High hopes dashed
Had high hopes for this app which I saw featured in a local newspaper. Downloaded installed crashed repeatedly. Then, when I did get it to work, it gave me 4 results for my town; three of which were primary schools and one was a church. Hardly great days out! In addition to this, they were ALL in the wrong places on the map and miles away from where they should have been.
Great idea. Very bad execution. Back to the drawing board. Deleted.
No iPad native version. Incomplete details for lots of venues. Listed lots of venues you wouldn't class as a "great day out" such as a local university, a pub and a derelict bank.
I wouldn't bother downloading this.
Treasure trove of useful info
This has told me about several great, small places I had never heard of. Thank you.
