Update and content problems
Guide has very limited content for $4.99. Some content shows not loading. It says the app has an update (even though I just downloaded it) so I tried that. Once updated on the "ok" screen it freezes and you can't get to the guide. Thought it was a glitch so deleted the app, re downloaded it and updated again- same problem. Please advise...
A couple dozen pretty pictures and nothing useful
Wallpaper has great taste, and I generally trust their recommendations, but this is a worthless app. There are very few recommendations and they basically include no information - just a pretty picture. I never once learned anything of use from it during my recent trip to the city.
