Ratings and Reviews
Used this app on a vacation!
Recently, my family went on a trip to London. We were all very intrigued by the blue plaques of London and were constantly looking out for them. I searched the internet for an interactive map but I couldn’t find any. So, I searched the App Store and came across this app! I was easily able to find plaques near me and see a helpful map of London. I would recommend this app for anyone who is looking for plaques or wants to go on a gun scavenger hunt.
