Functionality not so good

The information here is great, but the app’s functionality still has a ways to go. The GPS sometimes works, and sometimes doesn’t. It’s very hard to go back-and-forth between the information and the map. Every time you go back to the map, it zooms all the way out, so you have to fiddle with it to see where you are. On a cold day this made it really difficult to navigate.

Because the GPS triggering didn’t always work, I ended up reading the information more than I listened to it.

App drops audio

The app has a lot of good content and quotes from different people, etc.

- At many sites the audio would stop abruptly at the same spot no matter how many times I tried to play it
- the transitions between stops can be a bit glitchy and hard to follow. You had to manually go back and play different segments

Freedom Trail

I don’t usually write reviews, but considering the negativity, thought it was worthwhile. I didn’t try the audio feature, but the map was brilliant with nice tidbits about each stop. Well worth the $10 as opposed to an overpriced tour guide you can’t hear. And 40 stops compared to 10 or so with a guide. Stop by Night Shift brewing on the way to Bunker Hill! A pleasant place to rehydrate 😀
