Cheap & useful This is a great audio tour for the museum - better than most museum audio guides. Instead of just talking about individual works it also talked about why a room of art was together. Also had a suggested sequence, which worked well. I have a much better understanding of Spanish modern art than i would have otherwise.
Useless The app idea is really good, the content seems interresting, but there is no pictures of the painting discussed, instead we are presented with the photo of the painter. So it was impossible to understand what the discussion is about. I got fed up and wished I took the audio guide from the museum. With just this small finetuning the app would be amazing.
Great idea, niggles in execution Great idea and use of technology. Using a device most people are already carrying to deliver audio commentary rather than hiring a separate physical device widens the base of users, reduces cost and price, and allows richer AV content to be provided. One star removed for some niggles: commentary cut off sometimes a few seconds before the end, a few listings were not up to date with current hanging. Also, coverage was quite sparse for floor 4, and non - existent for the most recent works in the new building
Great idea, lousy execution. My wife and I struggled with this app in the museum trying to find any connection to what we were seeing to what we could hear. The overviews and content itself are high quality and we could find good stuff on guernica and cubism. But trying to find a particular artist and their works was near impossible. What this app needs is a alphabetized listing of artists with each of their pieces classified underneath. Or perhaps let me search on artists name, not just by artists picture You have a real opportunity here and could easily sell packs of apps for people visiting a city. Instead you're left tricking people like me.
The idea of having this app is grate, but Unfortunatelly when i went to the museum i found that the descriptions of the room was not updated with the current exposition. It's also very difficult to navigate. I would suggest to have the possibility of switching between english and spanish without have to get back to the settings menu every time
