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.

GREAT APP! Love the UX! But 5 stars when they can add a way to pin a spot we may come across, walking or driving, and that's NOT on the map already AKA "hidden gems." This way we can see where a particular spot on the map is that we can come back and photograph to share when we have our gear or the time to take a worthy photo to submit. This is different than "bookmarks" currently in app of locations already submitted.

Hi Omar, thanks for your review & feedback on 'bookmarking' locations you want to visit. In the app, you can 'bookmark' locations and view them in a list on your profile. We are making improvements to saving locations & creating lists — and we agree, having locations you bookmark visualized on a map would be very helpful! Ty again for sharing this.
