Started out working fine. Lately wont let me upload photos to my reviews. Wont let me view average, poor, and terrible reviews unless they are ticked off with good or very good. Makes everyone a judge of food when based on a personal experience. Is everyone meant to be a judge of food? 3 michelin star restaurants getting terrible reviews? Pfff... They would not have stars if they were so terrible. More likely it is that the reviewers palette is poor and simple and not understanding what their eating. But still they judge
The downloadable city guides were really much more useful but since consolidating into a single application it's become fairly redundant. The android smartphone version has some functionality including access to saved trips(was useful in city guides) . The tablet version seems to have limited functionality and doesn't allow for saved items or trips even when logged in. It also requires a data connection. It's essentially their website accessible via an application... Seems to have gone backwards in terms customer experience and innovation. Quite disappointing.
Edit Feb 2016 keeps crashing when I'm mid review and it's not saved in drafts. Difficult to find specific hotel or restaurant because it seems to either search by name or location so you either get all venues with that name in all locations or all venues in the location you enter! Giving up and reviewing on Google Maps from now on. Seems very easy to view and write reviews. Forget I'm not using the full website version when I'm using it. Quick and simple iconography and large touch areas make it easy to use on a tablet too
The app for Android tablet is different from the app for Android phone, even though it is the same install. You cannot save favorite restaurants, hotels, attractions, etc... and you cannot access your saves made on the app running on Ipad or Android phone or desktop. Please, please, please change this so that those of us who use TA on their tablets when we travel can access the benefits of TA.
Drop the "vegan options" and "vegetarian friendly" from the restaurant filters. I recently did a search and every bloody restaurant in the city I'm going to was listed. Get back to pure vegan and vegetarian restaurants. Another annoying feature is the amount of notifications you get after you've viewed somewhere; "did you visit (place name)? Others would love to hear your opinion". Stop it. What used to be a great app has turned to crap.
What did you do to my favourite app? I can't add photos anymore. I am having problems adding reviews. I prided myself on leaving a review everywhere I went and now I am having difficulties because the app messes up ALL THE TIME! Please fix it.
