Has a notification permanently stuck in the notification bar that cannot be dismissed or disabled. Please remove this. Hard to use. Won't show a map of the route. Won't show a list of departures from a station. Can't find many destinations. Planning my trip is easier with google maps. ETA, this app is trash. I'm at station, looking for the train this suggested. It does not exist! No such depature time or train number at this station! Google told me a train and platform that is real. Garbage app.

I've been using this app for years now and I loved it until they put the feature for viewing the train stops between apps behind a paywall. We were able to check this for free before... Usually when you want to monetize an app you create new features and then make them subscription based, not take away features that were free for years and suddenly make it cost money to use.. A bit disappointing, but besides that it's a pretty good app!

Very useful tool! Great for planning iteneraries in Japan. The fare calculation feature is a great plus. But one thing they can improve is showing the savings I get when I use my travel pass. Overall a five star app, just missing a key feature in my opinion. Also, check out the discount coupons in the app, the are some for pocket wifi and sim cards. Use them for an additional discount when you preorder.
