  • 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

    Waiting for 2 hours. Hoped to take this tour but we will be out of PS by the time this loads. Want money back!
  • Better as a coffee table book?

    By Greylow
    This is a very informative app about P.S. Architecture, but it should be said that very little of the houses can actually be seen from the street. I found it most useful for providing a guide to finding and exploring some of the nicer neighborhoods. Made for a pleasant though slightly disappointing afternoon.
  • Purchase before traveling

    By dano26
    Yes this program does download but it takes a very long time, perhaps hours depending on the download speed. Once downloaded it is an excellent introduction to the topic, even if the program is a little buggy. Functionality is good, but it would have been nice to be able to go from thumbnail pictures or map location icons directly to the detailed descriptions of the properties. We did not use this as a real time tour guide. With some planning ahead, patience and fast network internet access this might be possible.
  • Great self-guided app!

    By anam3_nyc
    Giant download, but worthwhile for self-guided Architectural tour. Maps are buggy, but otherwise a recommended purchase for PS visitors interested in modernism.
  • 4.99 for nothing

    Will not load!!
  • No Illuminated Mid-Century Tour

    By Been there since rock started
    Bought this to do illuminated mid-century modern tour at night based on promo material. Not only is there no special illuminated tour as advertised but many of the buildings on the tour are inexplicably not reviewed on the app. That makes no sense. The reviews of the buildings that are covered are pretty good but how they can leave out so many key buildings on Palm Canyon Dr. is crazy.
