Journey problem Airport Express
by mchico98 on 2019/03/04 00:49
The route journey using airport express does not work. It just said this trip is not supported ; no money amount, and estimated time.
4 Stars + A Wish
by Hoping4Better2020 on 2019/02/15 12:47
The only thing preventing five stars is a wish that it had tighter integration with Maps.me in China.
Updating slow
by Shed216 on 2019/01/24 19:51
App is very poorly updated. New 2018 Beijing lines operating a month, still not reflected in app.
Confident in Beijing
by Dxeph on 2017/12/12 00:07
Thanks to this wonderful app I feel very confident navigating Beijing. The app can show English and Chinese names of stations. The planned route function slows me to estimate travel times.
Thank you!

It is very good app
Loved this app until....
by wayofthesith on 2016/10/18 03:34
I live in Beijing and the subway is my primary mode of transport. At first, this app was awesome. I used it regularly. I even supported the developer. But after the iOS 10 update, problems began occurring regularly. Line 13 never shows as a faster route, the "email us" option doesn't work, times between stations are very hit or miss (6-10 minutes off at some) and I'm also not a fan of having to upgrade for EACH CITY map I download. I'd love to alert the developer to the problem via another now but it seems the "rate this app" function is the only one that still works properly. A real shame as I've been telling everyone for over a year to download this app because it was the best.
I paid for the app a few years ago but developer wants more money now for full functionality
by Glamdrach on 2016/01/24 10:42
I paid for the full app a few years ago. Now the developer issued app for free and now requests more money to get functionality my paid version used to have. There is no restore purchase or recognition that I did pay for it. I have invoice and can prove to developer. Waiting for his reply.
Please keep it up to date
by Rodney A. on 2016/01/07 03:36
The Beijing subway system was changed nearly a month ago with no response from the developers of this app. Would rate 5 stars if updated regularly.
BEWARE NOT UPDATED FOR 2015
by Ma Ding Shu Shu on 2015/01/06 12:17
BEWARE this app does not have the new routes as of the end of December 2014. For example Line 15 now extends west beyond Wangjing West, but this app has line 15 stopping there.
Out of date
by Guy on the metro on 2015/01/06 04:30
The Beijing metro is growing fast this map is out of date.
Great and easy to use for first timers
by Pawtrey on 2014/10/17 23:57
Easy to follow. Quickly find the nearest station. You can flag where you will start/stop and receive info on the number of stops and time duration.
Works like a charm
by Don2010-1 on 2014/07/13 09:23
Just downloaded it and checked it out. Very well designed and intuitive. Does what you want it to do. Gives you an up-to-date subway map, incorporates your iPhone's GPS and map functions, includes local tips for each station fed in by users (some filtering or editing will be needed when these get too numerous). At two bucks, what's not to like?
Beijing Metro very helpful
by lawrenceuwg on 2014/04/25 03:16
This app has been applied numerous times getting us around Beijing. It has been used innumerable times in the two years we have lived in Beijing.
Almost perfect
by @mikediliberto on 2013/04/05 12:47
As someone that travels regularly in Asia, these apps are great. One thing is preventing me from giving it five stars: in previous versions you could touch a subway line and get a pop-up bubble telling you what line it is. I miss that; being color blind means the guide at the bottom does not really help me!
Great app! I use this daily
by Tpkinsl on 2012/12/25 09:21
Easy to read on an iPhone. Woks off line (so you can actually use it on the subway)!! Highly recommended Question: will you update it for the new line 6 opening this week?

Essential travel tool
by smushkat on 2011/12/26 14:43
I bought this one first for Beijing, then after seeing how useful it is (take the metro whenever possible - faster and less expensive than taxis), bought the Shanghai one too. Don't leave your hotel without it!
It works like a champ
by ZAX BRO on 2011/11/29 04:38
I have several of these apps and they all dork as advertised! Wish they made them for US cities.
Well Done!

Especially the route planner.
it does nothing ….
by bj110925 on 2011/09/25 13:01
I tried to use this app during many trips on the BJ subway. It does not show current location, closest stations, or position information. It is a basic static map of the BJ subway. No value that i could find.

Like it
by Texan in the jing on 2011/01/29 09:21
Great app, only thing it needs is diagrams of station exits like the ones posted in the stations. And no net access required to view them. I use this on an iPod and it would be nice if the app saved the views of maps I looked at so I can view them offline
Great--but two suggestions
by newyorkperson on 2010/12/29 14:06
This is obviously a great app, so I only have two suggestions: 1) It would be great if you could show the layout of each station or at least where the exits are (without having to connect to the internet) 2) It would be awesome if the timetable were adjusted to reflect long-term construction projects that affect the schedule...I know it's probably hard to reflect temporary daily changes (doing that would make this a 6 out of 5 stars), but at least having the long-term projects that go for a few months would be nice.
Works great
by 麦片的麦 on 2010/12/29 01:54
I live here and this is a handy app. No real complaints. It's nice how it will give you a route and the time it should take. A lot of other apps have this map but I've found this one by far to be the easiest to read and use.
Great app
by schroeders12 on 2010/12/14 10:08
Easily one of the best travel apps that I own for many reasons: 1. Very easy to use 2. Being able to map out your routes 3. Offline use 4. The customer service is amazing! Emailed them, and got a reply a few hours later Definitely recommend

Absolutely great app, even on an iPad. Graphics scale up quite nicely, and the built in street map view (internet required) is a real convenience. You can even hear a pronunciation of each station write in the app. So useful!

by AJJarrett on 2010/03/16 00:11
One thing is missing in this application, and this also applies to the Shanghai map too, there isn't a large view of the entire subway network. I would suggest that this is possible to do, and you can set it so that a person can view it when holding the iPhone horizontally.
BEST Beijing Subway app!!!

I live in Beijing and the subway is my primary mode of transport. At first, this app was awesome. I used it regularly. I even supported the developer. But after the iOS 10 update, problems began occurring regularly. Line 13 never shows as a faster route, the "email us" option doesn't work, times between stations are very hit or miss (6-10 minutes off at some) and I'm also not a fan of having to upgrade for EACH CITY map I download. I'd love to alert the developer to the problem via another now but it seems the "rate this app" function is the only one that still works properly. A real shame as I've been telling everyone for over a year to download this app because it was the best.

BEWARE this app does not have the new routes as of the end of December 2014. For example Line 15 now extends west beyond Wangjing West, but this app has line 15 stopping there.
Out of date
by Guy on the metro on 2015/01/06 04:30
The Beijing metro is growing fast this map is out of date.
Great and easy to use for first timers
by Pawtrey on 2014/10/17 23:57
Easy to follow. Quickly find the nearest station. You can flag where you will start/stop and receive info on the number of stops and time duration.
Works like a charm
by Don2010-1 on 2014/07/13 09:23
Just downloaded it and checked it out. Very well designed and intuitive. Does what you want it to do. Gives you an up-to-date subway map, incorporates your iPhone's GPS and map functions, includes local tips for each station fed in by users (some filtering or editing will be needed when these get too numerous). At two bucks, what's not to like?
Beijing Metro very helpful
by lawrenceuwg on 2014/04/25 03:16
This app has been applied numerous times getting us around Beijing. It has been used innumerable times in the two years we have lived in Beijing.
Almost perfect
by @mikediliberto on 2013/04/05 12:47
As someone that travels regularly in Asia, these apps are great. One thing is preventing me from giving it five stars: in previous versions you could touch a subway line and get a pop-up bubble telling you what line it is. I miss that; being color blind means the guide at the bottom does not really help me!
Great app! I use this daily
by Tpkinsl on 2012/12/25 09:21
Easy to read on an iPhone. Woks off line (so you can actually use it on the subway)!! Highly recommended Question: will you update it for the new line 6 opening this week?

If you move around the city from one side of it to the other this is a very useful app
Essential travel tool
by smushkat on 2011/12/26 14:43
I bought this one first for Beijing, then after seeing how useful it is (take the metro whenever possible - faster and less expensive than taxis), bought the Shanghai one too. Don't leave your hotel without it!
It works like a champ
by ZAX BRO on 2011/11/29 04:38
I have several of these apps and they all dork as advertised! Wish they made them for US cities.
Well Done!
by icetraveller on 2011/11/05 20:08
Especially the route planner.
it does nothing ….
by bj110925 on 2011/09/25 13:01
I tried to use this app during many trips on the BJ subway. It does not show current location, closest stations, or position information. It is a basic static map of the BJ subway. No value that i could find.

Updated and now app won't open on iphone iOS 3.0. Please fix.

Been using this app for a year... Nice to see the updated lines... Best so far...
Like it
by Texan in the jing on 2011/01/29 09:21
Great app, only thing it needs is diagrams of station exits like the ones posted in the stations. And no net access required to view them. I use this on an iPod and it would be nice if the app saved the views of maps I looked at so I can view them offline
Great--but two suggestions
by newyorkperson on 2010/12/29 14:06
This is obviously a great app, so I only have two suggestions: 1) It would be great if you could show the layout of each station or at least where the exits are (without having to connect to the internet) 2) It would be awesome if the timetable were adjusted to reflect long-term construction projects that affect the schedule...I know it's probably hard to reflect temporary daily changes (doing that would make this a 6 out of 5 stars), but at least having the long-term projects that go for a few months would be nice.
Works great
by 麦片的麦 on 2010/12/29 01:54
I live here and this is a handy app. No real complaints. It's nice how it will give you a route and the time it should take. A lot of other apps have this map but I've found this one by far to be the easiest to read and use.
Great app
by schroeders12 on 2010/12/14 10:08
Easily one of the best travel apps that I own for many reasons: 1. Very easy to use 2. Being able to map out your routes 3. Offline use 4. The customer service is amazing! Emailed them, and got a reply a few hours later Definitely recommend

by zoomad on 2010/10/19 22:51
Absolutely great app, even on an iPad. Graphics scale up quite nicely, and the built in street map view (internet required) is a real convenience. You can even hear a pronunciation of each station write in the app. So useful!

One thing is missing, but still scores a 98%
by AJJarrett on 2010/03/16 00:11
One thing is missing in this application, and this also applies to the Shanghai map too, there isn't a large view of the entire subway network. I would suggest that this is possible to do, and you can set it so that a person can view it when holding the iPhone horizontally.
BEST Beijing Subway app!!!
by cabnowhere on 2010/03/05 01:15
Best Bejing subway app that even reads out the name of each station! App is stable and updated and worth the $0.99 as all else is never both stable and updated....
Confident in Beijing
by Dxeph on 2017/12/12 00:07
Thanks to this wonderful app I feel very confident navigating Beijing. The app can show English and Chinese names of stations. The planned route function slows me to estimate travel times.
Works like a charm

Journey problem Airport Express
by mchico98 on 2019/03/04 00:49
The route journey using airport express does not work. It just said this trip is not supported ; no money amount, and estimated time.
Updating slow
by Shed216 on 2019/01/24 19:51
App is very poorly updated. New 2018 Beijing lines operating a month, still not reflected in app.
Loved this app until....
by wayofthesith on 2016/10/18 03:34
I live in Beijing and the subway is my primary mode of transport. At first, this app was awesome. I used it regularly. I even supported the developer. But after the iOS 10 update, problems began occurring regularly. Line 13 never shows as a faster route, the "email us" option doesn't work, times between stations are very hit or miss (6-10 minutes off at some) and I'm also not a fan of having to upgrade for EACH CITY map I download. I'd love to alert the developer to the problem via another now but it seems the "rate this app" function is the only one that still works properly. A real shame as I've been telling everyone for over a year to download this app because it was the best.

by Glamdrach on 2016/01/24 10:42
I paid for the full app a few years ago. Now the developer issued app for free and now requests more money to get functionality my paid version used to have. There is no restore purchase or recognition that I did pay for it. I have invoice and can prove to developer. Waiting for his reply.
