Essential Portland Is!
As a Portland native recently returned after a 30 year absence, Essential Portland is a fun and convenient tool to reacquaint me with my hometown. The author correctly identify's our city's very best fast food--Burgerville--as well as recommending menu favorites at some "one-of-a-kind" fine dining spots. If your Willamette Bridge trivia is a little rusty (that third grade bridge tour field trip was a long time ago for me!), this app provides a little history refresher on our numerous east-west connections. You'll also find basic information on favorite parks such as Mt. Tabor and much-loved landmarks like the downtown Benson Bubblers. Well done!

Useless app not worth $3.00
Unless you have internet access (not so useful on an ipod touch), there's no map of the city or map of the public transit system. Descriptions of most attractions are not at all detailed. Lacks some of the best brew-pubs in the city. The pictures are nice, but certaintly don't make the application worth $3.00

This app rocks!
It's clear that the person who did this app knows and loves Portland! When my husband and I want something fun to do we just scroll through this and find a "Hidden Gem". We're natives, and this app has the great spots that we've found or been shown by friends... and the "hidden gems" we hadn't. Do you guys do other cities?

Needs to grow its selection
The first, most blatantly lacking category is Wineries/Breweries. Portland boasts several more breweries than the selection you will find here. Bummer. Makes me wonder what else I'm missing. That said, the descriptions are generally well written and Hidden Gems has been pretty awesome.
