    At first wasn’t very impressed as it would lock up and became useless. However after deleting and reinstalling this app it appears to be working really well. Thank to the developer who reached out to provide support.
  • Great App!

    I have used this app to plan two European trips and have found it invaluable.
  • Exponentially beat my expectations

    By Etlb
    I don't remember how I found out about this app, I just downloaded it thinking it might have some useful information on it, but I am seriously impressed by all of the insider advice it has! Idk where it gets its information from but just looking at the guides for places I have lived I feel 100% confident in using the info on this app to navigate new cities and plan trips. Highly highly highly recommend!!!!
  • Lacking

    By PeeCeeJunior
    It's a pretty app and I like the topographical map features, but it feels barren. Kind of like how Apple Maps first looked compared to Google. I put in the small Vermont towns we stayed in recently and you'd think they were ghost towns with almost nothing listed. The only stuff listed are boring places no one would go out of their way to visit. The cool restaurants with incredibly delicious food? Radio silence. So maybe it's better in big cities, but for something that calls itself an atlas this is pretty sad. I regret buying it.
  • Excellent, except for one thing...

    By TracieFromPahrump
    This App is AWESOME and I have had no problems running it (as others have posted). I love the features and it makes planning a trip a lot of fun. I just wish the App shared info between my devices. I spent a few days planning our next trip to Montana, on my iPad, then learned I could not open that trip on my iPhone. That was a bummer, but my fault for not checking first. I'll just have to tote my iPad everywhere. It's not the end of the world, but it would be great if they added this feature, in the future upgrades.
  • Love it. Needs offline capabilities.

    By airman26
    Best $1 i spent in a while. What would be awesome is coupling this app to an offline gps app like Sygic or giving this app offline capabilities as some places off the beaten path or densely populated areas especially in Asia have a really bad data connection.

    I just don't get how this app gets good rating. I am trying to use it to plan a trip in NYC and this app is just a total mess. Creating a new map is totally unclear. I add a fav to create one, ask me to create a map. Do it. Not saved as my current map. So touch my map name which now I can edit, create a new custom map. After that, the app zoom on the place I am currently instead of staying on new york. There is no clear workflow, no clear way to know what you can do, how to search stuff. I then tried to filter places to eat. Showing me like 3 in NYC with 65% bad rating. Thanks you but no thank you. Clear that I will use yelp instead for food. Then trying to discover places by picture. Search new york -> find picture for new york. Third results are falls. Neat, touch. The place is like 5/10h by car from NYC. Thanks Search. Useless. Good idea, bad execution App.
  • Great Idea! Needs glitches fixed.

    By Tara Nicole_23
    It's a great app, it's got everything I could possibly think of to add to a map i would want to use exploring new places. But it keeps crashing within a few minutes whenever I open it. It's would be a 5 star app if it wasn't so glitchy.
  • Single Best App On The App Store, No Contest!

    By bigjnasty
    I am an avid traveler and avid app connoisseur. I have downloaded at least 2,000 apps since the App Store was first created, and I can say with full confidence that this is the single most innovative, useful, and coolest app I've ever seen. I will use this until the day that I die! It's basically an atlas combined with an encyclopedia in a seamless, beautiful interface. My compliments to the developers and everyone involved in this project. I'll never stop exploring and learning about the world because of this app. Definitely deserves a spot on my home page!
