SpyGlass review

As shown in the review the SpyGlass app provides its users with hints to many targets – from the typical touristic places as well as factual knowledge about the surrounding natural environment.

As a user the app provides you with time saving knowledge and makes it easier to explore and navigate in new and unfamiliar surroundings. The tags and marks in the landscape are provided by the app and benefit the user but also the creators of the app who ensure the tagged locations a commercial benefit.  It may be compared with Google: choosing the best places, locations and directions. Instead of asking the community and interacting with others in order to get the necessary information you are guided by the lens but also by numerous commercial interests.
