It used to be a 5 star but

I'm "stuck" on a certain point on the map of the Route 66 walk. I emailed support about this two weeks ago and got a response about Google Street View, which really has nothing to do with my problem. I've emailed them again and am waiting to see what the answer is this time. When I hear back, I'll change my review to either 5 stars, or 1. It's now in the app creators hands.

For someone who doesn’t have a lot of money to travel, this is perfect. It enables me to see places (virtually) that I otherwise wouldn’t see. The only thing I would like to see improved is adding other modes of travel since I don’t walk a lot so it takes me FOREVER to get through a walk. Other than that i love this app.

Love the idea

I like how you can view trails or other cities. I just wish you could get notifications that you reach the next landmark or know how many steps to add to get to the next landmark.

The hassle of sliding until you get to the landmark is a hassle especially if the app crashes.
