The Joy of Six: introducing Explore Hong Kong 6.0 with Octopus Card support, top tips

We’re proud to announce that Explore Hong Kong is the fifth of our award-winning subway maps for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to reach version 6.0

Version 6.0 includes support for showing prices with/without Octopus Card in the routeplanner.

With version 6.0 we re-wrote the map code from the ground up to be faster. The app now loads quicker, and zooming in and out should be smooth, even on older devices.

The other big new feature is tips.

Ever wondered what points of interest are close to a subway stop? Now you can tap on any station, then tap on Tips to see what’s nearby. Tap the thumbs up button on any tip which you find useful.

You can also view a list of the newest, or most popular tips for the whole city.

And if you know a great local restaurant, attraction or a clever shortcut, you can add your own tip:
