What's New in Version 1.1
Added new functionality to change quickly between Pocket Locations' apps
I am using it this week and loving it. The app is helping me find the sites I wanted to see and it gives background info. Gps works well. By the way, Etap hotel in Bayeux is a perfect home base. Having the time of my life. Thanks for the great app.
Good app but light on information
I was looking to use this for a personal tour of Normandy. The design and interface is very good. My complaint is that each of the 40 sites has very limited and basic information (3 to 6 short paragraphs on each). For $5 I was expecting a lot of details and history.
