We believe intercultural misunderstanding to be the root of most conflicts in the world. We are sad about "Starbucksification" and overtourism. We hope to create a little change by encouraging travellers to experience cities from a local's perspective and learn about their culture.

Our Spotters live in the city they write about, speak the local language, write only about their favorite spots. Spotters love promoting quirky and locally owned spots and keep their tips up-to-date. Co-founders Sanne & Bart meet all Spotters in person.

Version 6.5

You probably won't notice the difference, but we resolved a few very minor bugs and upgraded design a little bit! The app is now even more stable and fast.

Ich war immer auf der Suche nach ‚echten‘ Insider Tipps. Hier hat man eine ganze Stadt voll. Ich kann die schlechten Bewertungen überhaupt nicht verstehen. Eine Stadt kostet nur die Hälfte eines Buch-Stadtführers und ich hab schon so geniale Ecken dadurch gefunden - selbst in meiner Stadt, an denen ich schon hundertmal vorbei gekommen bin und mir das nie aufgefallen war.

Inspiring Ideas - Excellent Spots

I‘ve used the app in cities I consider I know fairly well and am continuously surprised and delighted by the ideas and spots I find! Good to have some real Insider Tipps shared and well described by locals who obviously know (and LOVE) their city!
The concept of Spotted by Locals is really charming and a refreshing and charming idea in times of mass- and group tourism flooding the world - great stuff to be discovered by individual travelers who don’t want to simply be a tourist!
The new features of the app are very useful and I really like the map and the sorting function! Off course I‘ve already added my personal favorites and am looking to be back and use the Spotted by Locals app in places I‘ve been and new exciting cities around the world!

Nach Update alle Favoriten weg!

In allen bezahlten (!) Städten sind nach dem letzten Update die angelegten Favoriten verschwunden.

Thank you for being a user and for your comment. Indeed our apps are paid - for Euro 4 you will have new up to date tips "for life". We think this is a pretty good deal if you compare it to traditional city guidebooks. As to your very understandable and good point of criticism: because we want users to be 100% anonymous, we do not let users log in or save any user data on our servers. Unfortunately that means your favorites are removed if you reinstall your app... We are looking for an alternative! Do you really find our locals' tips worth only 1 star :'( ? If you would consider this, that would be really wonderful! Reviews are super important for us, as we have no promotion budget.
