What's New in Version 1.2.1
• Fixed "Explore" mode bug with iOS 7.1 update
I went to Hearst castle last weekend because a friend of mine told me about this app. I wasnt sure it's worth the drive but after using this app to see pictures and the stories, i am sold! 3 hour drive later, i am still able to use this app to explore around. Other museums and parks, i am looking at you now to have this kind of app available!
Informative and useful
Well designed app and informative. Download before you go up the hill as the connection is rather slow up there.
Great tool for exploring!!
Totally worth the download. This app gave in-depth information about Hearst Castle that made our visit so much more satisfying. Also super easy to use! If you are visiting the Ranch, its a must have!
