Ratings and Reviews

Audio clips experience is terrible

Nontakenusername

The app allows downloading audio clips as a companion to exhibitions, which is great in theory. However, the clips will stop playing if you leave the app or if the phone is locked (on purpose or by it going to sleep). Very annoying experience

No background audio your play. Large update required after initial app download

App was quick to download since it was small. But having to download another 45mb update after installing and opening the app makes no sense.

Audio tours also can't be played in the app background. Meaning if your phone goes to sleep or you switch to another app, the audio stops playing. It's great that audio tours are available via app. But not being able to play the audio with the screen off (draining even more of your battery) or having to constantly unlock your phone to resume the audio is terrible. Might as well go back to handing out cassette audio tours...

Please make this iPad native!
