Nice app :)
I found this app very interesting and quite useful. It is really simply layed out with good pictures. The only minor thing it is missing is a search function. Also some of the descriptions end halfway through a sentence (e.g. La Sagrada Familia and Fallingwater) which is quite annoying! Apart from that very nice for getting to know a bitore about architecture.
Excellent free app
This app lists many excellent modern buildings, organised by town and architect. It gives pics and a short account plus location, website etc. Not sure what the paid for version gives extra but it's a no brainer to have this for free.
It said that my free trial had ended and that I needed to buy the premium version to see the stuff but I just deleted the app and downloaded it again yaay
