"It’s an impressive collection of knowledge, and I think you’d have a hard time visiting a country NOT listed in this app."
- Michael from iPhone App Reviews.net
"This app is so incredibly simple to navigate that it’s almost impossible to realize its full value unless you ever find yourself truly in need of it. Let’s hope that never happens in an emergency situation. But if it does, you’ll be glad your tour guide is close at hand."
- Michael Essany from The iPhone App Review
