Lots of issues lots of potential

Not easy to use/purchase guide books no free previews and no way to view the area in question and lastly not way to sort states, again I love the ones once you access them but very difficult to use

Pretty crappy. Bought it for the Pennsylvania guide. As far as I can tell, it's all taken directly from the guidebook "secrets of the keystone state " which was also an awful guidebook. In the app, few Walter dam bouldering has its own download and it is also the area showcased in two other separate downloads. I don't know what to say... I rarely do reviews, but this was such a let down.

Great app. Tons of beta! The guidebooks are really detailed. I can't wait for The Gunk's to be added.
