A *major* flaw is that when using the 'map' view to find artworks in the same area, you cannot zoom out. The map is so small that the markers are practically on top of each other and unless your fingertip is the size of a pin, you can't select them. Needs updating because some artworks have moved; and if you touch your screen to keep it from shutting off during the audio, the audio pauses. Generally a pain in the butt to use. Pay for the audio guide instead.
