Updated Jorudan train transit app finally supports romaji
Posted by SBS
There really are no good, free apps for train transit in Japan. They all have their issues. I use Jorudan, but I realize many of you have other preferences. In addition to a new, slightly improved UI, you can now type romaji in the search box to bring up stations. The app is still only in Japanese, though.
Before, if my keyboard was set to English, typing a station was a real pain. Since Android keyboards, for some unknown reason, can't support properly Japanese and English at the same time, you have to switch keyboards to a Japanese one to search. This requires several, annoying steps. Now, you can just type the station phonetically in romaji.
What is your favorite transit android app?
