Image and video components are the best part of the app. Unfortunately the AR doesn't work at all on my Google Pixel 2 XL (Android 8; close to the reference platform for this stuff!), instructions are unclear ("Scan the flat surface"; *what* flat surface?!), and there are errors (extra words, typos, etc.) in video and image captions.

unresponsive black screen during any vr, although if you're here for information on the moon landings, it's a great resource to spark interest and fascination. hopefully this'll be fixed, but temper your expectations and you'll enjoy it.
