An absolutely essential app if you are driving in Korea since it now has an English interface. We drove the length of the country relying entirely on this to get around, would have been lost without it. Honestly I think it's probably even better than Google maps in the US, the interface is clear and uncluttered, and the spoken directions are accurate and timely. Warns of speed cameras (these are everywhere in Korea) and flashes red if you are over the limit when approaching a camera, and more.

Pretty essential for living in Seoul. The English version isn't very good, imo. I use the Korean version. I appreciate the detailed info about public transport arrival times and which train door to use to shorten your next transfer time. (Arrival times aren't always 100% accurate, but would it be reasonable to expect that?) I have sometimes had a little trouble with looking up addresses on the app, but I suspect that is because of poor choices in the way the addresses are written.

Maps are good, the English UI is good enough. Several basic features are locked if you aren't logged in, sign up and sign in is frustrating, a mobile phone number is required. I'm traveling in Korea, tried going through the sign up and the account was immediately suspended. Tried the login through line and it says it "Temporarily Unavailable". If there was another option I would use it instead, but Google maps and open street maps are both fairly incomplete in Seoul.
