Why we love it:

Big thanks to Sandy B. who shared this app with me on our recent AMA Waterways cruise in Europe. Will you share some of your app suggestions with us too? Leave us your favourite app in the comments below so we can add it to the list.
Which version did you use? Free or paid version? If both, can you tell me the advantages of the paid version?
I’ve been using the free version and am happy with it. I think paid would offer you access to more recommendations and the ability to save more destinations/lists.
