Doesn't work as advertised.

This app doesn't seem to load fully. My phone had 40Gb free but it had only partial descriptions when looking at the home descriptions. It would not pair properly with Bluetooth, so it didn't narrate through the car and caused problems with the GPS on the car. I had to switch between the audio being played on the phone and then stop it to use the GPS. I would have liked to hear the audio on the way to the house, but this didn't work as advertised. One of the house's audio description did play through the Bluetooth but I have no clue as to why that one worked and none of the others did before and after that one. Interesting app but very frustrating. Overpriced for all the technical problems that kept it from working as advertised.

Don't hesitate, get this.

Just returned from our first trip to Palm Springs and this app proved invaluable. We loved using it in the car and in preparation before we ventured out for neighborhood walks. It's easy to navigate and go about finding a home or business from many routes: the architect, the area, names of building, etc. The map feature is fantastic. We went from place to place and never felt frustrated. I love the old and new photos, as well as the commentary and fun facts about each project. I don't usually purchase too many apps, but this enhanced our visit so much. I wouldn't hesitate.

Essential guide to Palm Springs Mid-Mod treasures! Way COOL.

Palm Springs' amazing cache of mid-century modern architecture is all here in this essential guide. My friends and I were able to access all of the city's most important architecture in the span of a weekend--and we didn't miss anything. The driving tours are chock full of content, with informative commentary from expert historians, high quality photos and video, and insider stories directly from the architects who created their modern masterpieces in the Southern California desert. Do be patient with the download. it's well worth the wait.
