    App concept is very cool, however alot is unavailable, unless your ready to bounce 4.99/month, probably only worth it if your a serious photographer.
  • So much potential

    By Real person @notkidding.com
    It’s a great idea but if you don’t pay for the information all you see is a photo and the city it’s in. Idk about y’all but I’m not going to pay money for directions to a spot. This could be useful if there wasn’t a pay wall. I understand this was probably expensive to create but y’all gotta find a better way to monetize. Also “secret” spots need to be exposed because most people don’t know they exist and greedy photographers like to keep them hidden. I appreciate what this app does but as a consumer I refuse to spend any money on something like this. Honestly just use Reddit it has better information.
  • Nope. My pictures are mine

    The Explorest co-founder took exception to my earlier review as he believed I made an incorrect assessment when I noted their license agreement states that they retain ownership of any content you upload. In the interest of fairness, I re-read through both their “Terms and Conditions for use” and their “Contributor Agreement”. While the Contributor Agreement states that they will not resell your content, and you can request it to be removed at any time, the Terms and Conditions do not make such allowances. The Terms and conditions actually seem to contridict the Contributor Agreement. Nothing in the Terms document makes any separation of photos and other contributor data (it states “... any User Materials ...”) From the Terms and Conditions: “... You hereby assign to Explorest the right to use, reproduce, publish, distribute, compile and display any User Materials submitted by you as Content on the App. You waive any claim you have or may have under any theory of natural rights, including Droit Morale, or any right of attribution under the copyright law of any jurisdiction with respect to those User Materials, to the extent this waiver is recognizable under the law of the relevant jurisdiction. Explorest reserves the right to alter, remove, re-post, re-purpose, market, or trade any such User Materials. Explorest will have no obligations with respect to such materials...” For some reason the developer feels that I’m being hurtful in my review, but I’m only quoting their own documents. At the very least their policy is ambigious due to the contridictory statements in their agreements. Its great that they plan to share revenues with contributors, but until they sort out their agreements I won’t be using this app.

    I haven't been able to visit any of the locations because every time that I try to subscribe it won't let me!!! I'm so frustrated about it! This is the only app that doesn't let me subscribe to their full services, I've tried everything! Please, I'm a photographer and I'm really interested into visiting these amazing places, I need help!! But how can I do it, if I have zero idea in how to get there???
  • Great photo spots

    By Artable50
    Even though I’ve lived in New York for years, I found a lot of new incredible place to shoot photos from using the app. Hope they launch more countries soon.
  • Obsessed

    By cassie11201989
    This app has been super useful for me. I’ve found so many amazing spots around my own city that I had no idea existed! It’s really pushed me to get out and explore more. There are a lot of extra details and photography tips, and I like that you can look up and shop the gear used directly from the app. A great app for the casual tourist and pro photographer alike. Can’t wait for them to expand to more locations!
  • The opposite of Leave No Trace

    By liftz310
    Sadly this app is slowly selling out the specialness of many areas. As crowds increase at these geo-tagged spots , so does the percentage of people who don’t care about preserving the areas. The argument is that “everyone deserves to see these spots.” Well, I guess in the handout generation no one has any adventure left in them. Next time you go to your special spot that you cherish and have respected for years, you can thank apps like this for the trashed trails, piles of litter, huge crowds, and copycat images from the same perspective. Glad someone is cashing in on selling out.
  • Good idea but will lead to overcrowding

    By Xstellarkar
    I like the idea that there are some iconic places you want to see/visit for yourself and this app will aid in that. But I have to say many popular sites in nature are now being overrun with people who want to “do it for the gram”. They care about social media likes and not the damage in the massive influx of people and the damage they can do. I.e. Joshua tree Park, the superbloom, places like horseshoe bend, and the list goes on. Sadly this app just unknowingly encourages people who practice irresponsible tourism. Not everything needs to be on social media people! I’m not saying don’t travel, but ask yourself if you’re doing so responsibly.
  • Images don’t load on home screen

    By gmehtaster
    If the homescreen doesnt load images why would anyone spend time on this app.
