Ratings and Reviews
Meaningless photos and essentially advertising
I’m sure there must be useful information for some areas but I’m in longyearbyen which is remote and has a very interesting history. All the app is giving me is poor photography and essentially ads for places. Really a picture of two beer cans that’s an ad nothing else!!! Should be a useful app needs to be cleaned up of junk
Fantastic Idea and use of AR
Saw this talked about on Reddit and thought I'd give it a shot. Glad I did. The idea behind it is genius and it's a fantastic use of AR...and a lot of fun.
