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.
Nice app, but users could help improve it Many of the articles in my area have the wrong location. I can report a problem and say that the location is wrong, but it doesn't have an option for me to report the correct location.
Need to be able to exclude sources It's using a lot of different feeds for info, but doesn't allow you to disable any of them. For my use case, I'm only ingested in the obscura and this app is full of pointers to typical tourist traps.
Removal of features made me uninstall This was a really nice app, back when you used to be able to disable categories and specific sites from showing up. Now you can only prevent active notifications from happening, and have to browse through the things you aren't interested in, like yoga shop and hipster bar reviews whenever using that app.
