My favorite travel guide
I didn’t really think I’d find this useful—i figured I’m not generally the LV target market—but many of my favorite experiences in Seoul last year came from recommendations in the app.
Many guides are overwhelming; this one gives a nicely curated list, and a nice range. I found suggestions when I was feeling fancy; or when I wanted something peaceful.
I’m already excited about several of the items in the Tokyo guide, and I’ll be revisiting some of the ones I missed in Seoul.
My only slight critique: items on the walking tours are not on the master list. I’d like to be able to bookmark some of them.
Text left in French and typos
The guides are essential but good. However there is a very weak point: for $8.99 you cannot slack leaving text in French and not running a spellcheck in the content.
In the Rome guide, for example, the Colosseum (Colosseo) is left in French (Colisee) and many other titles. The Barcaccia (means ugly boat in Italian) is misspelled as “Barbaccia” (ugly beard). Your guides should be built with the same standards as your expensive bags.
While trying to be fancy, the app was only able to be very weak. Mostly text, almost without pictures, the app forgets it is on a multimedia device and does something I have not seen even in very old travel books.
Even though I have tons of apps I’ve downloaded but never really use, this one was not worth the space it would take on my 128gb iPad, so I have already deleted it.
