What's New in Version 2.2.1
Good question! In recent versions we made it possible to add your own spots, curate spots from friends, see the city’s points of interest and enjoy seeing exactly what’s around you. This was awesome at the time, but now we’re pushing tweaks, mergers, updates and bug fixes so we’ve:
1. Moved city and cousin search tabs to the main navigation menu.
2. Merged List view with Map view.
3. Tweaked the design all over.
4. Updated the user profile page.
5. Made tags and addresses searchable from the search tab.
6. Fixed several bugs, and speed AND loading issues.
7. You’re welcome.
