  • Needs improvements

    Every time I try to use it, I have to download the same map again. Wish it had a section to only see new posts. Does not see to be updated often
  • Not a typical city guide

    By AppConsumer
    I really love this guide. But I guess it wants to be used slightly differently than regular city guides. This app has a handpicked selection of locations that are recommended by locals. It will never recommend as many restaurants or sights as e.g. TripAdvisor. I usually wander around a city and then I’m looking what Spotted by locals recommends in the surroundings. It made me discover many small gems in cities such as Athens, Amsterdam and Prague. The recommended places are almost always authentic and either not (that) known to tourists or else also loved and frequented by locals.
  • Waste of money

    Don’t buy this app. It provided very little insight to anything!!! Just a small handful of places. Waste of time and money..

    Total waste of money for florence.
  • GOOD but the review service was weird

    By Ashv123
    The app is awesome and helped me find a lot of cool stuff around Munich, however it then tried to get me to write a review. Every time I opened the app to use it, it redirected me to the App Store to write a review, making the app itself useless. I could not even look at the map before it redirected me.
  • Not enough

    By gsspirit
    It is a good idea but that is it. I found it not useful at all in Paris and other places were not even available like Nice. Just keep using the free apps like TripAdvisor they are more useful.
  • Battery Drained in 3 hours

    By FaireyMaire
    Phone battery drained in a matter of 3 hours upon downloading this app, from 100% to 10%. I turned off location settings per another review. Not helpful when touring a foreign city to have your phone die. I removed the app immediately. Unless the creators can prevent battery life diminishing in 3 hours I won't be able to use this app while on holiday.
