App Reviews

  • Great App but can’t search by city!

    By sblinstein
    Awesome app but you have to scroll through a giant list to find cities, how could there not be a basic search?!
  • Excellent resource!

    Truth be told, I first started using this app because it had really good maps which you could use offline (no roaming charges) as a navigational tool. As I used the maps to get around I got to know the content as well and stumbled into some great spots, particularly in Amsterdam. I’d definitely use it again, and not just for the maps!
  • App keeps crashing

    Before I can even see the load screen this app crashes. My iPhone 8 is up to date and so is the app. Please fix! Update: the developer suggest I uninstall and reinstall and all was fine. This was the first time I’ve ever had a problem so I changed back my review because I do truly love the app and have found some really cool places by using it.
  • Not willing to pay

    They should give you a day or two free. I’m not going to buy data that I can get on yelp.
  • South Seattle Doesn’t Exist

    3
    By Call Me Ted
    Imagine my disappointment, $3.99 for an App that reviews less than half of Seattle. If it’s South of I-90, there’s virtually no reviews. Undoubtedly the Northern half is the easy pickings for reviewers, but what about the rest of the city? There’s all sorts of great & quirky places around Seatac, Georgetown and Black Diamond, to name a few. Nearby small towns like Enumclaw-a mini Telluride- go completely ignored. It’s lazy reporting, and it’s dishonest to charge for an App that is only focused on one small part of the city. There’s a lot more to Seattle than what’s in Spotted By.
  • Really

    Really. You have to pay for each app for each place. That’s not local.
  • Not for me

    There’s not many suggestions on here for restaurants. All the shops and activities you can get for free on a search. Feel like I wasted 12 dollars on an app I have no use for

    Worst app I’ve ever downloaded
  • *UPDATED* annoyed

    I wrote a review about a month ago about this app and how it didn’t work while I was on vacation. Their response team sent me back an email with a handful of excuses how it was my fault because I downloaded it wrong and asked if I would remove my review. I asked for a refund and he told me the only way I could get a refund was if I had PayPal. I received a total of SIX EMAILS from this guy asking me to remove my review. Not once did he take ownership for the app not working or gave me any other resolution other than to re-download it again (pay for it) and hope it works on my next vacation. He continually blamed me for downloading it incorrectly. By the last email this morning, it felt like harassment and I am so annoyed with this guy I could scream. Don’t download this app unless you are fully confident in your skills to DOWNLOAD AN APP or have the extreme patience and extra time to deal write emails back and forth for over a month about a $4 product and a bad review.
  • Best App for Local Favorites

    5
    By Rico's mom
    If you want to find a spot that is an off-the-beaten-path locals’ favorite OR, is a spot in your guide book, but described and recommended by a local, this should be your go-to App. And, if you like to travel to cities that are not visited (yet) by a lot of tourists, this App will also inspire you to discover those lesser-known spots!
