Customer Reviews

Quick design-minded city guide

This is a fun and useful pocket-style guide to LA. It provides a look at some of the attractions for the kind of design-minded people who are going to be reading Wallpaper--spotlighting boutique and luxury hotels, art museums and galleries, buildings with interesting architecture, well-reviewed and unique eateries, and interesting and famous shops. This app won't give you a comprehensive guide to LA, but it is a great way to supplement your trip planning by recommending neat and cool places, including some that you might not find out about otherwise.

The other reviewer talked about ads and blatant promotion of products, but I didn't encounter anything when I was using the app (perhaps the reviewer was referring to an earlier version). Instead what you have is a curated guide to some of the neighborhoods, sights, and sounds of LA.

A couple things that could be done to improve the app:
-Adding more photos of the spotlighted attractions/shops/restaurants (most have one photo, max 2)
-Full reviews for all of the places mentioned (many places are mentioned in passing but when you click on the name for more info, there's just minimum information of name and location. I believe any place mentioned should have a full description and photos.)

All in all, an interesting look at the design-focused sights in LA and a good supplement to any trip there.
