Helpful for planning, but the maps need work
This app is great for planning out a trip, but not the best when you're actually on location. So far I've used this app in Rome, Florence, Milan & Paris, with mixed results on each. Overall I would recommend it, especially for planning what to see and do (though some of the things listed as "attractions" are a bit questionable, so when searching by area within a city there is often a lot of junk to sift through). And some of the suggested itineraries are very good, though it would be much more helpful if you could actually get directions from one attraction to the next. Instead itineraries just have vague maps, and you have to navigate away from the itinerary to the actual attraction listing in order to get better directions.
There is a huge number of restaurants listed, but most don't have hours of operation posted or info on prices. Navigating on location has been less than reliable. Many smaller streets don't show up at all on the map, and the blue "you are here" dot was sometimes off by a few blocks. (hint - if you get turned around you can orient yourself by what restaurants are near you on the map. Because there are so many listed, it's often quicker and more accurate than searching the map by street)
Overall, definitely get the app to help plan your trip, then use it along with a separate offline city guide app to fill most of the gaps with the map part.
Best Overall Travel App
Since it's backed by all the reviews of Trip Advisor's web site, this app is more useful than most other apps with much smaller user bases. It's also nice to be able to look up restaurants without having to be connected to the internet (which I'm usually not when traveling abroad). The offline check-in feature is also a good way to track your trip even when not connected to the web.
I didn't have any issues with the blue dot GPS tracking while in London. It even saved me a couple times when Google Maps didn't download enough of the map for offline use.
A necessity for any travel lover!
I love to scroll through the different places, even if I'm not going there anytime soon. This app is helpful when planning a trip, or if you're already in your destination. There is everything you could possibly need in regards to things to do/see, hotels, restaurants, attractions. I'm very impressed because the app includes pictures, descriptions of everything and even tells you the price and hours of operation and phone number. This is genius!!!!!!!
