Nice app, when it's not crashing
UPDATE: it's been nearly *two years* since the app was last updated in June 2014. It's looking really dated at this point, and the crashing continues unabated. Plus, the UI is a mess: search barely works, and there's no visible way to save hotels for future reference. Maybe the company is going out of business?
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I travel fairly often for business, and this app is indispensable. But the crashing problem is ridiculous. Every single time I use it for more than ten minutes, it crashes, even when erased and newly installed. Every. Single. Time.
On the plus side, the high-res photos are as helpful and thoughtful as everyone else is saying, and their collection of reviews is fairly comprehensive. The big problem is the app's lack of stability: it's maddening to have to navigate back to where you were so regularly.
LOVE this app...can't wait until they post more hotel reviews!
This app has helped me book several of the hotels I have on our Europe itinerary. Love the photos and love the information it provides.
Great content, sluggish app
Overall I'm very pleased with the detail and objectivity Oyster provides but find the app to be very slow and take extended time to load the pictures even over wifi.
