Ratings and Reviews
I love the app.
l did the Skirting Sydney walk on my own and had the best time discovering Sydney in the 1800s and 1900s. I was inspired by stories of women who through adversity or tenacity made a difference to their city which is now my city.
The interactive map and brief description of each point of interest was perfect.
I’m now looking forward to working my way through the other walks and sharing this discovery with others.
Great way to discover Sydney
Nicely made app to help you discover Sydney. It would be good if more walks could be included like the Bondi to Coogee walk.
Be careful of notification setting defaulting to always
The actual content of this app is fantastic. Some excellent history of Sydney presented in some innovative themed walks guided with your phone.
Important-Be careful of the notification setting defaulting to 'always'. I never allow notifications but somehow this app used about 3Gb of phone data while it ran in the background unbeknownst to me, yet I was at some of the actual sites from the app during this time and did not receive any notifications!
