Ratings and Reviews
The app I’ve dreamed of from Atlas Obscura
I love Atlas Obscura and they’ve needed to move their Atlas to app format for years. This app makes it easier and more fun to explore and add places in your own community that are amazing but relatively unknown!
Highly recommend the app because it makes it easier to see what's interesting around you. Very good for travel, but also worth checking out the “ordinary” places you go because I've found some cool things I didn't know existed.
My App Dream Come True
I’ve been wishing and hoping for Atlas Obscura to release an app and it’s like an early Christmas present to download this today. Truly feel like I hold a secret key not many others know about that unlocks access to the most amazing places hiding in plain sight wherever I travel. Nice to be able to explore directly from my iPhone now!
A must have for those that love to explore!
Finally an app that allows you to discover strange facts and unique things! Great list of curated places in my local area which I’ve already bookmarked for my next trip into town! Look forward to see where this app will take me
