Out of date

Hasn't been updated in a while. Text is not optimized for a retina screen and is hard to read. Many of the urls listed are also broken.

Very little information for the cost

There is very little value to this app, especially for $4.99. I would not advise anyone to buy it. While the Wallpaper magazine itself covers Japan well, this app does not reflect that. A better app, which has the same goals, is the one from Super Future.

Since this app cost $3.99 and has the air of quality associated with the Wallpaper brand, I assumed I was purchasing a well edited and useful guide to Tokyo. Unfortunately, glaringly missing from this app are maps of the city... as a first time visitor the app was essentially useless as I had no idea where any of their suggested points of interest were located. The app is well designed typographically and visually (would not expect anything less from Wallpaper), well written and I assume well edited. But seeing as it's a travel guide AND it's sponsored by an advertiser (Rolex) the absence of a map(s) is almost insulting: where is the added value to justify the $3.99 when the advertiser already covered your costs, Wallpaper?
