Good app

The list of items included is robust, and the descriptions, while fairly short, are very useful. Great not just for walking around, but also for planning what you want to see during whatever length of stay you have (you can assemble your own walks). Includes several places you wouldn't find in ordinary tourist guides.

Fantastic, except for where it's not.

This thing is really saving my trip to Kyoto. It works great offline, so I don't have to run up huge data bills. I came to Kyoto a bit last minute and right after another trip to see family, so I was ill-prepared for this one, I knew there were temples here and it was going to be interesting, but nothing more. I started out this morning just willing to give this thing a shot, and had a great day doing most of the first City Orientation tour. Awesome.

There are some issues. The biggest is that on the map the icons at the top (to show subway, bus, food, etc.) are not working properly, so that they don't scroll properly, making them very hard to use.

Kyoto gps app

This app us totally useless! It does nothing as promised. It only gives stock photos if the sites and a city map (two things you can get must places for free). There is no turn by turn navigation as a gps system should do. There us no interactive features at all. When I arrived in Kyoto I could not bookmark my starting point so I could get back to where I started. The direction list made no attempt to translate the kanji. It's supposed to be a guide for foreigners - why give directions and list in kanji? I am literally stuck in Kyoto now with no way of getting around. Waste if time and money!! If I could, I would give negative star for this. They are just lying stealing people's.
