Map directions have been broken since Android 11 as Google Maps hasn't been added to the App Manifest. To reproduce, go to "Map", choose any location, then click the Google maps icon, you'll be greeted with a "Google Maps is not installed or is disabled" error. Would be 4 stars if not for this very annoying and easily resolved issue. 5-stars if I could export all locations to Google Maps directly.

We are really sorry for the trouble and we appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We have implemented a fix regards Google Maps in the latest release and many thanks for the constructive feedback. We will look at the option to export all locations to Google Maps directly in a future release.

It's not really easy to navigate this app, I found quite annoying it's not possible to book tickets from the app. And the link to the website points to the wrong location when trying to buy a ticket.

A simple but very well made app. Can guide you to local sites, gives you a generally good over view of the area, what to expect etc and also lets you track which ones you've been to. Informs you of events, opening times, costs and all other pertinent info. I honestly can't fault it.
