    I've downloaded this app for my trip to Europe. I loved the idea of having an app that helped me to create an itinerary like Google trips used to do. This apps description mentions that it works offline which is absolutely not true. It will crash every time I'd use it without wifi nor data. When the app finally decided to start after the 5th time I opened it will just freeze. Complete worthless if you are trying to get information when you are out and about exploring the city you are at. I love the concept but I think this app still needs a lot of improvements ahead.
  • Locked content wasn't great; now can't find user

    Was hoping the locked content would include audio readings at least. Several destinations you don't even get more written content. You do get linked to additional scrubbed from the web articles though. Now that the trial is over, cannot log back into the app. Terrible
  • Always crashing

    I downloaded the tours for Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The map is in Hebrew. Can’t it be transliterated into English?
  • Money maker

    Got lured into buying city for 4.99 that I could have easily figured out in my own. And even if I had, it was a significantly being “tour”. Palm Springs has beautiful homes and architecture and I could drive myself around and see them. Also, one home on this tour was part of the art museum that would have cost $200 to see. You couldn’t even drive up to it. Waste of money.
  • Good except fo a major bug

    If your device has internet access, the app will attempt to access its server when it launches. This is ok, except for when the server is down. In that case the app is frozen, trying to reach the server. This is bad for an app that is supposed to run WiFi independent. A workaround is to put your device in airplane mode before launching the app, that will get you access to your stored city maps.
  • Way underwhelming

    So many things that could be better with this app. For example why not spend the time to research each place rather than give a truncated version of Wikipedia entry. Also the map feature does not work properly. I really hate it. Not worth it
  • Hardly works at all

    The navigation turns on and off randomly. Some of the information is outdated. The phone keeps turning off while using the app and needs to be turned on again, causing me to lose my place on the tour. Some of the tours just show you some pictures and don’t tell you anything about the site. Sometimes the dot and fan that indicate where I am starts spinning around. The fan is too sensitive to body movement while walking and causes the navigation to change instructions over and over again. I wasted a morning of my vacation getting frustrated and not learning much. Also wasted my money on the app. The app is a great idea. It just doesn’t work very well.
