Ratings and Reviews
The beginning of the end...
Tons of kooks “doing it for the gram” will ruin previously beautiful spots all so the developers can CHARGE YOU MONEY in the app to “unlock” these secrets. Shameful.
What’s going to happen next: you and 1,000+ of your new best friends (other people using the app) are going to trip over each other to get the exact same, unoriginal, played out shot to flex on social media.
The developers are a bunch of neo-bro silicon beach KOOKS.
Too few places with free locations listed. Even if you do pay for the locations there’s still not enough to make it worth spending the $ to unlock the locations. Not worth keeping this app.
Developer Response ,
Hi Nikki, thank you for your review! We’re sorry to hear you didn’t find our app useful or help save you time discovering beautiful places to explore. We charge a subscription fee (monthly for only $4.99/mo) to unlock all the app's Location Insights because they include expert tips shared by the photographer (e.g., GPS coordinate of where they stood, best times to go, field tips to get the shot, image metadata). Our contributors have spent countless hours traveling and have taken the time to prepare these insights for our user community, which is why we share our revenues with them. We hope you can give us a try again in the future; please email us at email@example.com if there is anything else we should to know to improve our product. Cheers!
Polished app with lots of thoughtful details although I understand the controversy. Pricing is stiff however so doubt I’ll be able to afford being paying customer. The submit feedback button is giving an error “your device doesn’t support composer sheet” on iphone XS so sharing here: it would be nice to be able to filter results, like filtering out photos requiring a drone.

Hi ascorbique - thank you for your honest and thoughtful review! We’re glad you find the app polished with lots of detail, and that’s a great suggestion to be able to filter out image types — we’ve added this idea to our roadmap! Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org — we’d like to share something with you and also help you trouble shoot the error message you’re encountering!
