Completely useless. If you can get a taxi at all, most of the time the drivers struggle to read street addresses in English or Korean..? Every single taxi experience involved us sitting and waiting for 5 mins for the driver to figure out where the map is pointing to... The app itself is buggy and laggy with navigation, and location information is more or less useless. We resorted back to Google Maps almost every time. Don't go without a translation app, and still you will struggle in South Korea

This app is so horrible. Despite claiming it has an English version, it can ONLY give you results when you type in Korean. It can also ONLY give you results when you put in the exact (Korean) word with absolutely no mistakes. If you put in "Mcdonalds" without the apostrophe, it won't give you any results. When you DO get results on something, it only gives you results by "relevance" instead of distance from you, meaning everything is far away, instead of the closest options to you. Horrible!

Great navigation app for Koreans. Horrendous public transportation options for non-Koreans. This app doesn't give the optimal route when you need to catch the next train or bus. They give you the following train or bus, which adds between 5-10 minutes to your expected arrival time. It's also ironic they tell you the best car to enter for fast transfer but they don't tell you which platform to take. My bad experience makes me wish Google Maps was a thing in Korea
