Great app! It's very easy to use. It has many useful features. My favorite is that it gives you your current location, and you can see where you are in realation to whatever station you are looking for with google maps.

One suggestion though. I really wish the makers of this app made a map for all the trains in the greater Tokyo area, inclduding JR, Tokyo Metro and privately owned lines. If there was a map that included every station and line, there's no doubt in my mind that it would be the best app available for navigating through the Tokyo, Yokohama and its suburbs.

Extremely helpful


The route function is great, it may not always provide the best routes, but it gives you a good idea and a jumping point to start your own planning rather than having to randomly search the map. Wish it wad possible to zoom in and out of the map when in route mode though... Also don't bother paying for the POI add-ons. They're basically useless.

Useless outside of central Tokyo


This is a good app for travel within the Tokyo subway network. It would be better if it included fare info. Station maps would also help.

Anyway, this app is totally worthless for any travel outside the Tokyo subway network and Yamanote line. It won't even help you get to Narita.

An alternative is Jorudan, a free Internet service which works for trains all over Japan.
