Good Idea Bad Execution

This app is pretty difficult to use. The location points are not very accurate and the map doesn’t move well with the haptics on my iPhone. No zoom in or out. The reference point for where I’m standing is incorrect. Downloading the content takes time if I just see the projections while walking around and want to check it out. Not usable on its own. I keep having to go back and forth in a decent navigation app. Audio doesn’t play. Tapping on the (?) leads to just caption options, not actual help suggestions. The idea of a walking tour app is great, and the curated content is interesting, but the navigation needs a lot of work.

Brilliant idea, needs work

We were super excited about to do this and it’s a really fun idea! However, I can’t get the sound to work at all and it’s hard to tell what’s going on without it. It’s also challenging to navigate since it doesn’t give you directions or the address of the next spot.

Way too much work

Love the idea but the app needs work. Isnt there someone in this tech savvy town willing to make it work for the normal tourist?
