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.
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.
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!
Use it all the time but needs updates Needs updates for the two new shinkansen lines to Kanazawa and Hakodate. For the rest, it is awesome. What it can't do, is include all trains you can use with a Japan Rail Pass, but that is because Hyperdia (the engine used) has been screwing that up since 2010.
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.
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
