I actually live in Sapporo, so here's my advice: you can get as much information from google maps.
It only includes 9 points of interest (as shown in the main menu screenshot), and some of those are very general locations of food courts, etc.
I also tried searching for "attractions", as another screenshot suggested. It gives a list of 8 items (same results as their screenshot shows). At the bottom of the results you can tap to load more, but it just gives you the same 8. None of these items have any real information attached than their address.
Not sure where they're getting the "thousands" of places and whatnot in their app description.
Online search did not work very well; usually it just loads the google home page.
Offline map generally works, but again, you'll have to search and bring your own info about places or addresses and save it to the map ahead of time; more or less duplicating google maps, except this has a slightly less featured interface.
I really don't understand the point of this app; are they planning to add hundreds/thousands of points of interest soon?
Zero offline info, no ability to add locations, and online search crashes the app. Easier to navigate the city with a map in a foreign language. Can I get a refund?!
