I found the app to be very useful for pointing out areas if interest in the city. The only complaint is that the app crashes frequently, especially when the GPS is used.
Awful! Crashes every 10 secs.
One of the worst. Cannot use the app for 10 secs without it crashing. Huge, over 200MB, and utterly useless. Horribly designed and way over priced. Only lists a few of amazing landmarks in Palm Springs. Don't believe a word of all the positive reviews you see. These are most likely the developers or their friends. Instant delete from my iPhone.
Great tours and audio.
App features great tours and audio commentary for each stop. Like that it features multiple tours! Looses a star for low res graphics - needs to be upgraded for retina display.
