I am not a "visit 20 places under 12 hours" type of traveler. Of the Cities that are currently available, I find the information categorized in such a way that is very useful in setting a framework for my visit. Fodor's city overview write-ups got the point across. This helps me choose the neighborhoods/areas for that day's visit based on the best mix that fits the purpose of my trip.
If the Guide has a feature that will allow me to see how all the markers I have tagged as "Love" (to visit) fall on the map, that will be even better. For this reason, I give it a 4-stars rating.
Maps, history, great convenient resource
Great! Loved the convenience of a travel book on my smart phone. The maps were such an easy reference. Great to read history and details about sites we were enjoying. I just wish you had more cities on this app!
Too much work for little return
You have to go to the area of the city & then pull up what you want: such as restaurants. If you are unsure where the restaurant is you are screwed. I entered the name of a very popular restaurant in San Francisco and it had no clue.
Also, there's no Portland, OR. So if you needed that you'd have to pay 1.99.
There's is a glitch with the program maintaining its integrity. You'll notice fluctuations.
I love Fodor's Travel Books, but they have a lot of work to do on this. I deleted it.
