** About Open House London App **
Open House London has teamed up with Near Pixel to bring you the first Open House London App. It allows you to easily browse the buildings and events that's happening on the Open House Weekend (21st Sept, 22nd Sept).
Open House London is a simple but powerful concept: hundreds of great buildings of all types and periods opened up their doors to all, completely for FREE. It is a truly city-wide celebration of the buildings, places and neighbourhoods where we live, work and play, and a quarter of a million people take the opportunity to get out and get under the skin of London's amazing architecture.
The dates for 2013 are 21 & 22 September.
What's New in Version 0.6
- Bug fixes.
Not only did the app keep crashing on Saturday but it fails to answer the two fundamental questions I need it to:
1. I want to visit property x - how do I get there from the nearest station or bus stop? (Maps don't show any public transport)
2. After I visit property x, what nearby properties are easily accessible on foot or by public transport? (The map for property x doesn't show other nearby properties)
To be honest, a simple solution to these problems would be to print a map in the guidebook, as Open Garden Squares does. This would remove our total reliance on the app (and probably stop it getting overloaded and crashing). I love technology, but there are times when the traditional offline methods are superior! The OGS maps are excellent and improve the experience of planning visits greatly by putting all the info you need in one easily accessible place.
Open House app is great at last with brilliant filters and nearby me option, please disregard the previous review as the favourites most definitely do work and is a great improvement on previous years. This app is an invaluable tool for anyone participating in Open House and I recommend all to purchase it, as well as being a great way to donate to a very worthwhile charity
Waste of time...waste of money
The website for the open house event directs you to download this app and after paying this amount you would expect something pretty spectacular wouldn't you?! But no. This app doesn't work. Not a snifter of information to be had. And the information from the developers...a message about too many people using it! Well...that's really unexpected isn't it?! On an event that includes the whole capital?!!! I would like my money back please. A total rip off buyers beware, someone somewhere is making money out of this and they really shouldn't be.
