Developer Response

We are sorry to hear that. When you download the app there is a free map which should help users to decide if they want the other maps or not.

Excellent concept!


Simple functionality and a fun way to get quickly into the history of the city you're visiting. The easy, intuitive movement through maps made me feel like doctor who, with time at my fingertips! This feature together with entertaining anecdotes (but also usual useful streetnames/landmarks etc) makes this a better prospect than googlemaps at the moment in terms of feeling the heritage of a place as well as its geography. I look forward to seeing other cities as the app develops!

Excellent idea thats useful and informative.


Really great app! Easy to use and packed with interesting facts and images which brings the history of the city alive. It’s a kind of cross between googlemaps and a history lesson. Informative and entertaining at the same time.
