Review from A Google User
Overall very interesting app Excellent data (I live in a large and historic city, Philadelphia, so that's probably why there's so much data) but a few nitpicks about execution. The pop up alerts are obtrusive, I would much rather have the option of having my alerts show up in my notification slider or *hint hint* as Google Now cards. Also, no way to mark locations as "read" or something like that or have a filter that removes already read items from the map. Otherwise, an excellent concept and very nice execution.
Amazing History at my fingertips at any location that I find myself in. The Boston area is rich with historic events and places so this might not be as useful in more remote areas of our country, but in Massachusetts it's a great surprise knowing something extra about the locations that I pass by every day!
The most fun I've had on an app EVER This app takes me back years, to my youth. The sights and history are fantastic. Places I never knew, and things about Places I did know, I thought. It's great
Useless First, there is a glitch on the map so that it does not allow me to move the view any direction but up. Second, there is no zoom function on the map. Third, it provided nothing for the entire metro area I live in. An area of over one million and no history, cool stuff....nothing. If this app is only functional for certain areas it needs to say so in the description. Deleted within 10 minutes of installing.
So far so good -- obviously a new app, so I expect changes will come, but the interface is good, and the concept is excellent (and beginning on the path to reaching its value). A couple of things it needs is the ability to add content, or at least integration with the bank of Google Maps data that already exists. Secondly, it would be nice to be able to create "tours" for other people. Perhaps those thoughts come with their own liabilities, though.
I love the premise of this idea, but it gets a little lost in the application. Found some great info on fun, unique sites, but it's hard to find those amidst the mass of information. Some really obvious sites were surprisingly absent, while you're flooded with pointless, unimpressive sites.
Great app for explorers! We used this app to explore DC. Found some really interesting sites, from haunted mansions to underground tunnels. We learned so much more with this and it really made our trip way more fun! Perfect for those who want to learn but hate the traditional tour guides.
