Previous version was awesome. This one stinks

Incantations446's Review of Rick Steves Audio Europe

Reviewed on 12/14/18 8:13 AM

The previous version was very slick, streamlined, and very fast. I could down multiple tracks at once and they were in my playlist within a minute. Once I upgraded I had to redone load my entire playlist because it had deleted it. It took forever to download each track. What used to take seconds now takes several minutes. If I try to download multiple tracks at once then none of them load, they time out and then it leaves a error message. It has taken me 4 days to download what I want and I'm still not done. Give us back the old version. It worked just fine and it was easy to navigate and read.

A Phenomenal FREE guide to Europe

This app is above and beyond. I used this while planning my month long Europe trip. I loved listening to the tips and tricks and found very helpful advice from Rick Steves. But the app is even more useful as you utilize the "city walks" and tours in each of the cities. It even has maps which relate well to reality and you can easily orient yourself to follow along easily. If you love to learn and are new to the historical sites of Europe this is a perfect resource! And it's FREE!? My only complaint... While listening to the audio tour guides I would want to take a picture while listening. As I would try to take a picture, the audio from the app would stop and I would have to reopen the app and replay. This became tedious. I wish the app continued to play the tour in the background as I took a picture so I could continue listening and enjoy the sites simultaneously. But again this app is absolutely worth it.

Great App

These tours are great for when you're actually traveling or when you just want a mental escape to a place far away.

Perfect collection!

Cannot believe Rick and his team took the time to make some already generously free content even MORE organized and accessible. Amazing resource, and a surprisingly simple and usable app. Bravo!

Amazing App

I've used this in Italy, Austria, Germany, and the U.K. The tours are amazing and the best part is they're free.

Easy to use and so informative

My girlfriend and I (27 & 31 years old, respectively) planned a fast trip across major cities in Western Europe: London, Paris, & Rome. All I can say is that when we got one of those 5€ audio guides at any of the sites, it was terrible (with the exception of Villa Borgese in Rome). Instead, we put on Rick Steves and shared a headphone. Entertaining, informative, and concise. We loved it. I want more. Only criticism is that there's no 1.5x speed option. 2x can get a tad fast and 1x seems too slow when you're doing a bunch of these.

Truly amazing

I can't believe this app is free. The audio tours are informative and entertaining, and the app is well built. Grab this before you go abroad, you won't regret it.

Awesome

Everything Rick Steves does is right on target. How to, went to, if then, best times--it's all perfect👍

Great content, but frequently crashed

I love the content of this app :: the podcasts and the interactive walking features. But TWICE this app has crashed when I was using it and all of the downloaded content was lost ... this was especially frustrating when it happened in the Uffizi on my recent trip to Florence. Fortunately I had looked over the info in advance, but it was frustrating to loose this content whilst trying to use it in the museum! I would be more than willing to pay for this app if it would mean that it was more reliable!
