nice app but the only problem is that how do the none iaratgsnm users register a iaratgsnm account, new account registration is currently disabled from iaratgsnms website so the only way for people to register a new account is too use the app on a idevice. is their any alternative to this as i personaly dont own a idevice

No it's not!! It's just another stupid update to remove the jailbreak. If you wanna improved maps of Japan stick to Google Maps.
