Angkor iPhone App reviewed

The first review is in on our Angkor App -- we're reproduced it below as it is tricky to link out to the reviews.

For those who like to travel like my family and I, we have all experienced that moment when plans change. (For those with children under 5, this may happen everyday... more than once). For us, we often make plans at the beginning of the day and later find ourselves changing our plans later into the day for a variety of reasons. This leads to pulling out the 'several hundred page' travel guide, fanning the pages to locate our next activity, and then coming to an agreement on what to do or where to eat without necessarily an accurate review or recommendation. We then 'wing it' and sometimes the result is good, and other times... not so much.

This application helped us through those moments so that every change in plans was the perfect change in plans.

It was extremely easy to use and navigate. The amount of restaurants, things to see, places to go were perfect and didn't make us feel overwhelmed and yet not like we were missing anything. The map was the best part of this app. And because we did NOT have to connect to the internet, we were able to change plans while out in small villages or visiting far away temples. And the reviews were accurate... we completely agree with all of your ratings. The 'several hundred page' travel guide never left our room; we did not need the book. This app was all we needed to have the perfect vacation.

Thank you.

One area for improvement, the city walking tour should start at the southern end of the city of Siem Reap and not at Bayon.

Thanks and all the best."
