Really terrible app experience. App doesn't comply with Android standards/requirements (back button won't close app, for instance). Can't even access locations on a general map without upgrading and the price of this app is astoundingly (downright absurdly) high for something that is essentially just user generated content. Total rip off. App also doesn't prioritize locations close to you in the home view. No offline mode is an issue, too. I wanted to love this idea, but sadly it's a huge fail.

Dear Dan, what a sad timing. I just released a big app update that makes the app a lot easier to understand with a new Explore page. Just open a Location and click on the map tab to access the free map. Thanks to your feedback I also just implemented the back button closing the app, being available within the next few hours. ;-) -- Manuel

They collect your information and do not tell you that you cannot see your area or even view the map without paying 11.99/ month! The whole purpose of the app is photo location. Without paying, all you get is random photos. Might as well use Instagram. Total scam, avoid.

Hey Gerald,I am very sorry that you had such a first experience with the app.Actually all the content is free,I just need to improve the views since it's my first app + version of the app.You can simply search for your country and see all spots + a map with all spots for free without paying anything.Around-me only helps to find spots nearby.

Decent to discover new photo spots around but nothing a quick Google search can't find - nothing to be in the know about. Lacking quite a number of spots, the paid premium subscription is heavily forced upon you to use discovery of extra spots but absolutely not worth the money at all! You should be able to drag around the map to explore new photo places not just around your vicinity. Photographers don't mind traveling for good spots so it seems like this is a pretty important feature!

Hey Ben,thank you so much for your honest opinion. Since my app is not tracking users at all (like most other apps), feedback like that helps me a lot. Have you tried "Around Me"? The feedback I get from existing Premium users is that this is a big time saver on the go. Open a Location or Country to get a draggable map with all spots.Did that help?

What's new

After fully reworking the app with the last version, it was time to improve Around Me, which also resulted in a major overhaul with a new dynamic split view and a brand new feature called "Custom Positions" that lets you plan your trips in advance and see what's near your stops or accommodations, now even in a radius of up to 250km.
