An essential app for everyone from the worldwide traveller to the city break couples. It can be a bit overwhelming at first as there's a lot going on within the app, I recommend getting used to it before you go away!
It's useful when you're travelling to some places especially when you've never been there before Important info like opening hours, fee, metro station and of course ut's free☺
Disappointed - they did not cover much. They only focus on touristy cities. They did not include Columbo and Kandy in Sri Lanka, and several untouristy cities across the globe.
Used in NYC and London. Great for find quintessential spots of each city. Found sight I didn't know were there, like Ulysses S. Grant's tomb in NYC.
Buggy at times: On some maps, once you zoom in to attractions or places, all places' marks have the same title and info even though it's all marks for different locations, so you practically cannot get info about anything. Other maps worked rather fine, though, well, to the extend of the authored site info. However, this app runs in the background all the time and restarts itself even after it was force-closed. Also send notification time and again. Really annoying for an app I use and need once in 6 months or less and don't care the least about the rest of the year! LonelyPlanet, stop being so frigging full of yourselves! De-installing!
A great way to get an overall sense of a city. And much better than the competitors I have used. Which admittedly is a pretty low bar.
This update substantially reduces background battery usage on most devices, and brings several smaller bug fixes.
