Traveling? Get this app, you won’t regret it!
I used this app on a road trip with my brother, and we had a blast with it. We stopped into places that we normally would have driven past without a thought. We met some interesting people and learned a few things also. This app definitely added to our trip and can’t wait to get the rest of my family involved.
Two thumbs up to Fotospot!

Thanks @LuomaFam! - Appreciate the kind words. The Fotospot Team
Lots of potential but leaves a LOT to be desired yet
Much potential here but they need to do a lot more to make this app more than what it is.
1st - needs way more spots listed, it is fine to get user added spots but the developers need to go into certain areas and add more popular spots. There is no reason for some of these major hot spots and destinations like the outerbanks to have one or two items, developers, do the work and add spots. And you need to make it much easier to find and add a spot for the user added spots. Very convoluted. Give users bonus points for adding spots and you might get more people doing it.
2nd - not enough participants on this ap to show more photos and give feedback. Most spots only have one photo. And just not enough spots or incentives to make people use the app.
3rd - make an option to select multiple photos at a time and choose photo albums from your phone. The ap is very slow and I don’t want to add one at a time. This makes people less likely to bother adding more or any at all.
4th - let people leave reviews/feedback about the location/site or star value rating on if worth visiting or not.

Hiya CrunchyMama1— Thanks so much for all the suggestions. 1. More spots: We totally agree! To set the stage, Fotospot is an unfunded app that only two people work on in their free time so we're adding attractions as fast as we can. We currently have over 6,000 curated attractions in all 50 states. Also, users can totally submit attractions and we do give extra points for a submission (plus the submitter gets a "submitted by" credit in the description). 2. Again, can't agree more! Check out Los Angeles. We started in LA and that experience is probably more what you're talking about. Most attractions have multiple photos and users submit new attractions daily. 3. The ability to add multiple photos is on our product roadmap. Still a few projects in front of it, but it's definitely on the list. Lastly, when people add photos to attractions, they can comment or leave attraction feedback during that process. Thanks again and hope that helps! The Fotospot Team
So much potential
I really like the idea of this app. I think it’s cool that it lets you know hidden gems that are near you. A big problem I have with it is when you try to check in. You can be at a location and it constantly says you aren’t close enough. I think you need to broaden the check in to at least 5 miles around the cite. A lot of the cites don’t have great reception so you should be able to check in when you can. There is no benefit in lying so it would just be nice to still be able to post it. I tried to add a site but it didn’t end up letting me put the state and it didn’t save. So that seemed like a glitch too.

Hi agshe kwjs— Thanks so much for your review. You need to be at least .25 miles from the attraction to check-in. For every check-in, users get 15 points that they can use towards buying free products in our store. If we made the radius any larger, it would be too easy to game the system. Also, a few builds back we introduced the ability to tap the “Been Here” button. This works exactly like a check-in minus the 15 points. You can do that from anywhere. Lastly, to suggest a new Fotospot, tap your profile tab, then tap the gear in the upper right. This gear takes you to your account where you can do all kinds of things including suggesting a new spot. Hope that helps! The Fotospot Team
