I've been developing this app since 2010. 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."

Customer Reviews

Trust this app!

We used this app all the time during our Shanghai trip, but the funny thing is the one time we didn't trust it, we were wrong. In Shanghai, some line transfers require you to leave the station to switch trains -- big inconvenience. The app said we should go out of our way two stops to switch, but I ignored it. Well, if we had done that then we wouldn't have had to leave the station in the rain! So download this app and just believe what it says when it tells you the best routes.

App isn't keeping up with other free apps

Wow!! Loved this app until a coworker showed me the light! Another app which you can find on your own, is much better in virtually every way that I can find anyway. My biggest complaint of this app is that every time I need to go to Pudong it won't give me the 'quickest route' option using the Maglev to and from Pudong. Why bother showing the Maglev on the map if your transfer bot in your coding won't account for it? Other things like less popular trams and train lines with limited distances aren't shown at all but they do exist and connect directly with a few metro stations.

It's just unfair

I purchased this app long time ago and have been using it for years until recently I tried to install it on my new iPhone. Why do I have to pay for the so-called VIP mode which offers exactly the same functions I've been using for years. Do I get a refund for losing the prior version of the app? That's unfair and disgusting.
