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.
Had high hopes, eventually mostly listened to guides of other groups. Map interface is clunky with limited functionality and it doesn't include all the sites. Map button on main menu works only for the first click and then you have to "go back" or restart to access the map. List of buildings doesn't have the Italian name which is listed on the buildings, and in general it uses a confusing index.
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!
Doesn't work offline, even with the the Google maps downloaded. Also didn't read the phone's location properly, so trying to navigate by using location in relation to map points is worse than nothing. Day improved considerably when switching to the paper map provided at the ticket office
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
