Great idea; execution could be better I agree with those who find it difficult to use at times. My main complaint is that there is no way to back up one screen. You tap a point of interest, and the little black information rectangle comes up. Fine. Now I want to go back to the screen I just tapped on to tap on another point of interest. Can't do that. The left arrow and "go back" buttons take you all the way to the app's opening screen. Tapping "find" again takes you to the screen with the black rectangle you were just trying to get off of. Getting to the map with all the local points of interest once again takes about six button taps. Kludgy.

What's Up With Search I click on Magnifying Glass (Search?) And I can't enter any text. The developer should learn about standards in an App. This app may be packed full of good info but if I can't find it on my terms in a reasonable amount of time, it gets uninstalled quickly. Don't want them getting info from my device while I can't even get the benefit I expected when I downloaded.

Good idea, bad execution Slow and clunky interface. Map has no standard controls like plus/minus and keep changing sizes while landmark icons remain large. Did not find it intuitive or easy to use.

Great app Excellent application that provides context for trips and vacations. Easy to use and a reliable source for vetted information. A must have for anyone seeking a richer experience on travel.
