Difficult to Use

GregontheRun

I did appreciate that the information was accessible through multiple points but that also made it difficult to use. Each audio segment was very short and I spent way too much time clicking around to find the next thing.

A more useful option would have been to have one audio file that leads you from one end of Mulberry Road to the other. Not as a tour but to offer additional information to what one is seeing.

Not the worst thing!

You don't expect an app for something like this to be bug-less but it worked pretty well. As far as content goes, they did seem to try to make it seem like being a slave wasn't "that bad" in some parts. But their facts and figures was interesting material.

Thoughtful and Well Designed

I don't understand the negative reviews. The app is superb. It addresses a sensitive topic in a manner that is thorough, complex, yet accessible to the general public. The U.I. is consistent with the highest standards for mobile platforms in terms of its ease of use and smooth navigation. I'm impressed.
