Everything locked

Concept is cool, however literally everything is unavailable, at which point they try to shake you down for 4.99/month, and app only allows a measly 3 days trial which is beyond impossible to cancel before they bill you .

Great photo spots

Even though I’ve lived in New York for years, I found a lot of new incredible place to shoot photos from using the app. Hope they launch more countries soon.

This app has been super useful for me. I’ve found so many amazing spots around my own city that I had no idea existed! It’s really pushed me to get out and explore more. There are a lot of extra details and photography tips, and I like that you can look up and shop the gear used directly from the app. A great app for the casual tourist and pro photographer alike. Can’t wait for them to expand to more locations!

The opposite of Leave No Trace

Sadly this app is slowly selling out the specialness of many areas. As crowds increase at these geo-tagged spots , so does the percentage of people who don’t care about preserving the areas. The argument is that “everyone deserves to see these spots.” Well, I guess in the handout generation no one has any adventure left in them. Next time you go to your special spot that you cherish and have respected for years, you can thank apps like this for the trashed trails, piles of litter, huge crowds, and copycat images from the same perspective. Glad someone is cashing in on selling out.

Good idea but will lead to overcrowding

I like the idea that there are some iconic places you want to see/visit for yourself and this app will aid in that. But I have to say many popular sites in nature are now being overrun with people who want to “do it for the gram”. They care about social media likes and not the damage in the massive influx of people and the damage they can do. I.e. Joshua tree Park, the superbloom, places like horseshoe bend, and the list goes on. Sadly this app just unknowingly encourages people who practice irresponsible tourism. Not everything needs to be on social media people! I’m not saying don’t travel, but ask yourself if you’re doing so responsibly.

Images don’t load on home screen

If the homescreen doesnt load images why would anyone spend time on this app.

very well designed and curated, the app is a big help to find great photo spots. its a breath of fresh air from other crowdsourced apps out there.

Has very real potential to be an essential tool to the average photographer. They should really build a vast base with free/ad paid full access and put themselves on everybody’s phone before charging subscription fees. They may have priced themselves out of rapid expansion by making so few features available at the free level. I’m doing a cross country photography trip soon and this would be ideal if more locations were available to explore but it lacks the base right now. Also I’d add the photographer’s name to the cover photos also so that people can more easily explore and find photographers they like. Overall use is probably 2 stars right now but I have it 3 because of the potential to be so great

No point in using the app if I have to pay 4.99 to find the direct location of places.
By Saraisredeemedxoxo

Some potential but just not worth it.

I like the concept and the app seems decent, but $4.99 a month for four locations? I guess expect more at that price.
