The information it does have is good, though rather out of date. I used it at Yorkshire sculpture park and many sculptures were no longer present. It asks for location and has a map, but does not show your location on the map. Often forgets its place and goes back to the start screen and I have to re-select the sculpture park, click through to get to the menu, wait for it to load everything up again. The map is slow, jerky, and never stays where you left it.

I used it in MoMA. Very slow and buggy. Keeps going back to the main screen for venue selection, and it takes forever to load the page I need. The map sometimes shows everything, sometimes only select spots of interest. Very confusing, I'd expect way better in a major museum.

barely functional made for a frustrating museum experience. app was unresponsive to screen touches and wouldn't consistently load content. Saw one patron leave in frustration. another gave up and used the Frick website, as i did in the end.
