Ratings and Reviews
It worked for me
I downloaded the app in its entirety on a good WiFi connection at the hotel. That’s a must - don’t use their free WiFi to download. Even though it wasn’t easily navigated, the app was superior to my wife’s rental Nintendo (louvre 5 euros) because of picture quality with my retina iPhone and ability to use wireless earbuds. Traveling is like being a backpacker and the more wires and weight I can avoid is preferred. I had a poor ability to find my location with the map but putting in the “picture number” was easy and on another review, they referred to invalid numbers: my wife has essentially the same invalid numbers on her rental Nintendo.
As of Nov 2018, some iconic paintings were somewhere else (Word to the wise). Also, the Louvre is difficult to navigate independent of your tools. The Musée d Orsay was a delightful and refreshing change in comparison. So, some frustration with the Louvre experience appears to overflow into these reviews but a tech savvy planner can use this inexpensive tool for satisfactory results superior to rental options.
To state the obvious, I may consider a personal/private tour for my next visit, but would do it again with this app.
Do not buy!!!
Will be contacting Apple to get my money back but - heads up- do not buy this!!!! This is billed as an equal to the audio guide available at the museum. I downloaded the files at home before my visit. At the museum I turned off everything- cell, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. Still This app had my newish iPhone running nuclear temps even while incommunicado- I’d been in the museum 20 minutes and my phone went from 100% charge to 80. By the way there is a “charging station “ on the printed museum map, and in live signs- it’s not operational. So I rationed what I could listen to and was able to listen to 10 descriptions (these are average two minute audio files) before my phone went completely dead. This app is broken and you would do better to buy the audio guide in person (there was no line on a Monday in September if that helps). I not only missed out on info but it was a huge travel inconvenience as I had destination and translation info on my phone. Unacceptable.
Do not buy this audio guide
I downloaded the app and purchased the comprehensive guide in advanced, while my husband rented the Nintendo guide at the Louvre. I was really disappointed when we would go to different exhibits and I would put the audio guide number in and it would say “invalid” while it worked for my husband. I check again to make sure that I downloaded the full audio guide, which I did. Confused I went to information to see if they would assist me, but the gentlemen said he didn’t know anything about the app. I asked if there was some one there who was familiar and he said no. I went to the audio guide desk to see if someone could help me, and the woman there stated that it’s not the “official” Louvre app. I told her I downloaded it from the Louvre website. She couldn’t/wouldn’t help me. I went to another audio desk and the gentlemen said he wasn’t sure either. Needless to say this was a waste. Do not download this app. Buy the Nintendo audio guide at the museum.
