I loved this app until I realized that Tripadvisor is biased and does not post all positive reviews. I have confirmed with management at a local hotel that their property no longer gets ANY positive reviews posted because the property rewards employees that are mentioned in positive reviews. That policy is contradictory to what Tripadvisor is used for... Reviews... Good or bad. I can no longer trust Tripadvisor for an unbiased review when I travel and I will start to rely more on Yelp and Google. I am very disappointed in Tripadvisor.
We use this app everytime we are in a new place, mostly to decide on restaurants. We haven't been mislead yet. I hate to waste good rime on poor service or bad food. Great for hotels too!
The application is very useful while travelling, especially in those places which you can download online (not all are available for downloading). BUT the application cannot handle logging in using two devices - every time you will get disconnected, which is frustrating if you are using e.g. tablet and phone. Secondly, the app is not fitted for tablets in general - the menu that is working ok on web, on tablets is misplaced and gets lagged. Also, you can get randomly logged out from app while using it on tablet (and your review is natually not saved as well, however it seems like you did published it) Overall, the app needs much polishing, especially handling being logged in on more than one device simultaneously!
This is the review site I trust the most now. The number of reviewers they have and the level of care and detail reviewers put into their posts are generally very good. You get the odd anomaly but mostly you can genuinely tell what standard a place is. I wish you could rate to the nearest half star. 3 star is classified 'average' and 4 'very good' Some places fall bdtween these two eg just 'good'
When adding a review of my own, every time I tried to correct a capitalization error that was made by their voice to text system, all I had to do was touch the comment and the app close up. I tried 3 times and the same thing happened and I gave up.
Can't "cut and paste" or "share" from the app. Pop-up window annoys you to use the app instead of the browser, now I cannot use the browser without disallowing the permission which I don't know how to do. Forum searches do not come up on general searches, very confusing for casual users. Fix those things and 5 stars because the information trapped on the app is very useful.
