Good, but with a few tweaks could be much better 3/5
I like this app, as far as it goes, but with 2 enhancements, it could be so much better: 1) When planning a route, the app should indicate, in addition to the line to take, the name of the end of line. Simply telling me which line to take doesn’t tell me which direction I need to go; 2) the app should be able to tell me the metro stop nearest my current location.
The bottom was a result of the first time I used the app. This is an update before I trash the app.
My advice, just use Apple Maps. It’s free. Issues with Paris Metro: it is definitely not free, it’s basically unusable without paying. Otherwise it’s constantly taking you to Safari to read a blank page, blank because your content blocked prevented it from loading. What really irritated me is it will take you to a video ad that prevents you from doing anything until you've watched whatever it is they want you to watch, it displays intermediate stops but very poorly compared to Apple Maps. If you’re a typical tourist and don’t know when your stop is coming, forget this app. The below issues still remain.
Frankly I have no clue how this app garnered thousands of positive reviews when Apple Maps is by far and away better.
First, for route planning, this is an excellent app. But please, for route planning nearly every transit map is excellent. One enters a start and finish and gets a number and time schedule.
Ease of use is another matter. Layout is terrible. The main planning/execution screen has over 80% of its space devoted to other developer apps, Twitter, Favorites, in app purchases. If I'm stationary fine. If I’m moving, as I usually am when I’m doing Metro, hitting twitter instead of Route Planner is quite easy, a waste of time and there’s no obvious way to dismiss the twitter screen, or any of the others.
While twitter and Uber are resident, some simple guidance on costs and instructions on how to purchase a ticket are not included. The app is a vehicle to drum up business for other businesses, not assist you with the Paris Metro.
This app needs improvement to make it better than average.
Ads immediately 1/5
Wish they didn’t hand out the instant I opened the app
Sent me the wrong way multiple times 2/5
This app has no knowledge of closed stations due to Notre Dame fire and cost me at least 45 minutes and much walking over multiple times.
Best and Easiest App to use in Paris 5/5
I love this app and all the options it provides and it allows me to see everything up close or from a distance with many travel options to choose from all in one ........ definitely top notch and out doing there competition 😎👍🏾👍🏾
Thank You for making my life so much easier in Paris - Sincerely from the Traveler 🧳 ✈️
Helpful but needs improvement 3/5
The major improvement needed is on the planner, and it needs to have the line direction/end stop so it’s easy to tell which direction to get on.
What happened to the directions ? 2/5
App no longer tells which direction train you need - not very useful without that
Must have App 4/5
Loved the app and it’s easy and user-friendly interface. “Metroing” all over Paris was surprisingly simple. Only reason I rate it as 4-star rather than 5 is because it lacked clarity when switching from metro to RER. Otherwise absolutely fantastic to use.
Zero Help! 1/5
What’s the point of a free app if you can’t route it anywhere unless you pay to unlock that feature?
The best all for metro 5/5
This is great smart and simple app for metro, Recommend
Just got back 5/5
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I have no idea what we would have done without this app it was accurate and easy to follow. Purchase your metro ticket and follow the directions especially the part that states which line number and what it is towards. For example it will say line 4 towards Porte de Cignancourt. When you get into the metro you will see the line for and color corresponding to the color on the app you look at the final stop which you should see Port de Cignacourt as the last stop and that tells you you are getting on the train in the right direction. This app made it easy and we were certainly apprehensive about using the metro I watched numerous YouTube‘s but until I downloaded this app nothing made sense. We went everywhere on the metro sightseeing all the major attractions for a fraction of the cost of taxis do yourself a favor and download the app.
Sub par app 1/5
It doesn’t tell us anything about how to buy tickets the difference between the metro and the RER ....
where stations are .....where we can purchase tickets .....in short all the things we need to know they deliberately omitted from this app .....they really need to do some homework before they put out an app so that when we open the app it’s actually useful ......the app as it stands is almost useless ......this map is in every metro station throughout ParisBut a very information we need is not here
Accurate & Lifesaver 5/5
I just got back from Paris. This app was a lifesaver and so easy to use. It was perfectly accurate - I was able to get routes so easily and saved so much time. I cannot recommend it enough.
Simple to use 5/5
Get around Paris with T tickets cheap easy. Spent two weeks in Paris and used app each day. Enjoy.
No current info in app 1/5
By No names avail.
If stations or routes are closed there is no notice of that in route planner. Not at all helpful!
Beware: Versailles info is WRONG 1/5
By Rocking Ronnie
While this app works reasonably well live in the city of Paris, I give it one star for having cost me €70 by directed me to the wrong station when I wanted to go to the palace of Versailles. The app mistakenly directed me to the Veroflay Rive Gauche station which is one short of the correct Versaille Chantier station for the most famous tourist sites in France. How they got this wrong is a mystery to me but I stayed on the train for the one additional station and could not get out of the station without paying a 70€ fine for two of us to the station personnel for having broken the law. The app is free and you get what you pay for
Needs work 1/5
If you could update and let people know which stations are shut down it would be a tremendous help. Three times in the last two days we were lead to entrances and/or stations that were closed.
By wj connor
Absolutely a must for a tourist who isn’t familiar with the system. Great route planner that holds you recent searches and destinations. Easy to use.
Awesome app 5/5
A must to use the Paris metro. Route planner rocks!
Doesn’t take long term closures into planning wants you to buy all the upgrades. 1/5
Waste of money. Once to continuously take us to a rail line that is down for service and has been planned for a long time.
Want you to buy upgrades on which side of the street to exit as well as not pay for ads. Once you invest eight dollars in this and realize it can’t get you from Saint Michel to the Eiffel Tower you will realize you wasted your money.
If I could give it zero stars I would.
Pay extra to make it work right?
Works great and easy to understand
By lance ludke
Save yourself a ton of time!! 5/5
Yes, you can do te same with a map, but can you do it standing up in a super crowded train cart? We were able to change routes so easily. The app is the perfect match for any trip.
Great app. Just needs 1 more feature 4/5
This app is a great convenience for anyone traveling on the Paris metro. Only one thing I would have loved to see added was if I could pick locations/attractions as my start and end points, and the app would automatically pick the nearest metro stations for me.
A must have 5/5
By A traveling Wilbury
Traveling? You need this app in Paris. Period. Easy. Makes getting around too easy.
Good for what it does 3/5
Not as intuitive as some. If you want Gare St-Lazzare you must type Saint-, for example. Doesn’t seem to include hotels as destinations. I mostly used the Paris Metro website.
Does NOT Update for Closures 1/5
I downloaded this while visiting Paris. It works great but a major flaw that will render it useless and problematic for many visitors is that it does not update with closed stations! Chatelet has been closed on the 4 line for a 2 months now for renovations and will continue to be closed for another 2 months, but this app still tells you to use the station. Useless.
Paid to have advertisements removed but still have dog blocking my view! What gives?
MUST HAVE app while in Paris. My wife and I were in Paris back in October for a little over a week. I DO NOT know what we would have done without this app. It worked (every time), it was accurate (every time), and it was fast (every time). You could even reverse the direction if you needed to.
TIP: In anticipation of losing a signal down below, snap a screenshot of your route before taking off!
Funniest thing ever - it was our first time in Paris and on TWO occasions we were giving metro directions to other travelers using this app as if we were locals!
January in Paris 5/5
This app makes me feel safe and smart. I have less than stellar navigational skills and would often have to backtrack to get where I was hoping to go. With this app, I also save so much time. Thank you very much.
By Jools son's friends
This app let me move so easily around Paris on the Metro. If I could give 100 stars I would! Thank you!!!
Really made it easy to figure out how to go from one landmark to the next.
One star for annoying me with a prompt to review the app.
Made our time in Paris so much better!
Best thing that happened to me for my first visit to Paris 5/5
This app turned my life around because adjusting to Paris was hard the first couple of days but now i feel like a local.
Everything you need. 5/5

Essential App for Paris! 5/5
This app makes getting around Paris so easy! You can figure out how to get from point A to point B using street addresses or station names. It's easy to use and user-friendly.
Seriously Amazing 5/5
I am so glad I found this before arriving in Paris! It was easy to look up the stations we needed to get to and which direction to take with the trip planner feature...plus no data usage! I want to upgrade the app just to support the developer - it's THAT good! Highly recommend.
In Paris now 5/5
I'm in Paris now, and just found this app from the City Guide - I wish I had known before coming to plan out the routes and saved lots of time.
Very good 4/5
Easy to use and efficient! 5/5

Couldn't make it through Paris without it!! 5/5
Fantastic app! Very user friendly!! Has been so helpful navigating and planning. Love this app!!
#1 most helpful item I brought 5/5
On my trip to Paris was my phone. Because of this app. If you are going there and plan to do any train travel - get it. I'd definitely recommend the extras too. They are cheap and useful. Plus who doesn't like supporting a good app?
Must have in Paris!!! 5/5
This app was fantastic :) You can use offline, we used this our entire trip. No problems at all. Super easy to use and understand even my family could use it! Great!
