How can a walk show app fail to have a walk score "heat map"? I just want to work out what neighborhoods are walkable enough to consider buying a house there. I can't even engage with the house and apartment advertising side of this app because it doesn't answer this basic question. The commute functionality is nice, but I have a family that are at home all day while I work. I want to know if they will enjoy the neighborhood and get exercise while I am out, and if my evenings and weekends will be pleasant.
I like the basis of it, it could be a great app. But i can't use it like i need. When i click a marker it should not go back to the same colour afterwards. It is very hard to keep track when there's a lot of markers in one area. Plus the emails dont open the stupid app. It offers to download the app but not open the suggested listings IN the app.
I just wanted to see what the listed businesses were for my new rental. The site made me download this extremely slow and nonworking app with a bad UI to do so. Shame on you, Walkscore. I'll be deleting this app and looking at Google Maps instead.
States the obvious Basically a synopsis of the app can be written as follows... City=walkable (because there's lots of stuff in the city, like restaurants and places to work everywhere. Suburbs = less walkable, cause the suburbs are more spread out and are less urban, or "sub- urban" as it is also known to be called. Rural = car dependent (or horse), cause stuff is a long way off! Genius! Maybe there is more to it than this, and there should be. Two cents... add a crime overlay to the algorithm. Gonna uninstall now.
I have just started using this app and so far I love it. I'm looking for my 1st home and it has helped me decide if I should even bother looking at the house or not. I have 3 children who are growing up and will be eventually taking public transit. Great idea!
Needs Tweaking between app and site I don't understand how there's an option to have listings emailed to you based on your search but when those same emailed listings are searched for through the app they don't exist. Please clarify why that happens or fix. It also appears that many of the listing are not actually available. There needs to be some diligence about maintaining current listing.
