  • It could have been so much better!

    I bought this to take a self-guided tour of modernist homes in Palm Springs. The information, photos, and recorded narratives were great. Unfortunately, there are some serious shortcomings that made the app difficult to use for navigation. The driving directions, when used through the app, cause the GPS sound not to work, so it requires a person to navigate in addition to the driver. I set up a Favorites Tour, which seemed like a great idea, but although the app asked for location tracking, it didn’t use that information to put the tour in a sequence that made sense for my current location. As far as apps go, this one was expensive and I expected better performance.
  • Crashes non Stop

    By Jim74ny
    Not only does the app not use your GPS to “guide” you, it crashes constantly when you click on the images. You have to click the images since most of the houses have walls or gates so you cant even see them. Go to youtube and view the houses from your house to see them better.
  • Nice try, but...

    By Kelray88
    So much great information, but poorly executed. Can not zoom into pics, ⭐️’g faves neither makes them present differently on the map nor filters out others on the tour. In other words. - what’s the point of the useless code? Also, truncated paragraphs with no way to expand them. Grrr. All the trappings of a FREE app, not a $5 one. 👎🏽
  • Doesn't work as advertised.

    By $Rosieannie$
    This app doesn't seem to load fully. My phone had 40Gb free but it had only partial descriptions when looking at the home descriptions. It would not pair properly with Bluetooth, so it didn't narrate through the car and caused problems with the GPS on the car. I had to switch between the audio being played on the phone and then stop it to use the GPS. I would have liked to hear the audio on the way to the house, but this didn't work as advertised. One of the house's audio description did play through the Bluetooth but I have no clue as to why that one worked and none of the others did before and after that one. Interesting app but very frustrating. Overpriced for all the technical problems that kept it from working as advertised.

  • I love this app and hope it is upgraded

    By Albany subscriber
    I downloaded this app several years ago and have gotten a great deal of enjoyment from it both during yearly Palm Springs stays and at home. It offers a wealth of information, great photos, maps, and videos. Apple recently sent me a message informing me that it may not be comparable on future operating systems. I hope the developers prepare the app for future upgrades.
  • Hard to navigate

    By Lunalbus
    Once you get to the details, it's very interesting. However, some numbering is off, the map isn't interactive, the map doesn't show your location relative to points of interest, and you have to go through multiple screens from map to details. This has potential.
  • Does Not Work

    By ThePhotoPro
    This app is literally half way done, does not work properly and should have never been released. There is absolutely no way anyone can use it effectively. Crashes non-stop, does not connect with maps app or work as designed. Also many homes featured are on private roads. Don't waste your money.
  • Won't load! Even with fast WIFI

    By Egelby
    Waiting for 2 hours. Hoped to take this tour but we will be out of PS by the time this loads. Want money back!
