Ratings and Reviews
My new favorite app!!!
Awesome so far! No problems! To the other reviewer, I hope they fixed the problem for, because it's working great for me! This is exactly what I was looking for!
Sorry but this app is crap. Crashes. Freezes.
Subject says it all. App is not useable. There’s no reason a bunch of pins on a map should absolutely kill an iOS app on an iPhone 5. Weird. Just not useable.
I want to like this app...
I love the concept of this app. I think being able to find out more of the history in my surrounding area is a great idea.
I rated this app low because while the concept is great; the execution is poor. Essentially the app is non-functional. It opens, attempts to load and them freezes. I thought there may have been a problem with the installation but deleting and reinstalling did not change the functionality of the app.
I would love to see the developers fix this loading issue. If I was able to use the app in the future I may change my rating but for now this app is a waste of time.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
