Ratings and Reviews
Lost in the subway
Got super stoked on this app and was flying to Tokyo the next day. When I got to Narita I went to the train used the app to figure out where I needed to go..... Then fail half the stations we stopped on we're not on the map... None of the KS line was there so I had no clue when to get off..... I got off early only to get on but once I got to the JR line it got worse because I managed to get on the wrong train after asking for help and using the app to show a worker where I was trying to go...... Good thing taxis are around because It was getting late and I need to find my hotel. Not travel further away. If you have cell service on your phone this would be great. But relying on the free wifi to help you is a total fail.
Absolute must for Tokyo Metro!
On my first day in Tokyo I had quite a misadventure travelling in circles trying to navigate the metro upon leaving Haneda Airport, effectively killing 2 hours. When I finally found my apartment I found out this app and it is a lifesaver! It’s perfect in every way, it shows you what stations are closest, how long the trains take, everything! Since downloading the app I haven’t had a single problem getting to where I needed to be. I wholeheartedly suggest this app and I hope everyone who worked on it gets a promotion, this app is phenomenal!
Very Good App
I went to Tokyo in May 2018. As I was planning for the trip, I read about this app and downloaded it. I downloaded many apps for my trip. Hands down, this was the most valuable of all the apps I downloaded. As long as you know the name of the attraction you want to visit, the app will tell you how to get there. You can also find bigger hotels using the app. If you’re going to Tokyo, this is a must have app.
