Perfect guide (helped a lot!) Used it on my first visit to Pompeii today. Chose the 4 hour tour, which took me 6 hours to complete. Probably because I really took the time to process everything and some of the roads were blocked which forced me to try and look for alternative ways to get access to some of the highlights. About 3 the of the marked spots appeared to be inaccessible. Feedback: It would be nice if the audio kept playing when viewing the photos, if I could skip to certain parts of the audio and if the text auto scrolled.
OK - But! It's alright for the price. I'll not get to Pompeii so it's a fairly good guide. But the Guide function doesn't work on my download; so I'll probably have to uninstall and reinstall. But it's a big file so I'll leave it till later!
Waste of time Tried the app instead of a tour guide. Even with location on, it was hard to find where we were or should be.Gives detailed info about sites but if you can't tell which is which, it's pointless. Also app closes when you want to take a photo. Made for a bad start to our trip, so we reverted to a good old paper map and found things much easier! This app almost spoiled our day at pompeii, avoid at all costs!
Useful infos, no offline map Since it uses google maps layer, it needed data to show the map, and it didn't warn me that i won't see it. It was quite useless. The infos about the ruins and the audio is good though
Good app, if you use it right If I was doing this again, I would study the various buildings and sites before and decide where I wanted to go. Then I would use the map mode to pull everything up as I went through the ruins, letting it read to me as I was on the way. This is what I ended up doing in the end. Note that, as others have said, parts will be closed and you won't be able to get to them, so you need to be flexible. The Thermopolis is in the wrong place, I think, unless there are two of them. That was the only error I saw.
Great Tour Guide Really good descriptions of all major sites. Best part is GPS location tracking on the Pompeii map which means you never get lost going around the many streets.
