This app only has major cities. That's all great if that is where you are going, but as a traveler I go away from the cities. Nothing about Tonga, Jamaica, many places in the northland New Zealand. Such a bummer that this app isn't as advanced ass I thought.
Good travel guide
I was appalled at how out of date this was. I recently went to Rio de Janeiro to see friends who now live there and I had planned all these activities and they listed over and over again you can't do that, it's unsafe. They explained how the national park had had murders in it recently and they closed the walking trails to Sugarloaf and Christ the Redeemer because people were being robbed and mugged there too frequently. Something as important to safety should really be updated more frequently
Looked promising, but some shortcomings make it hardly usable. The map layer is very poor (just use OSM or gmaps?), interface glitchy and sometimes unresponsive. Bookmarked places don't stand out on the map in any way, nor do they sync with starred places on google or elsewhere. Lot of work left.
It will not rotate, thereore, I can't use my tablet keyboard. A shame, such a simple oversight by the programmers. Will have to try other travel apps. Sad, I was excited to use it. :(
If you want a quick basic intro to a specific city, this is a good place to start. I like that you can mark some of the places as favorites so that you can keep track of things you don't want to miss
This update substantially reduces background battery usage on most devices, and brings several smaller bug fixes.
