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.
Loved it with one fatal flaw I really really love this app and I had it on my old phone perfect ten. But after installing on my new phone it is worthless. I understand the need to make money but I don't want notifications saying business are near by. I know i can select another category but I want all the categories except shopping. Make them tic boxes instead of all or nothing choices and this app is an eleven out of ten. Thanks for all your hard work nitanic labs. I love all that you do.
Okay App is a great idea, but doesn't seem to actually do much. Despite there being dozens of interesting food places in my town, the closest one it shows is almost 50 miles away. There are dozens of interesting historical places and sites with neat architecture in my city, none of which are listed. Not sure if this is something that's being worked on, but for right now I don't see a point in using this app.
I love to learn history, but I live in a big city and was a little overwhelmed with so much information. It would help if it could stop the repeats. Also, I think it's important to add the ability to zoom in on those very small photos and increase the size of the font a little. I really enjoyed the app. It's a wonderful learning tool. Unfortunately, I just don't have the time.
Must Have Location Turned On This didn't show anything but museums if I used the manually entered location. Once I turned on location finder on my phone, it started working. It seems to be missing a few restaurants and drinking establishments or places for fun in Plano and the Dallas Metroplex. But, I think the app is just passing what it gets from the Internet from Google and other places it uses. This would be useful as a general locator of these places for a new visitor to the area. I will start using it and update my review.
fun, but not always the most current info It's a fun app because it just runs and notifies you when you're near something interesting. Of course, you can pull it up and search manually if you like. you can filter out things you are not interested in. My only issue is that a lot of the things it recommends pull up articles from several years ago. This is important to me as a I live in an area that has seen a lot of growth and development just the last couple years, so current information would make this more useful.
I have to agree with Melissa Jensen on this. It's a great idea, but not fully organized yet. There are plenty of locations not mentioned, and there are plenty of junk locations that are there instead. Also, they've partnered with a number of different web sites to bring this information to their app. Great. Why can't I pick one of the partners and only view theirs? For example one partner is Food Network. Why can't I view only Food Network's cards? Also, if I'm on blue tooth, I shouldn't have to tap read aloud. If I have a blue tooth it should automatically read it. According to the help page, it says I have to tap it. No. I'm really a bit disappointing. It has potential, but needs to move forward with better options and locations.
