Disappointing

:
Just got back from Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice) and felt obligated to leave a review for others considering it. I'll leave the same review for Florence and Venice since the app's interface is identical, though the content obviously varies.

I really wanted to like this app, but found it terribly lacking in the interface design, mostly. I used it on an iPhone 3GS "offline" with location services turned on, but no cellular data plan enabled (to avoid the ridiculous $$ charges). Wi-Fi in Italy is expensive compared to the States so I didn't use it in that context. Here's a brief summary:

PROS:
• Restaurant reviews are solid / lots of great finds off the beaten path.
• Ability to save your "favourites" was handy (but no ability to annotate the fave).
• Content from the book (like historical background and travel tips) was personal, brief, and easy to read. Very comprehensive, as well.
• Map is mostly accurate, but could use an update (for Florence and Venice, especially). One of the islands by Venice was said to be "nearly abandoned"; instead it was an Italian Nantucket!

CONS:
• Map seemed decent until you had to use it. Horribly difficult just tapping on pre-selected points of interest. Pinch and zoom helped (sometimes).
• No ability to drop your own pins on the map. Would have been great for my own hotel or places I wanted to find again.
• The map "flag" for an individual location would appear in strange places away from the actual geographical location.
• Map filters (places to eat, shopping, point of interest, etc.) are a great idea, but often disappeared from the app and forced you to restart it
• All of the pre-selected sights had detailed info (phone & address) but NO photos linked to them. Sometimes you want to know what to look for.

Based on the last "con", I'd say invest in the much cheaper Rome 2Go app. It's based on Wikipedia, but it has a lot more info about the places you're seeing (including photos) and allows you to bookmark the sights. I didn't use the map on that app but it seemed decent.
