Just like many of the other comments mentioned, it was a great app. English doesn't work in the search function anymore and the resulting route is also in Korean now. It's still possible to use but you'll have to search the map manually and select from where to where you're going. On the displays in the train you'll have to match up the displayed station names when transfering. Went from super useful to annoyingly complicated workaround :(

About 9/10 times when I'm going anywhere involving Guro the train station this app does not tell me to swap if I need to and I keep ending up on the other side of Korea when I'm just trying to get home. It's also Barely use able in English. Do not recommend at all.
