Hangs up on iPad
I made it past the “select an itinerary“ screen but when I tapped on the historic screen, it hung on a screen with the message “Choose a flat surface.”
Great Concept, But...
I can’t get passed the “choose your city” page, and those cities are not labeled, so I’m only sure of London and maybe Bath? Surely Oxford should be included? Wanted to use this; it looks great, but it’s not opening on my iPhone.
