Helpful, but..

I used this when I went to the museum. Very good and accurate about your location, but there were a few turns that sent us on the wrong direction, meaning we sort of went in a circle, but we did finally make it.

App is a joke

The AMNH Explorer app is a joke. The location service within the museum does not work correctly. In addition, the information that the app has regarding the key exhibits in the museum is so basic & limited (1 or 2 small paragraphs) that you are left wondering why they even bother to promote the app. If looks & feels like the museum just wanted to say they have an app. It provides little to no educational value!!??

OK, but missing some basics

Would be nice to have a search function and the latest exhibits
