It's okay but can't really be used on its own, even in Korean it seems to be pretty bad. For example, if you want to enter an address, even if you put the exact address or if you search really common things like "x station" it won't even give you the closest approximation. You have to use it in conjunction with another app. I was making do for a couple weeks in Jeju but it has no f*ng clue what to do in Seoul. Switching to another app to try my luck there.

The first one of these apps that I actually like! Bravo! 0 issues with this. The street view is actually far superior to google maps! Seeing A LOT of 1 star reviews because apparently with a recent update, they removed features including the English voice for navigation. This is why I don't update my apps! 😁 Don't update your apps and save the .apk files to a hard drive in case you need to restore your phone! 👍🏻

If you're in South Korea this is a MUST have. Just download it now. Update: There are some user experience gotchas with this app. First, the default mode for directions does NOT update your location on the map. It shows no updates! You can get it give GPS real time updates...how?? Click around randomly...I can't reliably repeat the behavior. This is bad. Second issue: naming places. On map hover menu, "add place" is PUBLIC places. Not what I would expect. Private locations are hidden. bad desig
