Ratings and Reviews
Update to include new sites really appreciated
The app is really good in terms of providing information about UNESCO World Heritage Sites and has been recently updated to show the new sites added to the list up to 2016. Highly recommended!
Love it... But
I love this app, because we are able to find the UNESCO as we travel. we also use the site to mark off the ones we have seen and still need to see. we have found sites we never knew existed in the area. However, the app needs the following:
1. Interactive map to find sites as you drive. Like Yelp or any other restaurant guide. Make it a little more practical to use as a tool to find and enjoy the sites.
2. More information on the sites. Yes the main website has more, but you don't always have access to the web if you are traveling. My SIM card would cost a fortune to use Internationally. Often guide books have nothing on smaller UNESCO sites.
Thanks, this app is great! We have been to more than 30 sites and will continue to explore the rest!
I love this app since it's very easy to search through each country's full list of UNESCO world heritage sites and it has great photos and descriptions of each site. However, I am also unhappy with the bug that is causing the "visited locations" section to only show the first few places rather than the entire list of visited places. Hopefully this will be fixed in an update soon!
