Ratings and Reviews
GREAT informational app!
Loved loved loved this app. We traveled around the Kenai Peninsula and up to Denali and always found great stuff using this app. It has all sorts of great recommendations and we learned a lot about Alaska. Also great for my kids to listen and learn about flaura, fauna, history and sites we were visiting. Highly recommend to anyone traveling (or living) in Alaska. Wish there were more travel apps that were as good as this one!
This app is a hidden gem
I used this app for driving from Seward to Anchoarage and then to Denali. A gold mine of info! It told me things to see and do and had interesting stories about the places along the way. I wish I knew about this app before I came to Alaska. There's a travel guide on the home screen with great tips for when to come, where to go, what to do, etc. Thanks for all the hard work!
Ditto on Hidden Gem Review
This app IS a hidden gem. There is amazing amount of information in it and the audio files are terrific. Someone worked very hard on this app and it shows. Thank you. I will use it on my upcoming trip. I have been to Alaska five times already and have found things that I didn't know about it and places to go that I was not aware of prior to having this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
