Leaves a lot to be desired…
I’ve been a fan of the Wallpaper books, mostly because they show some cool spots and have some great photography. But the app that they have created seems to be a poor adaptation of a pretty decent book. The user interface isn’t that great and a lot of the content is hidden deep within in the app. That means if you are lucky enough to find it once and look for it again, you often can’t locate it. Super annoying. In addition, there are so many places of interest that are nowhere to be found in this app and too many places that are listed and only feature an address and phone number – no photos or even a description. Overall, it is not a bad app, but it’s also not too great. Definitely not worth the $5. If you are looking for a more complete and better alternative, I would highly recommend the Bilbao travel guide app from Eusko Guide. It is similar to the Wallpaper guide but much more encompassing and easier to use.
