- With Walking Routes you can see the shortcuts between two stations where it is closer to walk than use the metro.

Great app

Its being 1 year since the last update, that makes me sad since its really and easy to use app and map, compare to other route planers in my opinion.

Hope someday Mapway retake this app and take it back to the top as it is supposed to be ^^ keep the good work mapway!

Travel with ease

I don't always use the route planner function, because google maps gives more precise directions, but this app is a godsend. It keeps me from looking like a tourist because i don't have to study the posted maps, I can discreetly check my direction with this. The maps are clear and in both Chinese and English, so I need to ask a local, I simply change the language. I've gotten so confident with traveling now that I have many of the routes memorized. Everyone get this app!
