What's New in Version 1.1
Minor bug fixes.
Asian Art Museum- Terra Cotta (Not) App
Nice attempt but really slow and shallow. I expected to get a little more info on the exhibit sculptures and history, especially since I just got tickets to see it. 3-D generated replicas that represent what you already imagine the object to do: ie, bell gongs. Why?? What about the why and who rang it? What was the history behind it? How about an interactive map of the exhibit? Or audio narrative of the relic (or text for that matter?)
For a museum to have such an amazing exhibit that people rarely get to see, I'd hope that in the future, your curators would request apps be more informative and helpful. I can't tell if this was supposed to be for kids or adults as neither audience would be satisfied with the content.
Not informative in any way, and not much in the way of entertainment either. I used the app to entertain an eight-yr-old and a ten-yr-old (who are very hungry for knowledge AND cool technologies) for roughly ten seconds. Considering someone spent actual money to have this app produced for the museum, I am in awe. What an atrocious waste of money, time, and manpower. The app serves one purpose: as an advertisement for a development shop that does one nifty trick. Too bad that one trick is useless without a healthy does of additional content, and other tricks.
We downloaded this for our 6 year old in anticipation of our visit to the museum tomorrow. There was nothing other than telling us the hours for the exhibit that was even remotely helpful. A simple Google search will get you far more information than this app.
