The concept of this app is great. ...the problem is, it's completely broken. For months I was getting the bug that wanted me to update even though no update was available. Once that was patched, now I am completely unable to actually login to my account. I'm able to reset the password so the account definitely still exists, yet it doesn't like my email anymore and says it's "badly formatted." I don't even have the option to delete my account. Contacted support and nothing. It's been 6 days.

App locks up, I get a map on the screen, then it is so incredibly slow that I cannot use. It's as if this app is written for another OS and not properly ported over to android. I was really looking forward to using it. Update : App actually works, but is buggy and occasionally crashes, usually when internet is slow / poor. It would be nice if you could load an area for offline use due to poor internet in some areas. I find the information / sites to be super helpful on my current roadtrip.

Yikes, we feel you there. Our original launch was buggy. With new features, a lot more users, and big changes, we think it's worth a second chance! Let us know what you think and hopefully we can earn a 5-star review from you ;-) Warmly, Campbell

I really want this app to succeed but i keep having technical difficulties. 4/17/21 Getting better. Latest updates have really increased the amount of information about places and events. I am getting more and connected to other nomads. I really like what you are doing and I will keep using the app. I find that the app still crashes. It also uses a lot of bandwidth. That makes it impossible to use when I am in Mexico or places without solid internet.
