Good app but poor English
Useful app but the speaker needs to pronounce Th correctly.
Th is not F!
Love this new App!
I found this app in my recommendations list, and checked it out. Happy I did, because I really enjoyed walking these tours! My sister lives around Peterborough and I convinced her trying out the tours with me. We both thought that they were surprisingly precise, and it taught us lots of stuff about the surrounding in Peterborough we would have never discovered without using this application. We were amazed to see the area through different eyes, seeing so much more than we normally would! It was also really fun and interactive, with the audio that tells you exactly where you are as soon as you reach a new area. And really cleverly made like that!
I most enjoyed the tour called the Longthorpe tour, which was really beautiful.
This is an app that is great for people who enjoy the outdoors, or for people with kids who have run out of ideas for a saturday afternoon. The tours will help teach children about nature and animals, and will definitely make up for some family fun and relaxation.
I'd like to see apps like this catch on to a wider group of people. Can also imagine this app working in lots of other places in Britain.
I live in Peterborough and when I came across this free App for Ferry Meadows I downloaded it straight away.
I have walked and cycled around Ferry Meadows ever since I can remember. But what this App does is give you a complete run down of all there is to explore. The App is very accurate and well written.
For the future;
I would like to see other areas of Pererborough included in the future, such as Pererborough City Centre and other city beauty spots, Flag Fen, the Green Wheel, Peterborough Museum and it's walks around the city.
This great little App has so much potential, and I would like to see a Facebook intergration option so I can post the App on my wall, and maybe share the walks that I havel been on for friends and family to see.
Also a name change is needed so new residents and visitors to the city can search for Peterborough and then this will App will pop up. As of now it does not under it's current name and unless you know about the App you would never find it unless like me it randomly popped up in recommendations!
