Awesome app!
by TrishaLW808 on 2019/11/10 02:37
Definitely your GO TO app for finding your train options. I used this over HYPERDIA app that others recommended. The app helped me in booking and planning my trips on the Shinkansen using JR rail pass.
Reliable!
by SlicKiOS on 2019/09/18 13:43
It’s very accurate. It gives you the exact time and information of where to go. Now, I am an expert with trains!
Back to the once upon a time
by koijake on 2019/08/31 16:20
Place I call, “the HOME of my SOUL”. I was born near by town of Tomonoura. A long long time ago! Went to the U.S.A. to explore my curiosities. Then found the freedom!!!!! Decided to stay! Got married. Two kids! Every trip I, we, made to my native land, Japan, our trip included Tomonoura!!!! Now my kids want to visit there as their pilgrimage! I feel so warm inside of the core of my heart when I get greeted by the sign saying “WELCOME HOME”. In Japanese! There must be so many beautiful places to visit in Japan but Tomonoura will be one of the places you can enjoy Japan’s ONCE UPON A TIME!
Navigation Never Worked
by MacDen12 on 2019/08/15 02:07
Don’t buy the full feature. Navigation very difficult to follow and slow to update. Google maps worked better. This was only useful in finding train stations and platform.
Good for somethings, bad for others
by Jerjerfel on 2019/08/04 09:26
I gave this app 3 stars because numerous times, the stores I wanted to find/shop at came up with no information. This is disappointing because they immediately appeared when I googled the same store name with all the information including a map and directions. While other portions of the app are fine, for me if I want to go somewhere and this app can’t even tell me it exists I’m sorry to say it’s usefulness is closer to a 1 star... especially considering I had to pay $7.95!!!
Great for using the trains
by Haviprime on 2019/07/29 04:21
I used this for my week in Tokyo and it was amazing for getting you where you want to go. Would recommend.
Feature request JR pass on “Plan”
by יוגב222 on 2019/05/25 17:41
Please add the JR Pass option to the “Plan” feature, so that when the app automatically calculates travel between spots, it won’t show Nozomi. Great app!
For the past several years...
by Zerpersande on 2019/05/04 06:49
...I used an app called Japan Transit. Notice the verb tense above. Japan Transit got deleted after I used this app for all of 5 minutes. Much more info available with this new app, so I am still learning, but it is still much better.
Beyond essential for travelers to Japan
by OkazakiTheOtaku on 2019/03/22 20:53
If you’re visiting Japan and don’t have this app, you’re doing yourself a disservice. The timetables and train navigation are fast, easy to understand, and accurate. It outranks other apps (including Google Maps) in almost every regard.
Update 3.0.0 ruined it
by RMN1229 on 2019/03/18 21:25
I downloaded this app ahead of my trip to Japan 4 weeks. I was messing with it for a few weeks and loved it. Now, the night before my trip, I opened it up and was confused. Where was my app? Did I download something else? NOPE! The update ruined it. And I lost all my saved routes in the update. Now it’s confusing and difficult to use. Shame!
Best Japan transportation info app
by Aragabe on 2019/03/14 06:06
As foreigner I find this app very useful to know how to get from one place to another, truly the best app I’ve used for Japan Rail, subway, taxi, etc... very recommended
The best app ever
by kdbeast312 on 2019/03/08 19:07
Seriously couldn’t have navigated around Japan without it.
Awesome App
by Vanis27 on 2019/03/04 04:53
This app got me through the Tokyo subway system and made it very easy! Fantastic app!
MUST FOR NAVIGATING JAPAN
by Lalleschwari on 2019/01/23 00:35
I’m currently in Japan visiting and this app has been helping me navigate Japan. Once you get the hang of using it, the train stations are easy to navigate. Super helpful app and without it I would be lost in Japan. I love how it also has helpful articles like how to handle money and places to visit. Absolutely would recommend this to my friends. Thank you so much for creating this app!!
Best app for traveling in Japan
by rlee2018 on 2018/12/10 03:40
We spent two weeks traveling Japan with a JR pass and this app was essential- better than google maps because it gives you the option to “Prioritize JR pass”. Great!
SUPERB APP!!!
by mickey7984 on 2018/11/22 23:27
this app is very helpful!!! tried using other apps but nothing compares to this. with my recent travel to tokyo and osaka, this helped us a lot and made our life easier. it shows your options on where to go and the fare you need to pay.
Super good app
by SangoJ on 2018/11/13 14:53
Who says Google is the king of the world. This app blows Google Maps away. Awesome!

Great App for Public Transit
by klimanta on 2018/08/06 23:39
Works in places Google maps doesn't. Now with the timetable feature also free, it's a very convenient app to find how often a certain bus comes.
All
by S-2M on 2018/07/27 09:50
Very good app to help with travel in Japan. Provides multiple options based on desired inputs- departure / arrival time. Also has other tourist information. Thanks for making my travel in Japan easy.
Literally a life saver!
by Javk5pakfa on 2018/07/27 08:55
Recommended by a Japanese friend of mine, this app turned out to be insanely crucial while I traveled in Japan. At places like Tokyo the metro network can be daunting, but this app tells you how to get from one station to another, which track, what time, and even which car you should be in so that transferring to another line is as efficient as possible. Use this when you are in Japan!
Tourist necessity!
by Cristina555 on 2018/07/10 07:52
This app is a must have for tourists coming to Japan who plan on taking the trains. It tells you exactly where to go and what lines to get on so navigation is a breeze. Just make sure you have pocket wifi with you otherwise the app won’t run.
Incredible app - for JR pass holders, Google Maps is useless
by _abhishek on 2018/05/31 23:24
You can optimise for JR pass routes on this app, specially the Shinkansen Bullet trains you can take for free - Google Maps keeps suggesting more expensive options which wasn’t super useful. Sometimes it helps to check Google Maps to see which station is closer to your actual destination...so a map split view would be kinda nice right inside this app and something I might be willing to pay for. All the train stations are in English but I would have also liked if the local Bus stops which were often in Japanese were also in English. Google maps suffers from the same problem so they’re doing the best with the data they have I guess. This something we had to get by with by asking people in Japan around - who are also perhaps the best humans I’ve ever come across.
Great app!
by Da Masky on 2018/05/21 06:03
Great app that helps you better learn and navigate Japan’s intense rail system.
Calibration thing is annoying af
by Babyshaker67 on 2018/05/20 04:49
This app is amazing but WAY TOO OFTEN it makes me spin my phone around to "calibrate" with this dumb ball and circle. It's entirely pointless and I don't even need the app to track my location so it's useless. GET RID OF IT!!
Top!
by lu2584 on 2018/05/13 01:34
I definitely recommend this app. I used it for travelling around Japan, see the hours of the trains and how to get to the places we wanted to visit in Tokyo. It was very easy to understand the transport system of Japan thanks to this app.
Great App
by Numonics on 2018/04/26 22:04
Very helpful, open it in conjunction with google maps and it kept me on track
This app is a life saver
by Mrmike51511 on 2018/04/23 09:03
I have been living in Japan for a little over a year now and I use this app all the time. It’s incredibly user friendly. I’ve used it to navigate the trains and subways in Tokyo with ease. Would highly recommend.
Very good, recommended
by Mr.ST4N on 2018/03/15 01:39
Very well done, can't say anything else
Highly recommended
by Amion user on 2018/03/13 07:24
It makes seemingly complicated routes easy to find. I started using it on my 3rd day in Tokyo, and found it much easier to get around using the JR pass and the Toei/Metro pass.
Only routing would be great
by Hervy on 2018/02/26 00:58
I really wish this app was only a routing app. It feels bloated and slow with all the other information that’s all trying to get my attention when all I want is to know which train to take, when, and which platform I need to go to. The routing function is fantastic and there are tons of other resources for tourists to plan their visits, so why jam those two things into one app?
JapanTravel
by M/inTokyo on 2018/02/17 03:42
Not a good interface. Too much junk and cluttering articles that you have to navigate through to get to the usefull stuff
Disappointed
by Gahmuret on 2018/02/01 04:57
Ok for tourists... useless for residents. There is no option for those of us who drive in Japan.
Absolutely Great
by BBellauson on 2018/01/26 17:27
Very helpful app in planning our trip.
Not so great with latest updates
by subject24 on 2018/01/19 03:44
The app crashes every time when accessing the time specifics. Plus, typing in stations is horrifically slow, where text is appears 1 second after pressing. Waiting for a new fix, but in the meanwhile I'm using Google Maps without a hitch.
Great App for Train/Subway
by HwnOinker on 2018/01/05 18:18
This app has been very useful for me while traveling in Tokyo and beyond via train, subway, bus. It has definitely saved me a lot of time and stress when navigating the somewhat complex but wonderful transportation network. Information is updated in realtime keeping users in tune with delays, detours, conditions. Highly recommended download!
Excellent app
by Dhivyu on 2017/12/18 10:31
Very useful app for getting around. Esp Tokyo. Nicely integrates with all train companies. Highly recommend getting this app if you are visiting Japan.
Indispensable travel planning app
by Elmyr on 2017/12/10 23:59
Incredibly helpful for getting around Japan. If you’re just looking for train times, it has a better sense than HYPERDIA of which sections of lines are/are not affected by service advisories, and it also seems to provide more optimized routings. Even more impressively, this app integrates bus and ferry times - and has fares and bus stop numbers/names too. A journey from a Kirishima ryokan to Shimabara Port that took me hours to piece together from the various local Japanese transportation services’ sites takes a few minutes to find in this app. Pretty amazing.
Not that useful
by Piperhead on 2017/11/28 13:02
It supplies so wiki info about things to see but then breaks down and is no longer useful.
Essential travel app
by Shandiiiiin on 2017/11/15 03:02
This app was incredibly useful traveling to japan and navigating the public transport. It calculates your fair and has clear and essential information about the rail lines, and up to date info on times and delays. This app saved me a lot of confusion and stress visiting Japan for the first time.
Not working:
by Kees Lensing on 2017/09/26 11:40
If you have a iPhone with iOS 11 software, this app doesn’t work. But it is a great app if it’s working.
Absolutely the best
by tanaquil on 2017/08/13 14:55
If you need to get from point a to point b in Japan, this app is your friend. It is the English version of the app widely used by Japanese speakers. In-app purchases are nice but not essential. Free version will get you where you're going.
Best train app for Japan
by 3jap on 2017/07/26 19:32
I was just in Japan and used several apps to try to get around. After going through 2 different apps I came across this one and did not have to look any further. This app by far exceeded the other apps for train scheduling and what best trains to use. If anyone is looking to go to Japan and needs an app, this one is a MUST HAVE.
A must have when traveling in Japan
by Itune ash on 2017/07/18 04:52
Awesome app gave me all the info i needed to travel around Japan. Train routes , tips everything.
True Japanese experience: perfunctory hoop jumping
by llihgdots on 2017/03/23 03:25
Bottom line: just use google maps—I'm a resident and it is superior in every way. The other "features" of this app are attempts to upsell. Tracks you and collects user data. "Free wi-fi" requires that you already have internet access to confirm your email, which you must handover. If you do download however you can get the true Japanese experience: perfunctory hoop jumping for no benefit whatsoever and pointless "features" that clutter everything but offer nothing. Design by committee.
John
by Johninagi on 2016/12/18 01:38
Use this about 3 or 4 times when visiting Japan. It works great.
Transfer times are no longer available?
by brian0r on 2016/11/28 09:20
The best part about this app was how detailed it used to be. Now the connecting transfers no longer have any time stamps making it hard to easily navigate. Bring back the transfer timeline. Secondly, a feature request is to make sure we can save destinations/stations. This app would be so much better with this information...
Easiest to use for Public Transit in Japan
by ThatNameIsTaken on 2016/11/26 00:40
Love the app, even the free version is fully functional and easy to use. Highly recommended!
Unreliable App
by JapanTourist1A on 2016/11/01 01:46
Paid for full version. Routing options were incomplete. Found more direct routes by talking to the gate attendants at the train station. Ended up using Google Maps to navigate in Japan.
Travel Necessity
by Avalei18 on 2016/10/17 03:14
I've been using this app for two weeks now traveling all over Japan now and it's been a complete life-saver! I mainly use the route feature, and I love seeing the full line up of train stops for the recommended train lines as it helped me confirm I was on the correct lines. You will need WiFi to use it so make sure you have mobile WiFi or a Japanese SIM card to use it.
Always changes, never much help
by Jamesnao on 2016/09/18 03:54
Even from a short distance this app cannot give you good directions and will constantly give you different routes than the original one you choose. Even when there are trains i know that are faster, the app never shows them. Pretty much useless for Americans.
Useless
by The Real Arcade Feel on 2016/09/14 23:21
Limited version of navitime
Missing components!!
by Mr. Chaud on 2016/04/30 00:08
I have lived in Japan for many months but still I don't get to the place on time that's why I needed a powerful app that will give me information about train schedule and status. Don't get me wrong, this app is almost perfect and I have been using it ever since the day I got here. The only missing components is "live timer", probably train status and platform number. Train's platform number is very important for those people who aren't aware to the line company name so I guess those three components are a must have.
Zero stars
by Jackie919 on 2016/04/17 16:36
You have to download outside of Japan for the free wifi. Annoyed
Look up subway routes for later
by Lalitrev on 2016/04/05 15:15
I used this to look up the subway routes I was planning to take each day while sightseeing. You can save routes for reference later when you're offline and I found that really helpful in my travels.
Unreliable
by dennishowardtx on 2016/04/02 01:06
Unreliable. Very frustrating when it stops just when I need the information.
App doesn't locate my position when on map
by He ain't THAT good on 2016/03/05 22:57
When I have wi-fi and I tap to locate my current position it doesn't know and gives an error message.
Highly recommend it to foreigners when traveling to japan
by Hanoinang on 2016/02/29 16:46
Best application for finding route by using Subway in Tokyo
Best app for Japan trains!
by SumiBento on 2016/02/28 09:51
I have downloaded so many. But this one is the best! It's very accurate compared to most! Another good one is Hyperdia! Highly recommend ONLY these during your travels in Japan. Happy exploring!
Why do you need to access my location ALL THE TIME?
by lanwarrior on 2015/11/27 08:43
Most travel app use my phone location WHILE USING THE APP. You can check this under Settings --> Privacy --> Location. For some reason, Japan Travel wants to access my location, all the time, even when I am not in Japan? This is a huge privacy issue.
Great app for train travel
by jbadallas on 2015/10/06 23:53
Just used this app to travel around Japan via train. It's completely accurate and very useful. There were only two drawbacks that I saw that could be fixed down the road. One is to save stations as a favorite versus saving the route. The other would be to show which track should be used for a particular train.
Don't bother
by Residentas on 2015/10/04 20:43
I hate to disclose the fact that it was a piece of garbage. Managed only to use it once in a big store. Better focus on something more useful.
Best Japanese Rail App...
by McPherson1101 on 2015/04/11 22:22
I recently returned from a week long trip in Japan. This app helped me out TREMENDOUSLY with finding rail stations and which trains I should get on/times. I tried others, but this is the only one that would actually work. Thank you for making my week easier!
EATS your battery!!!
by RayBo-Tokyo on 2015/03/22 03:53

Bad app
by Stlove135 on 2015/03/20 13:19
Remove this app immediate, because not usefull, not free,...
Great but so expensive!
by JohnSMcCray on 2015/03/14 09:01
This app works great for finding the best train routs in Japan but OMG like $17.00 for a month or$ 8.00 for a week. Just too expensive for how many times you may use it.
Please fix what was a great App
by Erick61 on 2015/01/14 09:57
OK Navitime you need to fix the issues that are causing dramatic battery drain due to what appear to be back ground services running. As of now I have uninstalled which solved the drain issue. I installed a competitive App which does;t Adrian my battery… Fix & I’ll reinstall!!!!
A great app, bad updates.
by Salah Khatib on 2014/12/09 13:21
Accessing location services constantly in the background drains the battery within a couple to a few hours. A very useful app otherwise.
NAVITIME app
by ronin424 on 2014/12/07 04:43
December 7th addition. I can no longer recommend this app since each time I try use it the ticket I purchased remains expired. Even after they gave me a free 30 days it still expires after a certain amount of time. Ok I'm happy with the app and its functions; however, I don't know if I like the ticket purchase function. It's nice if you only need the app for vacations which only last 1 to 2 weeks or if you can 30 days. I generally would use it regularly living here in Japan. I just don't know if I want to pay for a year. Now for the con, I bought a ticket on a Saturday and used it for the day. On Monday I got a notice that said my ticket expired. I contacted the company and then reinstalled it. It worked for awhile but then expired again. I'm on my 3rd download one more failure and I'm contacting apple for s refund and going back to hyperdia and google maps. ej
Don't bother with this battery hog
by akahigezardoz on 2014/12/03 21:36
The app itself seems to work fine. Train line searches and all that. But if it runs in the background (and it will, by default), your battery will drain VERY quickly. I thought my battery was going bad until I discovered the cause--this app. I deleted it and the battery life is back to normal.
Best Train Application!
by Cslworldwide on 2014/11/09 15:48
I use this everytime I leave my house. I live in Tokyo and this app tells me what trains to take, has the rail colors, suggests multiple routes, displays the correct prices of each ticket you'll need and is just all around amazing. It can drain your battery pretty quickly, though. To get around this, plan your trip at home with this app, snap a screenshot and retrieve it from the camera roll for later referencing. You WILL fall in love with this app quickly!
Battery and Data Usage Drain
by DotDatAzz on 2014/11/08 07:48
It works well, but I had to uninstall this app because was using 62% of my battery and using massive amount of data.
Great help with the fares!
by Sarsajp on 2014/10/06 23:24
If you are new to Japan, it might be confusing to understand the fare system in the beginning. This app succeeds on giving this support, so you always know how much you are going to pay. Most of the important features are available in the free tier. Must have!

Got married. Two kids! Every trip I, we, made to my native land, Japan, our trip included Tomonoura!!!! Now my kids want to visit there as their pilgrimage! I feel so warm inside of the core of my heart when I get greeted by the sign saying “WELCOME HOME”. In Japanese! There must be so many beautiful places to visit in Japan but Tomonoura will be one of the places you can enjoy Japan’s ONCE UPON A TIME!

This app was incredibly useful traveling to japan and navigating the public transport. It calculates your fair and has clear and essential information about the rail lines, and up to date info on times and delays. This app saved me a lot of confusion and stress visiting Japan for the first time.
For the past several years...

...I used an app called Japan Transit. Notice the verb tense above. Japan Transit got deleted after I used this app for all of 5 minutes. Much more info available with this new app, so I am still learning, but it is still much better.
SUPERB APP!!!

this app is very helpful!!! tried using other apps but nothing compares to this. with my recent travel to tokyo and osaka, this helped us a lot and made our life easier. it shows your options on where to go and the fare you need to pay.
This app is a life saver
by Mrmike51511 on 2018/04/23 09:03
I have been living in Japan for a little over a year now and I use this app all the time. It’s incredibly user friendly. I’ve used it to navigate the trains and subways in Tokyo with ease. Would highly recommend.
Top!
by lu2584 on 2018/05/13 01:34
I definitely recommend this app. I used it for travelling around Japan, see the hours of the trains and how to get to the places we wanted to visit in Tokyo. It was very easy to understand the transport system of Japan thanks to this app.
Absolutely the best

If you need to get from point a to point b in Japan, this app is your friend. It is the English version of the app widely used by Japanese speakers. In-app purchases are nice but not essential. Free version will get you where you're going.
Best app for traveling in Japan
by rlee2018 on 2018/12/10 03:40
We spent two weeks traveling Japan with a JR pass and this app was essential- better than google maps because it gives you the option to “Prioritize JR pass”. Great!
Highly recommended
by Amion user on 2018/03/13 07:24
It makes seemingly complicated routes easy to find. I started using it on my 3rd day in Tokyo, and found it much easier to get around using the JR pass and the Toei/Metro pass.
Great App for Public Transit
by klimanta on 2018/08/06 23:39
Works in places Google maps doesn't. Now with the timetable feature also free, it's a very convenient app to find how often a certain bus comes.
Awesome app!
by TrishaLW808 on 2019/11/10 02:37
Definitely your GO TO app for finding your train options. I used this over HYPERDIA app that others recommended. The app helped me in booking and planning my trips on the Shinkansen using JR rail pass.
Reliable!
by SlicKiOS on 2019/09/18 13:43
It’s very accurate. It gives you the exact time and information of where to go. Now, I am an expert with trains!
Best Japan transportation info app
by Aragabe on 2019/03/14 06:06
As foreigner I find this app very useful to know how to get from one place to another, truly the best app I’ve used for Japan Rail, subway, taxi, etc... very recommended

Very good app to help with travel in Japan. Provides multiple options based on desired inputs- departure / arrival time. Also has other tourist information. Thanks for making my travel in Japan easy.
Update 3.0.0 ruined it
by RMN1229 on 2019/03/18 21:25
I downloaded this app ahead of my trip to Japan 4 weeks. I was messing with it for a few weeks and loved it. Now, the night before my trip, I opened it up and was confused. Where was my app? Did I download something else? NOPE! The update ruined it. And I lost all my saved routes in the update. Now it’s confusing and difficult to use. Shame!
Great for using the trains
by Haviprime on 2019/07/29 04:21
I used this for my week in Tokyo and it was amazing for getting you where you want to go. Would recommend.

Not a good interface. Too much junk and cluttering articles that you have to navigate through to get to the usefull stuff
Excellent app
by Dhivyu on 2017/12/18 10:31
Very useful app for getting around. Esp Tokyo. Nicely integrates with all train companies. Highly recommend getting this app if you are visiting Japan.
Navigation Never Worked
by MacDen12 on 2019/08/15 02:07
Don’t buy the full feature. Navigation very difficult to follow and slow to update. Google maps worked better. This was only useful in finding train stations and platform.
Feature request JR pass on “Plan”
by יוגב222 on 2019/05/25 17:41
Please add the JR Pass option to the “Plan” feature, so that when the app automatically calculates travel between spots, it won’t show Nozomi. Great app!
Calibration thing is annoying af
by Babyshaker67 on 2018/05/20 04:49
This app is amazing but WAY TOO OFTEN it makes me spin my phone around to "calibrate" with this dumb ball and circle. It's entirely pointless and I don't even need the app to track my location so it's useless. GET RID OF IT!!
Not working:
by Kees Lensing on 2017/09/26 11:40
If you have a iPhone with iOS 11 software, this app doesn’t work. But it is a great app if it’s working.
Great App
by Numonics on 2018/04/26 22:04
Very helpful, open it in conjunction with google maps and it kept me on track
The best app ever
by kdbeast312 on 2019/03/08 19:07
Seriously couldn’t have navigated around Japan without it.
Not so great with latest updates
by subject24 on 2018/01/19 03:44
The app crashes every time when accessing the time specifics. Plus, typing in stations is horrifically slow, where text is appears 1 second after pressing. Waiting for a new fix, but in the meanwhile I'm using Google Maps without a hitch.
Very good, recommended
by Mr.ST4N on 2018/03/15 01:39
Very well done, can't say anything else
Awesome App
by Vanis27 on 2019/03/04 04:53
This app got me through the Tokyo subway system and made it very easy! Fantastic app!
Absolutely Great
by BBellauson on 2018/01/26 17:27
Very helpful app in planning our trip.
Great app!
by Da Masky on 2018/05/21 06:03
Great app that helps you better learn and navigate Japan’s intense rail system.
Super good app
by SangoJ on 2018/11/13 14:53
Who says Google is the king of the world. This app blows Google Maps away. Awesome!
Best Train Application!
by Cslworldwide on 2014/11/09 15:48
I use this everytime I leave my house. I live in Tokyo and this app tells me what trains to take, has the rail colors, suggests multiple routes, displays the correct prices of each ticket you'll need and is just all around amazing. It can drain your battery pretty quickly, though. To get around this, plan your trip at home with this app, snap a screenshot and retrieve it from the camera roll for later referencing. You WILL fall in love with this app quickly!
Not that useful
by Piperhead on 2017/11/28 13:02
It supplies so wiki info about things to see but then breaks down and is no longer useful.

Navigation doesn’t work. No go button.
Disappointed
by Gahmuret on 2018/02/01 04:57
Ok for tourists... useless for residents. There is no option for those of us who drive in Japan.
NAVITIME app
by ronin424 on 2014/12/07 04:43
December 7th addition. I can no longer recommend this app since each time I try use it the ticket I purchased remains expired. Even after they gave me a free 30 days it still expires after a certain amount of time. Ok I'm happy with the app and its functions; however, I don't know if I like the ticket purchase function. It's nice if you only need the app for vacations which only last 1 to 2 weeks or if you can 30 days. I generally would use it regularly living here in Japan. I just don't know if I want to pay for a year. Now for the con, I bought a ticket on a Saturday and used it for the day. On Monday I got a notice that said my ticket expired. I contacted the company and then reinstalled it. It worked for awhile but then expired again. I'm on my 3rd download one more failure and I'm contacting apple for s refund and going back to hyperdia and google maps. ej
Travel Necessity
by Avalei18 on 2016/10/17 03:14
I've been using this app for two weeks now traveling all over Japan now and it's been a complete life-saver! I mainly use the route feature, and I love seeing the full line up of train stops for the recommended train lines as it helped me confirm I was on the correct lines. You will need WiFi to use it so make sure you have mobile WiFi or a Japanese SIM card to use it.
Missing components!!
by Mr. Chaud on 2016/04/30 00:08
I have lived in Japan for many months but still I don't get to the place on time that's why I needed a powerful app that will give me information about train schedule and status. Don't get me wrong, this app is almost perfect and I have been using it ever since the day I got here. The only missing components is "live timer", probably train status and platform number. Train's platform number is very important for those people who aren't aware to the line company name so I guess those three components are a must have.
Best train app for Japan
by 3jap on 2017/07/26 19:32
I was just in Japan and used several apps to try to get around. After going through 2 different apps I came across this one and did not have to look any further. This app by far exceeded the other apps for train scheduling and what best trains to use. If anyone is looking to go to Japan and needs an app, this one is a MUST HAVE.
Great app for train travel
by jbadallas on 2015/10/06 23:53
Just used this app to travel around Japan via train. It's completely accurate and very useful. There were only two drawbacks that I saw that could be fixed down the road. One is to save stations as a favorite versus saving the route. The other would be to show which track should be used for a particular train.
True Japanese experience: perfunctory hoop jumping
by llihgdots on 2017/03/23 03:25
Bottom line: just use google maps—I'm a resident and it is superior in every way. The other "features" of this app are attempts to upsell. Tracks you and collects user data. "Free wi-fi" requires that you already have internet access to confirm your email, which you must handover. If you do download however you can get the true Japanese experience: perfunctory hoop jumping for no benefit whatsoever and pointless "features" that clutter everything but offer nothing. Design by committee.
