Great that the app can be used offline. And they really have interesting places. I even bought the guide for Zurich -- the city where I am living since more than 30 years -- and I am still able to find some good tips every now and then.
Great app for finding local's favorite places and not the regular touristy standards that are already well covered in all the other guide books and apps. Also customer service was very helpful in getting app on my both my android and apple devices. Off line map works great.
I used this app for a recent stay in Paris. The app provided many great ideas for places to visit, that we used, places that you will not find in guide books. But why does it store all its data in local memory, rather than the SD card. This is a limitation for cheaper phones with less internal storage. Changing this would be an improvement.
It would be very helpful in LIST view if there was an option to only see entries within the current zoomed MAP view. Otherwise seeing the entire list seems cumbersome and useless to me because I don't know where each place is relative to my location without opening it first. NOTE: I'm a newbie to the app, maybe I'm missing something, but I couldn't find a setting.
Woefully lacking. A search for bars in my mid-Manhattan neighborhood yielded ONE bar within a half mile and two more within a mile. I can think of 3 dozen bars within a half mile. Anything a mile away is NOT in "the neighborhood" by any New Yorker's reckoning. Don't waste your money on this one.
Spotted By Locals is great, just what I needed when planning my trip to Istanbul, I liked it so much that I also decided to buy my own city (Dublin) to discover new places. I later decided to apply to become a Spotter myself and was lucky to be selected! I'm really enjoying it, I am sure anyone else will also like it as much as me :)
We totally re-engineered and re-designed the Spotted by Locals app!
☞ New feature: add your own spots (like a hotel)
☞ New feature: See which spots were newly added
☞ New feature: Search all articles
☞ Much faster maps
☞ A new "2018 proof" design & user interface
