This app makes no sense. Isn't it supposed to show locations near me for good photo opportunities? That was my impression from the description. It completely failed. It was showing places 300+ miles away. And I live in the 5th largest US city, so something should come up near me. I couldn't figure out how to show me locations in my area. Isn't that the point!? This app was showing me random locations that made no correlation to where I was. Complete waste. Uninstall.

I absolutely love Explorest. Throughout my experience as a photographer, I have been in need of finding photography locations. I've done research and it is hard. Finally Explorest was released and it changed my life. I have been able to go to stunning locations to shoot with ease. With it now being released on Android I no longer have to go to my friends house just to use his Apple for a location. Love the app 100%. Best app ever.

The idea is good but there is nothing special this app can provide that a simple internet search can't. In fact, some local travel blogs or YouTube travel videos would provide better locations and directions. It's just useless to give permissions for this app to do what a simple Google search can do. Also, the locations are very very limited.
