Find your way in China without language barriers!

Have you ever tried to move through China without understanding the language? Well, I have. And I have tried every available maps app to try to make sense of direction, means of transportation and nearby facilities. Nothing worked for me, until…

I found LingoMap!

LingoMap is a map app for foreigners who cannot read Chinese to use in China. It shows place, transit route, and street names in the original Chinese, Mandarin Pinyin, and English. 😀
