As featured on BBC World's Fast Track TV program, the Shanghai Taxi Guide is filled with over 3000 big, bold-faced addresses in Chinese that show drivers exactly where you want to go, perfect off those visiting the city for the first time, or for those that call Shanghai home. Now with fully cached Offline Maps that can be accessed anywhere!

What do users say about the app?

"I would easily pay $100.00 for this App! It's an absolute lifesaver for any expat living in Shanghai."

"This is perhaps the BEST thing on my iPhone..... I've lived in Shanghai for 2 years and speak a fair amount of Chinese, but still find this GREAT for getting around! "

"This app is brilliant and has a database of almost every venue in Shanghai."

Want to try it out? If you are visiting Beijing, you can check it out in person at the Beijing Sanlitun Apple Store, or see the video demo on YouTube at http://bit.ly/HoodHotTaxiGuide.


+ Taxi Cards: Just hold up your iPhone - the big, bold addresses in Chinese tell the driver exactly where you want to go. No more charades and no more getting lost!

+ Offline Maps: Ever find yourself wishing for a map but didn't have or want to pay for a data connection? Your wish has been granted - Shanghai Taxi Guide now has fully cached, zoomable, scrollable Offline Maps! And if you have a device with a GPS chip (iPhone or iPad with 3G radio) it will display your current location as well.

+ Search: Want to find a specific place? Search for it in English or Chinese! With over 3000 locations and hundreds of hotels, it's probably in here! If not, let us know, and we'll include it in the next release.

+ Distance Sorting: Sort the locations by distance to quickly find things around you.

+ CardShare: Friends envious of your iPhone and that you have the Shanghai Taxi Guide? At least you can share the Chinese address with them via Email, SMS, or just by copying and pasting it into your program of choice.

+ Custom Cards: Ask your local friends to input your private addresses and have every card you need with you at all times!

+ Notes: Trying to remember why you love that hutong shop on the corner? Make a note of it and you'll never forget.

+ Integrated MapView so you don't have to exit the app to see smooth zoomable, scrollable Google Maps!*

+ Integrated WebView so you can read view reviews from the web from inside the app!*

And don’t worry; it doesn’t need an internet connection, so you won’t get dinged with roaming fees. (*Please note that mapping and internet browsing of reviews require an internet connection and will use data). We'll be providing constant updates, since the app is offline and Shanghai changes so quickly, so stay tuned, add your hotel to the favorites, and enjoy Shanghai!

Not bad, but not great

I've used this in lieu of Guanxi, but too often, I either can't find the listing I'm searching for, or some of the information listed is incorrect. For example, I just tried calling the phone number for the Purple Onion, and it turns out to be the number for some hotel. I had to go to the Smart Shanghai website to get the correct number.

Listings are not up to date, and some listed venues have long closed their doors (American Steak & Eggs has been gone for almost 2 years... seriously guys... come on!).

Navigation and searches could be better as well. Why isn't there a way to keyword search, and not just search by name?

Interface can be buggy. Once you're in search mode, you are forced to type something. There's no way to get back to the main options screen w/o doing a search.

It would be SOOOO much better and more accurate if the app were wiki, allowing users to upload corrections and helpful advice.
