Ratings and Reviews
This app is by far the worst I have purchased. Walking round Belfast it didn’t even have the main tourist locations plus the descriptions we very hit and miss sometimes saying there was an issue displaying the page!! Usability is horrific and really struggled to home in on item I wanted to view. Paid for it and deleted same day don’t waste your money!!

Hi there, many thanks for feedback. But a bit of a ? as we don’t have any message such as “error displaying a page”. In fact we don’t really have any pages within the App as it’s all AR. But f you could point out one of the attractions missing then happy to look into.
Dont waste your money
The app cuts out when using... it freezes up and goes dark screen when you don’t want it to

Many thanks for your review. If possible could you provide more information as this has never happened in any testing or as far as we are aware. Could you comment on what product you are using it eg iPhone 8 and what iOS? Many thanks. As no response suspect tankie41 is fraudulent - no reported crashes in any Analytics.
