Great concept but failed to work
A wonderful concept but completely failed to work while touring the castle. First warning is that it uses a lot of data so recommends connecting to wi-fi. Even after connecting to wi-fi nothing loads. Would be a much better app, if everything was bundled when you installed the app first off. Or at least provided the options.
Great source of info
This app is great. It allows you to see so much more of the story and history of the castle than while touring it alone.
