Ratings and Reviews
Indispensable app for foreigners in Shanghai
This app does a fabulous job of making Shanghai easily accessible for foreigners, with listings for bars, restaurants, shopping and other attractions. It has an easy-to-use interface that helps you filter results and interacts well with the maps feature to help you either find things nearby or navigate to your location. (Some of the maps locations aren't perfect, though, and it's not always 100% up-to-date on closures or new openings, so don't become completely trusting!) Also, it will generate taxi cards for all of the locations, so you can easily show a taxi driver or passerby the Chinese info-- and it's also copyable, so easily pasted into a map, text message or wechat. All in all, highly recommended -- it will help open up the city in a convenient and user-friendly way.
Would be 5 stars but...
I really enjoy this app, it’s extremely helpful, but my favorites STILL aren’t popping up and when I search things it says “no results:(“ every time! Why?! 😭😭😭
I never take the time to write a review but I noticed these reviews are really outdated. I love this ap and I travel to Shanghai almost monthly. I couldn't live without this ap and the taxi directions. It could be enhanced with a map to show where the venue is, but I have had it for a year and never had a problem with it. Go buy it. Best money you could spend if you are going to Shanghai.
