Could not get one tour to load on this app
I downloaded the tours for Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The map is in Hebrew. Can’t it be transliterated into English?
Got lured into buying city for 4.99 that I could have easily figured out in my own. And even if I had, it was a significantly being “tour”. Palm Springs has beautiful homes and architecture and I could drive myself around and see them. Also, one home on this tour was part of the art museum that would have cost $200 to see. You couldn’t even drive up to it. Waste of money.
If your device has internet access, the app will attempt to access its server when it launches. This is ok, except for when the server is down. In that case the app is frozen, trying to reach the server. This is bad for an app that is supposed to run WiFi independent. A workaround is to put your device in airplane mode before launching the app, that will get you access to your stored city maps.
So many things that could be better with this app. For example why not spend the time to research each place rather than give a truncated version of Wikipedia entry. Also the map feature does not work properly. I really hate it. Not worth it
The navigation turns on and off randomly. Some of the information is outdated. The phone keeps turning off while using the app and needs to be turned on again, causing me to lose my place on the tour. Some of the tours just show you some pictures and don’t tell you anything about the site. Sometimes the dot and fan that indicate where I am starts spinning around. The fan is too sensitive to body movement while walking and causes the navigation to change instructions over and over again. I wasted a morning of my vacation getting frustrated and not learning much. Also wasted my money on the app. The app is a great idea. It just doesn’t work very well.
I had high hopes for this app, but it completely disappointed me. I bought the subscription hoping to use it in London, Scotland and Ireland as it appeared to have a lot “content” for those cities. As I got this just before I left, I didn’t get a chance to fully review it. As I started using the app, it became obvious that the content was mostly for Wikipedia, announced by a robot voice! The gps navigation is a joke also. I was expecting something along the line of gypsy guides that let you walk around and talk when you reach a location. There is nothing more to gain by subscribing. Just use some of the other apps or Wikipedia. What a sham!
This is the perfect app for independent travelers. We have stumbled all over Europe trying to piece together routes to what we wanted to see, & so often ended up exhausted & having missed something we walked a block away from. No more! GPSMyCity is unobtrusive, informative, & a real pleasure to use. We are leaving in a few minutes for a ‘custom walk’ we created in the App last night, to see more of the marvelous city of Prague. The app now knows our hotel location, everything we’d like to see, & has made us a route to follow. It’s the best!!
I have been using GPS My City for several years during my travels. I always check there once I've picked my destinations. We have saved a lot of money designing own city tours. Definitely geared to our needs! If I had only one travel app, this would be it! I'm very happy to have seen continued improvement over the years. A big upgrade was being able to fully download for international travel In the days of little or $$$ fees. The apps are now awesome! Full versions definitely rock! Way to go!!
It’s great that you can design your own walking tours on each city. Totally custom the way you want. I really like it
