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.
Atlas Obscura is amazing; the app is a little clunky
I would love to give this app 5 stars - I consider Atlas Obscura an essential travel tool through which I’ve found some amazing places. I’m docking a star because the app has a few minor issues with the interface: the pins are hard to accurately tap on the map view(particularly in places with lots of pins close to each other), sometimes there’s a confusing lag when adding a place to your want to go or have been lists, the list view (as opposed to the map view) doesn’t always show consistent results, among others. None of these little issues are make or break items but added together they’re a little annoying.
I’ll be honest…
I’ve been pestering AO for years about developing an App, countless emails and DMs, and finally here we are… what a glistening, shimmering, hunk of gold buried in the mud and soil of the last year and a half! Now, here comes the honesty; this review is coming at you live after mere minutes of smashing that blue “get” button, and instantly I knew THIS is the app I’ve been asking for. This steps up AOs game to new levels. This is an instant five star review!
