Winter in America, not Christmas in America would be a better title
Ok, first of all there are some very nice photos, but I thought less than half of them were holiday looking. Also, I found the photos being divided into three different slide shows inconvenient. I wanted to run it with music on my desk and would have to take time to change it. Last, I found the format confusing. You have to go to the map, select an area then start the slide show ( ok, it sounds easy) but, It took me sometime to figure this out. Some instructions on yhe main page would have been helpful, I even resorted to emailing the app support for help but received no response. I find the app Christmas!!! Was better for what I wanted. Think there is room for some more holiday slideshow apps.
A wonderful gift app for the holidays!
A beautiful collection of holiday images from across America. To show individual pins for all the photographs in a gallery just tap on a gallery icon from the map, and then tap the red thumbtack.
Beautiful winter/ Christmas photos from around the country can be enjoyed as a slide show with or without music. Well worth the money!
