Inspiring Idea!

I downloaded the app after reading about it in Apple’s featured section. I haven't been to the hospital but I just wanted to chip in and say this is an excellent idea and one I wish my local hospital had thought of too! A hospital is a place shrouded in mystery and that can be really scary for anyone! Glad this app is here to combat that stigma :)

No sound

The sound doesn’t work on the videos and the whole app is a bit glitchy. I’m all for the idea but it’s a very poor execution.

It’s a shame that it popped up as a highlighted app and that it isn’t better.
