Good but do not rely on the track numbers. Overall useful during my trip all over Japan using the JR pass but DO NOT RELY ON THE TRACK NUMBERS PROVIDED. It was wrong frequently so double check which track your desired train leaves from before getting on. This is more of an issue with Hyperdia than with the app itself but should still be noted by people using the app.
Lifesaver! This app is one of the most useful apps ever. I'd pay for it if it wasn't free! This made our Japan holiday easier because we had all the info we needed for getting around, especially getting the most out of our JR pass. For those complaining about not having access offline, plan your day ahead and just screeshot the route!
Excellent and invaluable 3 days into my holiday in Japan and this app had been incredibly useful. It has saved me so much time wandering around wondering where to go. With little effort I'm navigating through Tokyo like a local. The exporting to calendar is really useful for journeys with multiple transfers.
Japan traveller best friend Bern absolutely vital to my travel around Japan, has all the major rail lines and even a lot of the smaller private ones as well. Have not found a station it didn't have yet. Just wish you could get more information on some lines, like how many stops the train has before yours, and/or a list of the stations so you know what the ones before it are
The app works really well. Very straight forward and helps plan your route fairly well. However, it requires an internet connection in order to work which essentially makes it useless when I need it most. If I have an internet connection, I can just look up the route on Google Maps. This app needs offline support in order to actually be useful.
Pretty much perfect Once you figure out that pressing the current tab (magnify glass, map) acts as the option button, you can do alot. The map will find your current location and long pressing a station name lets you set it as departure or arrival station. The 🔎 search can let you set a chosen route to your calendar.
