Barnes foundation Unfortunately too little of collection chosen for audio presentation. Most of Pieces chosen were not particularly all that interesting . Need to restrict phone app to Barnes only. It was too easy to accidentally escape to other apps. A few changes would make this app very good
So so This is a fine app if you are planning a trip to the collection and don't know much about art and art history. However if you are not going to be standing in front of the paintings anytime soon, it leaves much to be desired. The commentary is rather elementary but my biggest complaint is that you are not able to zoom into the pieces to get a better look.
An excellent intro This "tour" is very helpful before, during and after your visit to the Barnes. I learned about it a little too late to use it while there, but it's still good for review. I didn't see mention of the app on their website. Maybe i missed it.
A few big problems The app should not pause audio if the screen turns off or rotates. It should also hold your place I can different audio files.
Two bugs Bug #1: the app stops when the phone display blanks. This means you must increase the display timeout to more than # minutes in order for the phone's natural functioning to not interfere with the audio. The app is unpleasant to use because of this. Frankly the Barnes Foundation should not have signed off on the developer's bill with a usability bug everyone encounters within the first audio segment uncorrected. 2: the <more info> buttons don't work. Fix these and you have a good app.
Low quality, hasn't been updated in 2.5 years... Doesn't contain information on much of the art, archaic, difficult to navigate. Only audio information, no textual information for those who don't want to wear headphones in the Barnes. Shame on the Barnes.
