Pros and cons of Metro Paris Subway app for iPhone and iPad

Metro Paris Subway app good for

This app is amazing! The best way to explore all the city of Paris!
Very useful app if you dont want to carry around a ratty old map with you on the Paris métro. There are maps for the lesser-known Transillien/SNCF train lines, but sadly no route planner for the stations on these lines. For a tourist, however, the Métro, RER and Tram routes is more than enough.
Great app. I used the 2.x version, and it was great. The new version allows the addition of Points of Interest, but at an additional cost. This cost is not worth it. Route calculations can be a bit odd, but it gets you where you need to go. Transfers in the Paris Metro can be 100s of metres with many flights of stairs ,and this app does not take this into effect. Beware if you have luggage!
This proved very useful on our recent visit to Paris. Only thing I would look for as an improvement is that it not only tell you the line to take to get to your destination but also the direction to take on the line. This can be confusing to figure out on ones own As it requires you to trace the line map to determine the end station in the appropriate direction. Other than this one wish it is a most excellent tool to have with you in Paris. Bon voyage mon Amis!
If you ever hated feeling like a tourist by stumbling through subway maps in cities you are visiting, this app is for you! It quickly routes you from stop A to stop B, making finding any place in Paris a breeze. The only deficiency I could find was that sometimes the time estimate was either too short or too long. A highly recommended app for Paris visitors and natives!
Totally helped me getting around Paris. A must have. Easy to use.

Some bad moments

These guys making money with an incomplete map. Nonfunctional app and a UI that sucks. There are plenty of free apps much better than this one. Dont waste your money.
I bought the add-on for bus plan, but it doesnt indicate where the bus stop is and its not linked to the metro plan. RATP is providing the same kind of app and thats free and even better. バスの地図もアドオンで購入しましたが、メトロとリンクしてないし、バス停の位置もわからない。 RATPが同様のアプリを提供していますが、そちらは無料だし、Googlemap上にバス停の表示をしてくれるので、よほどマシです。アドオンまでしたのにあの程度では、他の方にはオススメできません。
Cant get screens to open. Disappointing!!! Loved London Tube Deluxe but this wont work! Had to install another app.
If I could I would rate this app -5. It is absolutely worthless. User interface is beyond unfriendly. You basically have to know the spelling of each and every single subway station for it to find it in its database. What a waste of a dollar. Makers of this app should be ashamed of themselves.
Save your money. Google maps will completely map journey including subway
