Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This is a very useful app, but has not been updated in over two years. It is no longer fully functional on iOS 13 and is missing 3 years worth of new listings, which is unfortunate and frustrating for users like myself who paid for the convenience of the app - since all heritage sites and information are freely available online, but the ability to see them on a map and to save visited sites (including a date) is well worth the price. HarperCollins, please update this app or refund your customers!
