Brilliant way to virtually travel

This app really does give you a new way to travel (virtually) to anywhere on Earth, and it's fun to use. You can tell it's been made with care, and I appreciate the attention to detail that's in there, particularly with opacity and transitions. Fifth star for adding a slideshow mode with adjustable advance time, and the ability to load more than 25 per site... I'd love to run this as a slideshow on one monitor while I'm working on another.

Nice ui, but search results not so good

Browsing by map is nice, but when you search you still get a lot of irrelevant content. No way to change view to get bigger thumbnails or sort results.

Does not respect the Win8 design guidelines at all

The developers and designers of this app completely ignored the Win8 design guidelines when building this app. Sad to see.

Very compelling application

Lets you see pictures in an area on a map, and then to be able to quickly open the picture. Similar to the pictures in Bing or Google maps, but much better implemented. It would be nice if the thumbnails could be made bigger and I'd like to get rid of the bar on the left side.

Great

Search is limited but I think this is mostly from photos tags rather than the app. Could use an option to change the size of the thumbnails. Map zooms in when you click to view a photo. You must zoom back to your original view after exiting the photo. On my desktop, zooming is slow on response. Zooming often continues and you have to stop it by catching the map and moving it a little. User tags are often wrong and this is NOT the fault of the program.

First rate

This is the level of polish one needs in a first rate app store. Looks great, very responsive. If I'm picky, there is more skeuomorphism than one expects in a proper Windows 8 store app, and it isn't usable if you need high contrast mode. That is pretty picky of me though.

Worth your time. Good conversation piece.

Played with it for maybe 5 minutes. Simple. No problems loading at all. You just pick a spot, any spot, in the world and start looking at geotagged photos. Amateur and professional. Amazing use of tech. Just imagine what CIA must use.
