Great potential!

When I first opened this app question, I was excited by the organization and great information it provides. The destinations are well explained, and directions are given. Also the feature that allows you to add favorites is very helpful. I also love that nearby destinations are given.

It is a little bit annoying that the app has to reload every time I switch to another window and come back. Also, when I add favorites and go back to look at my favorites page, there are other things there that I didn't add. My last suggestion is to make the links active for the websites of destinations so I don't have to go and type them into my browser myself.

It seems like maybe this app has been abandoned... If so, I would highly suggest coming back to it! I think it has a lot of potential. Five stars if those things are fixed!

A must for a trip to Shanghai

The taxi directions makes your life easier to move around, the only problem is hotels are limited I know its almost impossible to add all hotels in SH but at least if you could manually added would be a perfect app,

Great app

I really like how the information is organized and the ability to add things to a favorites folder. Also the translations of the address into Chinese for taxi drivers is great!
