  • 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.
  • Cool app but has some drawbacks

    By Brett Adamson
    I really do like using this app to find good non-touristy spots when I'm traveling. The one thing I wish was that you could access the cities without having to update everyday. They won't update on service, only wifi. And I'm often not using service abroad anyways. When I can't access the map out & about even though I updated it yesterday, it makes the app pointless :/
  • Best tool for exploring cities

    By Rayraybass
    For every city I visit I download it's spotted by map before and start investigating where I want to go before I even land- then you have your own personalized map ready to go. On your trip, if you find yourself in a certain neighborhood craving, say, a hidden gem of a bar, you can use the map to find one that you would otherwise not find on your own. Best city travel tool hands down
  • Great reference tool while traveling!

    By RickyDeeMoose
    I found this app extremely useful on our trip to Vilnius, Lithuania! It helped us find places closely, and the reviews were fun to read and very handy when it came to choosing where to go. I especially loved the Offline function, as WiFi is not always handy - although WAY easier to find in Vilnius, than in our city in Germany for example. But having an offline reference was priceless. Real photos, by real people, and if there was one function I would like to see in future updates, it would be a Search box on the Maps component. We’ll be going to Paris soon, and I will definitely use Spotted by Locals as much there as I did in Vilnius!
  • Great app

  • Pretty average

    By Phatheka
    I didn't find the information useful
  • Great for local tips!

    By DearOphelia
    I'm the type of traveler who loves to explore the way locals live, and this app gives great advice from people who actually live in the cities they talk about. Great eats and hidden gems to explore! Tons of info you won't find in magazines

    I don’t usually review apps. In fact, I rarely review anything but I have to say that I am very passionate about Spotted by Locals and what they are doing. Amazing app, works well even offline which is essential if you don’t have data! Beyond that, each blogger is very dedicated to give you really authentic places to go to that go far beyond the touristy hot spots. A must have for the avid traveler or local!
  • Excellent Local Tips

    By City Person
    I just used the Milan guide to find an awesome happy hour, cool park, and great design shop. The descriptions include useful tips that only locals know. I would use this app for any of the cities they cover.
  • Local suggestions to help you discover local.

    By sups86
    TripAdvisor may be a good platform for reviews, but they're not the best at content curation. Spotted by Locals has helped me discover my own city in a unique manner. There have been times when I'm looking for a suggestion from a person who has lived in a city and that's when I turn to the spotted by Locals city guides. If you're looking to avoid touristy spots check some of their recommendations.
