Ratings and Reviews
Cool App for a Cool City
There are so many things to do here in Traverse City, you don't want to miss a thing ! And using this APP will give you the information, the map, the driving directions and more. I own Vacation Rentals here in TC and I love this APP when giving directions, recommending restaurants, suggesting activities, wineries etc.. I show guests how to find the place they are looking for, how to get the place on the map, how to get the driving directions from where they are to where they want to go and then store the location in their "favorites" - so later, when the time is right, they can remember the exact information. I love that this APP lists places in the catagory starting from the closest thing to you at the time, so you don't waste precious vacation time driving around and/or lost. It is very user friendly, you don't have to be a "tech geek" to use it...
Selective coverage and inaccurate
I was excited to read that this app was available. Now that I've used it, I have already removed it. Some of the locations that visitors would find interesting aren't here (the app includes Five Corners Store in Beulah and omits Gwen Frostic in nearby Benzonia). Some of the information is wrong; right under the link for "Point Betsie Lighthouse" it says "visit the oldest lighthouse in Michigan." But you'd have to drive across the state to Port Huron to do that. You'll find better coverage going to the websites of local visitor bureaus.
Missing Menu Icons
Love, TC! ❤ Super great idea but not useful in present format. Problem is the icon disappear from main screen, so it is quite literally "hit or miss" as you must click around on the blank screen until you find the content you are looking for 😏(food, drink, activities, etc.). Once improved this will be very useful!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
