Life saver

As a foreigner who was studying in Korea for 4 months and couldn’t speak or understand Korean fluently, this app saved me and all my friends lives. It made traveling so easy. I wish we had this in New York City. It tell you everything you need to know about how many stops and where to go in the subway station. Very easy to figure out. I was traveling on my own everyday and was never worried. I highly highly recommend this. I’m not sure why it has such a low rating. This app is such a life saver
