To begin with, the app didn't even start properly. It had endless pop up requests asking for permission to access files and location. They repopulate the moment you select either of the options. When you finally get through that almost endless permission requests pop up. The contents take a long time to load and the map just doesn't work all together. Funny enough when I was rating this app. It asked about if I managed to book flights or change reservations on the app. It would probably help if they start with trying to make it work as a marketing tool before they start thinking of asking people to book their flight on an app that doesn't even work. Pretty disappointing for an official tourism app of a supposed to be a tech advanced country.

After app was installed, it keeps asking permission to acces my photos, media, and files in my phone and I denied it. Why does it needs to acces my photos and files in order to use it? The app start up screen keeps rotating and it even cannot start. It's not functioning.

This could be a pretty awesome and useful app but the losing times are way too long and sometimes things won't even load. Overall it should be a little more intuitive.
