Getting to Know the Mission

:
The Mission District in San Francisco is a wildly vibrant and diverse neighborhood with a fascinating history, but most guidebooks, written by corporate drones have little personal knowledge and even less appreciation for their subject. Missionlocal's new app provides unique, practical and fascinating information about the district, written by people who live and work here. I've lived in the Mission for over thirty years and learned stuff I never knew. The Mission is a great place to walk around and this app is a great guide to have as a companion .

5/5 stars

Doing justice to history

:
Excellent journey into San Francisco's Mission multilayered past. Helps us see a familiar place in new ways. Sharp writing, great images, useful links. Good for residents, tourists, day trippers, and anybody wanting to connect past and present.

5/5 stars

Having Eyes to See

:
I have visited numerous times the Mission district, even with friends that understand it's cultural wealth and history. This thoroughly researched and carefully prepared guide has amazed me: I feel now endowed with eyes to see what it really means. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is ready to see this historical and vibrant place in full dimension.
