Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app but, or me its a case of so near but, yet so far. My family and I wanted to find out more about Brighton as we were planning a trip there. One always looks on the App Store for a travel guide or something clever which assists in finding out what is where and so on. This app does all of that but, lacks accessibility, particularly for us as we use the built in screen reader (voiceover) which is part of Apples suite of accessibility options. Its really not difficult to include accessibility to apps as there is much support in this from Apple as well as a fantastic and enthusiastically assistive VI community of IOS users. The main problem seems to be the front end of the app If you turn Voiceover off; Tap one of the front page summary pages; Switch voiceover back on, you can then browse without any access isues from what I could see on first looking. There is even a choice between Map and List which is essential for those of us who can't browse a map. So, get you ann iPhone, iPad, iPod; Go into settings; Then General; Then Accessibility; Switch Voiceover on and listen... Then please fix! :)
Great app for business & leisure
Found this app really useful! I often spend time away from home which can be boring if you don't know the area. I used this app to see where I was staying and what there was to do nearby. I found a great vietnamese restaurant (pho cafe)! I'd certainly recommend this app to anyone traveling to Brighton who is not familiar with the area.
An excellent guide! Found it easy to find loads of great stuff to do
