Planning my itinerary has been an awesome experience! You can't add custom locations and customizing your preferred route can be a bit of a hassle at times. But otherwise, the app is incredibly helpful and well designed. Once it gets closer to my vacation, I'll see how effective this proves.

Good for getting around on public transport, especially since it shows you prices which Google Maps does not. I wish you could import POIs though.

Update for EU citizens: Because of GDPR the app devolopers decided to cancel login and so saving collections for people living in EU. As I moved onto a new mobile device I lost all my collected places. Still, this app is very useful for people traveling in Japan. I have been in Japan multiple times and still will use this app as it helps finding places and commuting. I removed one star because of the login topic.
