Ratings and Reviews
This app makes planning trips really straightforward and organized. I love the ability to arrange places into day plans but I wish the app could figure out the best day plan to add it to and the best position within that day plan (based on distance to other places).
Trying Its Best
The developers are trying their best with this app, but it unfortunately loses out in several key metrics.
• Adding and discovering activities can be pretty rough. A lack of a streamlined discovery mode makes it very difficult to use this app continuously.
• There are weird crashes sprinkled throughout the app. An unexpected one came when I created a trip to a non-curated city and was greeted with my phone’s home screen.
• The release seems rushed, I.e. there is a lot left to be desired feature-wise. It’s tedious to edit the duration of activities in day plans. There’s no information about activities at all. Account management doesn’t exist at all.
All in all, the developers did a pretty good job, but didn’t adequately beta-test the app or complete it before release. It’s a promising start, but unfortunately I’d be unable to use this for my upcoming trips.
Great trip planning app!
Monarch Trips is a great trip planning app that provided all the features I needed: making a day-by-day plan of places to go, giving an overview on a map, and sharing the trip plan with friends. Definitely helped me plan and coordinate!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
