Taking so long to load on my Sony Xperia now that I can't check out what's in app, but from memory barely adequate. Apparently a poor reflection of what’s provided for iPhone. No decent map, let alone interactive. Search doesnt work for collection, only (apparently) what's for sale. QR code on my ticket only works for iPhone! Poor effort.
Helpful, but not kept current; limited This app has some nice features, but two major flaws. First, it is not updated for the current location of many works. E.g., the app still has all 19th-20th c. art in rooms 300-350. But they're now in another building. Also, some featured artworks are not where the app says they are. Second, the 100 rooms of the General Staff Building are not covered. Note that only 50 artworks are described in the app. If you want more, you have to pay.
No audio guide. Requires money for extra modules... Downloaded the app while at the museum only to realise that it has no audio guide functionality. Simply provides information and it's suuuuper slow even on a really fast phone. It seems audio guide is only for iPhones (wtf? The app of the state museum?) Also, you can buy some "modules" for money, but who cares? It should be included in the price of admission.
This is the kind of app you'd buy on occasion and would use for maybe three or four hours. It must be super-intuitive and bug-less. You should be able to start using it within seconds after you have it installed. It ought to be completely hassle free (because visiting such a huge museum is a hassle by itself) This app is something quite the opposite. It is buggy (why the heck it keeps telling me it have loaded "internal pages"? who gives a crap?) It fails to load modules I've bought (and once it has failed it will fail again). It is completely un-intuitive. Oh, and it's sluggish like hell. Shame on authors. They have screwed it in so many ways it looks unbelievable. They must hire a UX/UI expert immediately and re-work this piece of crap.
Great idea and helped us choose what to visit, but due to having outdated locations (the staff said the modern art was moved to a new building two years ago) made us waste an hour and a half trying to get to the incorrect locations.
Map hasn't been updated since 2014, all the 19th and 20th century stuff is now across the square at the General Staff Building. Could do a lot more like gps position you on the map. Also the audioguide is only for iPhone and you have to pay for it with in-app purchase. Took about ten minutes to load on my superfast phone, I gave up thinking that it had crashed!
Critical bugs were fixed (including halls navigation).
