We are so sorry to have caused these bugs in the first place, and we offer a big "thank you!" to the many affected customers who helped us understand and resolve the problem.

Helpful App for Any Traveler

Excel1001

This app is fantastic for anyone planning for a trip or just winging it in a new city. It contains plenty of helpful information so you don’t need to lug your book around if you don’t want to. And the app is a great companion with it!

My only grip is a tiny one. I wish there were a few tweaks to the UI. For instance, on the homepage searching for a city, if they had added the alphabet (sort of like that seen in the contacts tab) would be extremely helpful to find a city that your looking for.

Other than that, this app is great for any traveler!

Developer Response

Thanks for the great suggestion, Excel1001! We'll pass it on to our team. Currently, there's a search bar at the top of the screen so you can search for the city you're looking for. If we don't yet have a guide available for a city you search for, you'll be able to vote for it. The cities with the most votes will be added sooner.

Great app!

I love all the fantastic information this app gives you about your destinations. I used it to plan a trip through New Orleans and we were able to find where to go, where not to go, and the good places to eat as well. I have been having some glitches with the website links not working to the tour or restaurant I was looking at, and it was a little annoying to have to go back to my browser and type it in, but really that’s my only complaint. A great app!

Developer Response

We're glad we could help you explore New Orleans. Thanks for the feedback about the links not working. We'll let our team know so they can investigate. Cheers!
