Great app, with a much better interface than Hyperdia, and the ability to pull up your recent searched offline without having to re-search (something Hyperdia can't do). I wonder if the train information is up to date though? The app has not been updated in 3 years now, and maybe trains have changed schedules since then? So far, it's been very accurate, but I worry now... Could use a small fix to remove the in the "for <station>" lines under the train line name. That line is cut off by 1-2 pixels also, and sometimes it's missing completely, but the same text shows up on Hyperdia's website, so it's probably in the database.
Can't get around without it This app is God sent. Not only it tells you the quickest way from one station to another anywhere in Japan, it also tells you which way brings you there earliest, and suggests the alternate routes. Also provides fare information and platform number where available. I was dependent on this app during my stay in Japan. The only glitch I faced was a misreported departure time. Looks like Hyperdia database is to blame though.
Premium version? Great app for figuring out the cheapest/fastest train travel around Japan. I'd be happy to pay for an offline premium version but there doesn't seem to be one. So ideally please remove the useless premium check delay and start up screen which just wastes time when starting. Thanks!
Great but found discrepancy I'll be going to Japan so I downloaded this app. I tested this app to see if it matches the schedules shown by Hyperdia. All the train schedules in my itinerary are correct with this app except one: I'll be going from Hachinohe to Ueno on May 24 at around 15:00. Hyperdia gives me Shinkansen at 15:06 which goes to Ueno by Hayabusa. However, this app does not show this train. Don't know why. Could the developer try to find out and correct anything wrong.
Great and quick to check Excellent app to use...checking every rail JR and private. Accurate and fast. Only problem is the every time have to enter names of stations in departure and arrival boxes. Does not save the previously entered info after going back. No saved route or search histories. With those fixed...it would be an easy 5 star.
This app was very helpful on our 2 week trip from Osaka to Tokyo & Kamakura. Our travel to every destination was easy & fast most especially when we planned ahead by taking express trains (no stop from pt. A to B) saved us a lot of time. Can't wait to use this app next week when we explore Kanagawa & Fukuoka. #Happyuser
