South Korea’s subway system is clean and very easy to use. Because of this, it is considered one of the best ways to travel or commute in the country. However, as the number of subway stations and number of people using the system has increased, there are those who can find it confusing.

Browsing through your smartphone’s app store you’re sure to find a number of apps to guide you through the Korean subway maze, but KakaoMetro is easily the best tool for both your exploration and daily commute.

Use KakaoMetro for access to nationwide subway system timetables, including express train times. It also offers accurate estimated fares and quickest routes to get home. Another feature is a button to share your arrival time to save you from typing it out in a message. And, if you lose any of your belongings, check out the “Lost and Found” button for contact information of the nearest subway station.

The app also provides real-time subway information based on location, and also lets you set an alarm so you know your stop is coming up. The app will even tell you which door leads to the fastest transfer during high-traffic commutes.

KakaoMetro is free and available on iPhone and android. Download it today and start learning the ins and outs of Korea’s subway system.
