Would use the app if I could change my location

I move around a lot, and being unable to change location is very inconvenient.

I like the older version bettter

I like the older version of this app better, perhaps not as many features but more intuitive and a greater breath of information. In the new version many places are either not listed or difficult to find, navigation is ackward.

Buggy app

The content is great and if you just want to search locally it’s great. However, if you want to use the app to search a different region it’s impossible. The map just enlarges and then goes back to the smaller size. There is no way to change the region. If you can change regions, then it would be so much better and I would give a much better review.
