5/5 stars

I'm so happy that I have this app!

:
This is a great app that help us recently, when we were traveling through an area that none of us really knew about out.

Pulled out the iPhone, started the app, and voilá! We had some fun and interesting things from which to choose. Even during the boring drive, one of my relatives just kept playing with the app, and listening to the facts and history of some of the points of interest around us. Even the kids liked it, and to listen to the information

I'd say get this app. It is the FREE / LITE version, and there is a Premium version, but for now, this was a good item to get for free and we have not any complaints.

I am not sure why some of the other reviewers were confused between the Lite and the paid version. This app was FREE for me. Never had to pay for any upgrades. Maybe those people got the wrong app and chose the Premium version?
