I've been developing this app for 9 years. Upgrading to VIP helps support future development of the app. VIP users get additional features, like NO ADS, accurate prices for every journey, first/last train times, offline street maps, tips at every station, and a general warm fuzzy feeling.


CNN Travel: "These maps are very easy on the eye and simple to navigate. They work offline and also include free updates of stations that have yet to be completed, operating hours and schedules."

Lonely Planet: "Easy to use, up to date and work offline. Very handy, especially when they've run out of paper maps at the stations."

This app is all you need to get around Shanghai

This app is incredible. We just moved to Shanghai, and it was a lifesaver as we figured out the metro. The best feature is planning a journey: just tap entry and exit stations and the app tells you exactly where to go—particularly helpful when the stations are crowded. It was so helpful, we downloaded the app for Bangkok, and it was just as valuable there.

Works offline!

This is the only map you’ll need for Shanghai! Upgrade for $1.99 for the VIP version. It has pronunciations for each stop along with street maps in both Google and Apple with all the exit locations, and operating times! Best of all it can be used offline. Since I will only be using WiFi while there, this is a HUGE selling point for me. Couldn’t be happier with this app!

Pls Update Metro Line

This app was great when I first found it on the web page.As the tv news said that Line 9 stretched to the new station, pls help update the app if the developer has some spare time!
