Needs some logic!
As I am currently sat in the National Portrait Gallery I found myself downloading his app. Seemed good value as the map for the gallery is £1. However this app needs more interactivity and perhaps a map that shows the location of the main portraits. At the moment you need to look at the tour for the kings and Queens, then flip to writers when you reach that room, then flip back to see if there is anything to see in the next room and so on! Suggestions.. Top 10 or 20 must see shown on a map in order... click on the portrait to get information. Finally if you download this app at the gallery you really need headphones! Consider adding text to the sections rather than all audio....
It was great to be able to download the app after my recent visit to discuss the pieces I'd seen both at the pub with my friends and with my relatives.
Has certainly encouraged them to pay another visit soon.
The extra audio and video real adds to the experience with a wealth of further information you dont necessarily pick up when visiting
I love this app
I work around the corner from the NPG and this is the perfect app to guide me through the gallery on my lunch break. It's informative and easy to follow.
And there is a green button to press for more information, for those that wonder.
