Ratings and Reviews
Does not work at all. Tried it like a million times and it did not work at all!!!!!!!!!
Waste of time & resources - avoid
Tried it at an art exhibition, where a sample of works had been tagged as Layar items. This kicks in a scanner which usually identifies the artwork, and then after a LONG time a lame little talking head video plays ( on good WiFi connection). Distracting AF in the serene setting of an art museum. Plus people shoving, grunting, thrusting phones to get a scan, and the yak yak yak from the videos. This app is a crappy idea, poorly implemented.
