Don't waste your time. There is little to interactivity This is a 15 page pamphlet.
Prettiest app ever, valuable info, but un peut skimpy for the price?
"Keys to the Fleas" is probably the best app currently on this topic. The fleas are going to be a main focus of my upcoming 5th trip to Paris, and it's great to have this info in one place rather than having to search general guidebooks. The illustrations and page design are the prettiest I've ever seen. Most of what's here is useful, esp links to the seasonal events' sites. That said, though, for $1.99 it could include a little bit more. E.g., the 3 "Resources" pages could be expanded beyond 5 French phrases, 5 vocabulary words, and a depiction of the numbered arrondissements with no other ref points. Can you flesh this out, please, perhaps with attention to the needs of first-time Paris visitors? The "Trade Tips," while valuable, are too few and grouped somewhat arbitrarily under such vague headings as "Maximize Shopping," "Practical Stuff," and the like. Maybe add a list of some major types of merch (paper ephemera, fashion, furniture, fine art, Art Nouveau, jewelry, etc) connected to the markets that are best for each? I'll report back on accuracy after returning from Paris in mid-Oct. Nevertheless, merci for this app, so far I'm liking what's here!
