Trainsity Sapporo App for Windows Phone

 With this Windows Phone 8+ app, find your way around the city of Sapporo, Japan using the high resolution vector maps of the Namboku, Tozai and Toho metro rail lines.

The maps have small file size footprints but with many levels of zoom and can work offline without connecting to the Internet. You can zoom closer without having the details becoming blurred or "pixelated", like bitmap images. Users can click the train station labels to open Bing Maps, where they can use all the functions of the Google app to visualize the surrounding area and/or perform routing for directions. There is also an offline function to calculate the best way to travel from a station to another station with a direction breakdown and estimated timings (which may vary from the actual travelling time).

The following screenshots show how the app looks like on a Windows Phone 8+ handset.
When a tile is tapped, a detail map view of the selected line will appear, as shown below.
tapping a labeled box on the map will display the train station on the external Maps application, as shown below.
If you want to find how long it takes to travel from one station to another station, and the best route to take, simply swipe to the Route page. Then type in the From station and To station. As you enter the values, a drop down list will appear and a station can be selected from the list. Finally tap the Execute icon.
Tapping the more details link will display the recommended route to take.
Click the button below to download the app from the Windows store.
Get it from Microsoft
