Customer Reviews

Must have for all serious travelers

I typically travel 15-20 countries each year and consider Spotted by Locals my must-have guide. Their recommendations are excellent, particularly when you tire of the standard tourist recommendations. From great dress shops in Paris to unknown former prisons in Tallinn and lovely cafes in San Francisco, they will help you feel more like a local. (Also, the app support is top notch!)

Great when it actually works

When the app actually works, it's great. I've used the recommendations and haven't been disappointed yet. However, lately it seems like 80% of the time the app won't work. It will open, but if I try to click on a guide that I've previously purchased, nothing happens. Also, why does the app need my location always? Or at all?

Location ON requirement

Why does it require Location Services ON when the app is suppose to be able to work OFFLINE? I purchased Chicago and since it requires Location ON, I went to Location services to try to turn it on but it it not listed under LOCATION SERVICES app list. So I simply toggled the actual Location services OFF/ON that would apply to ALL the app but no success of the app ever working. POS!
