Ratings and Reviews
This is a mere snapshot of the exhibition, but what a treat it is. Thoughtfully and elegantly laid out, easy to use, with video pushed as requested (minimizing initial download size). Really a model of how to do this kind of app. The only shortcoming is a paucity of critical writing; why not offer the catalogue text here too? If a museum goes to the trouble of producing an app, it's a pity to stint on context.
Wish it worked...
Purchased the book for the exhibit and love it. I got the app but it doesn't load on an iOS 6 iPad2. I just get a white loading screen and nothing happens. Hope this gets resolved, I'd really like to see the content!
