Ratings and Reviews

Very useful map app

Niqa5555

A great little app that tells you all about anywhere you are visiting and suggests books to read and places to visit if you want to know an area better.

Also a good way of finding out about books you might not have heard of!

I thought I'd give it a go, tried it, liked it and now use it everywhere I go.

Used it abroad recently and found it soo handy when looking for places to go, love the bit where I can get ebooks too.

Well done whoever you are and I look forward to seeing more in the future.

Awesome app!

This is a brilliant idea. Well executed and intuitive. I have no excuse about finding out about things that are on my doorstep! Holidays and weekends away will not be the same now and I love the celeb houses! The database will get bigger over time and this app is a keeper for me.
