Ratings and Reviews

Was Hoping for More


"Locate Me" button doesn't work and no filtering options, so just a bunch of points on a map. This version is NOT worth $4.99. Needs a lot more options and bug fixes. I hope the developer makes updates so it is usable since it could be fun to play with.

Waste of money


I spent $5 on this app yesterday. I can open it, but nothing happens when I click the location button or do a search. I've let it sit for several minutes thinking maybe it's just slow, but nothing comes up. When I followed the app support button, it went to a page with links to the creator's other apps but there wasn't anything for this one. Don't buy this app until they fix the bugs!!

This app is a rip off


It doesn't work, no names of historic locations pop up, no additional data for each location pops up.. you used to be able to see names of locations, pictures of locations
, and other related historic data... but no more. Some need to fix this app or it's a waste of money. I am only giving this app one star since zero is not an option
