both the stops you need to take and a nice route map. You can search by subway station or by attractions you want to get to. The only improvement I would like to see is more attractions (such as the Silk Market and some of the more famous hutongs) listed. It's great and free. The ads are a bit annoying but if you use it enough, it's worth paying for ad free.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for reviewing. We can look at adding more attractions in to the route planner for future updates. Your feedback has been passed on to the development team. Thank you again. :)

Great subway map!

This app is the most accurate free subway map of Beijing that I have downloaded. The feature that allows you to find the fastest and shortest route is very convenient and It's t
Great to have both the pinyin and 汉字 map. The only downside is they have been slow to update the recent openings of line 6 and the other half of line 10. If they keep on the updates then it will once again be the best subway app!
