Does Not Work!


I bought this app because of the consistently great reviews and because its information is based on Wikipedia. After installing the app all that it did was spin endlessly providing no data whatsoever. I don’t live in an obscure location. I live in New York! So I restarted my iPhone 6 Plus. Same result. So I uninstalled the app and then re-installed it. Same problem. Am I really the only person to encounter this problem? That would be very hard to believe. Are all the great reviews the developers own hype? I hope not. I have contacted the developer and I will modify this review if the problem can be corrected.

Pretty Amazing Actually


Traveling in France currently. Contemplated if I needed another travel discovery app. Turns out I did.

Inquire keeps pointing out things that you don't find in traditional travel apps. Odd slices of information that I could find with some web searches but not as easily (or on one map).

The fact that it doesn't have ads or "experts" makes it feel open-minded, unbiased and quirky. Great for those who travel with an eye toward history.

Edit: One year in, still one of my favorite apps for discovering unmarked bits of history when traveling.
