Looks great at first
But when I go to use the “what’s on today” page it glitches and quits the app, every single time. That’s the only reason I got this app. I would think a charity organisation that prides itself on its conservation work would allow for a fully usable guide on what’s going on, as opposed to this broken app which forces visitors to get paper guides, which isn’t fantastic for the environment.
One massive problem
This app promises an interactive experience. Though it looks good it is not as interactive as one might hope. It is more of a mobile guide book.
But there is one massive problem with it. Mobile reception is so poor at the zoo I could rarely connect to use it.
Even if it worked, would still be very poor
Of course, everyone else is right. The app crashes all the time.
But even if it didn’t, it would be very poor. I liked the idea of a series of guided tours. But the map is terrible, with no real way to see where things are, and there are only two guides - rain (which it’s not today) and short, which only takes in about 5 things.
The best thing I found on the map and the website combined is a link to a pdf map which is good. (That’s on the website, by the way.)
Shocking that they thought this good enough to release.
