Seoul subway map on apps

Seoul metro may not be as complicated as those in Tokyo or London, however, the extensive network can be confusing to anyone who is new to the city.

With the invention of smart phone, you can actually say good-bye to the traditional print subway map. Technology has made traveling so much easier. There are many apps available for Seoul subway, and in my opinion, the apps developed by Broong is the best apps.

1. Many apps needed data line connection, which means you cannot use the apps when is off-line. For this apps, you can use  it off-line. You can do updated when you have access to internet connection;

2. The apps allow you to check the shortest train journey, the fare for the journey and even tell you the total number of stations and estimate time for the journey! excellent! This allow you to safe a lot of time especially you know estimated traveling time from point A to point B.

3. The apps is so easy to use that you only  require to “click” depart and “click” arrive and you will have the instant information. Alternatively, you can type the stations that you are departing and arriving. By far this is the best apps I have ever used for any big city subway line. Gone are the days where you carry print map on hand and searching for the stations. 😉

4. Besides, this apps has the subway map for other major cities such as Busan, Daegu,Daejeon, and Gwangju. So if you are traveling to these cities, you don’t have to carry subway maps of these cities.

With this apps, I have stopped using the traditional print subway map .. 😉

      Hi Nella,
      So far, I think this is the best app for Seoul Subway because other apps are all in Korean language unless you can read Korean. I do not have any problem downloading this app at all. Why don’t you try delete and download again? 🙂 Trust me, this app is very easy to use and the beauty of it is you can use it off-line which mean you no need to have wi-fi connection to use them. Enjoy..:)
