Problems at Sutro Media

SutroSadly, Sutro Media, which handles the tech part of San Diego Essential Guide, is having major difficulties.

Because of a bug in its system, recent updates have not been activated on the app. We apologize for the inconvenience.

A company spokesman says he is confident things will not stagnate much longer. In the meantime, please note that restaurant Amaya La Jolla and the Gaslamp nightclub Stingaree have closed.

We’ll keep you updated here on Sutro’s efforts to get its apps back on track. In the meantime,  until the product is once again up to date and something we can be proud of, we’ve asked Sutro to take San Diego Essential Guide off the market.

“GREAT APP FOR LOCALS – This app takes the thinking out of getting the best from your city, locals!  I love it because it shows me new and exciting spots that I would have never known this great city had.

“BEST INVESTMENT IN YEARS! I live in San Diego and bought this app because my granddaughter is coming to visit and I thought I’d look up the promised ‘kid friendly’ places. Found them and much more. The Sea World listing included a link to a coupon that repays the cost of the app – 18 times over! It’s the best return on investment I’ve had in years! Thank you.” – Grateful Grandad
