Website is better.

I actually do like the website and think it’s handy... but as far as the APP rating in itself, is much lower. I’m traveling to Mexico soon and there’s a limited list of cities on the app. I can find everything on the desktop website but not on the app. There’s only 68 cities worldwide on the app and when I explore, I can’t find a way back into the main menu so have to close the app on my phone and re-open to get to main menu. Still have to go to the website to find what I want though. The website in itself would be a much higher rating is not recommended. Please update the app to include all cities in your main database! My home (the capitol of Texas) isn’t even on there, even though I’ve left multiple recommendations on the actual desktop website, trying to help others- thinking it would even show up on the app...but it doesn’t.

Developer Response

Hi, Raz. Thanks for your feedback. I guess by the Main Menu you mean the list of the cities. There's a world icon on the top left, that's where you can get back to the list of cities. We might improve it to be more clear for the users.

We also plan to add more cities to the mobile app. Our initial idea was that we don't want to add cities where we don't have too much content yet, but we'll add more cities soon.

Great concept, but needs better curation


I love the idea of local-submitted listings and offline use, but many listings in my own city, Disneyland and Universal Studios for example, don’t meet my criteria for “non-touristy”, so I don’t really trust the listings in other cities either. I downloaded the app because I wanted to feel like I was getting some insider knowledge when I travel, so it’s disappointing to see sites that are literally among the world’s top tourist attractions listed. Needs some kind of stronger criteria.

10/10 must have for backpackers and travelers


Me and my girlfriend used this app during our month long trip across Europe. I cannot recommend it enough - it allowed us to find so many things we otherwise would not have. It truly lives up to its name for allowing you to explore a city and see the local things that most people won't get to see.

Best part is - almost none of it is behind a paywall. I barely know how they're making money!
