The first impression and configure

«The cult-tourist” immediately took the bull by the horns and offers right to travel, that is, open guides for different countries, of which a great variety here. All States, I will not enumerate, as to get acquainted with the full list can be on the same Google Play.

As for the interface, then it is implemented fairly well, there is the major characters and titles, which is useful for navigation when traveling, for example, in the city. There were also a sidebar on the left, where the main menu disappears.

Here you can select the country of destination, that is, return to main screen. For me so this button is superfluous, since it is not clear why the user forwards the round-trip. Although, it is a matter of habit – to click on the screen to the left or to use this key.

key “map” – opens the map of the world, which can be scaled and used for visual navigation. Immediately, I note that this case does not work without the Internet. There is also a GPS-navigation, but about how it works, let’s talk a bit later.

Without the” Favorites “such a program at all useless, and it is there. At the same time there are several categories, such as “landmarks” and “food”. The latter involves the entry in the “Favorites” of restaurants, cafes and other things.

not without options, of which there is not so and more. For example, you can enable the download only Wi-Fi, clear the application cache, delete the data base of purchases and loaded maps. By the way, “Shopping” suggests a list of purchased goods to the cities and countries that have “bought sneakers in Vienna, Salzburg and pants.”

In general, at first sight before us not so fancy English-speaking guide with a map and a few quasi-useful features. Now look at him closer.


Since now there is a promotion of leisure in Russia, her card and I’ll get it. The reliability of European maps for obvious reasons I can not check.

Travel Guide is divided into two categories – regions and cities. At the bottom of the screen can be purchased offline guide, that is, to rid yourself of the constant reference to the Internet. For it will have to pay from 15.00 to 899.00 rubles, but not easier to turn to the same “Yandex”? Now we with you and check it out.

At first glance, the list of cities is impressive. Here you can find the most remote locations, for example, I found my current position in a place with the built-in GPS-navigator.

However, accurate map can not be called as the village in which I now dwell in the Altai is, if you believe the” Cult of tourists “do not exist. Yandex, with its cards in this much more accurate, because it shows not only the houses and streets, and landmarks.

Anyway, backwoods yet few people are interested. But the city that I know, and highlands (which also happens), which attracts gliders from around the world (Barnaul and the Republic of Tuva). Where are they?

With regard to the foreign countries and the most famous Russian places, everything is normal. Available to read historical information, learn about famous people and no less famous places, and ask about the local cuisine. All of this is displayed on the map, as, indeed, and routes, such as transport.

You can download a map, but the map as a guide for himself will have to pay, if necessary.

The load on the system

Now the load on the system, you can not call a phenomenally high – 167 MB of RAM at 0.2% on the processor (view maps, navigation, map loading). Battery consumption is also pleased – 0.2% for the half an hour of active use.

However, do not forget that GPS and mobile network – a single line capacity consumption, although you and without me know it well (silent, silent, silent). Pro traffic is also silent, as it all depends on you.

With the permission also okay. The application is compatible with Android 4.1 or higher, is absolutely free of advertising, and the system weighs just under 7.2 15.38 MB megabyte distribution.

Before we really “Cult-tourist”, which offers travel on the already trodden paths (and mostly in Western countries). Check the accuracy of all the hard data, but I personally doubt that the database is updated regularly. In general, the program is not suitable for adventure tourism, and that’s how things are, for example, in Angola, is unknown, and go check that you do not want.

With regard to the load on the system, everything is smooth. Immediately evident that the developers have honed their offspring. The only pity is that the hope for this application is impossible.
