Beyond a trainwreck

I’m writing my first ever app review after a decade of having an iPhone because of how bewildered I am at how much a simple metro map-app could drop the ball so much.

Because the app should have INCREDIBLY simple functionality, I’ll explain its shortcomings in as simple terms as I can.

It has just COMPLETELY wrong route timings. Sometimes up to 40 minutes off the mark.
It struggles to find an accurate route between two places.
It will often try and send you in the wrong direction to make utterly redundant connections.
And don’t even TRY to use “closest station to landmark” search results.

I popped in Jamsil stadium, and the app attempted to try and send me an hour in the completely different direction. Luckily I smelt something off and managed to save myself an afternoon.

Weirdly, If I’m not mistaken, this is the same company that puts together metro apps for the London tube and a whole bunch of subways across the globe. Because those ones seem to work just fine.

I guess they have a set of parameters and try to plug google maps api’s into a framework to make a quick buck. Because I can promise you, no one who has touched this app has ever step foot close to Seoul.

You’re best off getting a paper map.

Very outdated

This app may give you the wrong option- you could transfer 3 times(which is the minimum), this application tells you that should transfer 5 times which takes longer, and is unnessesary. Hope the developers update the information.

Developer Response ,

The app should provide a "fast" and "simple" option, unless these options are the same. The fast option may require more changes but should still be faster overall. However, if the app has given you an incorrect or bad route please email as this is something we would like to look in to.
