Ratings and Reviews
Could be improved...
Fairly functional app but could work more for users who want to plan their day better. It would be useful to develop the ‘favourites’ aspect and allow users to view this selection on the map according to day (showing Sat or Sun only) as well as indicating at a glance which locations require prior booking, without having to tap into each location individually. This way users can plan the easiest/best route for each day to be able to see their selection.
I had hoped that last year’s reviews would be a thing of the past, but was able to use this today only for my saved choices. No individual info was accessible- access, background, nothing, just emptiness. Such a shame.
Difficult to use
This is not laid out in a very helpful way with Collections, Highlights, Walks rather than Borough by Borough. I would like a version of the paper guide which is readable on the screen.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
