Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
One of the most popular tourist destinations in New York City - Grand Central Terminal - now has an official, self-guided audio tour.
The tour focuses not only on the architectural highlights of the Terminal but provides a real story about little known secrets, anecdotes, archival material and the history of the Terminal, with a capital H.
Visitors will not see Grand Central with the same eyes after taking the tour…
What's New in Version 2.2
Fixes for iPhone 5
App saved us time and money
Downloaded to iPhone 6 as opposed to trying to stream the information and had no problems. Application worked well throughout the terminal. Either the app has been fixed or others tried streaming which may have caused problems.
The app appears to be the same as the $10 audio tour ($7 seniors) as the end emphasized that you should return the handset.
Enjoyed the experience and learned a number of interesting things about the terminal.
Seemed easy to use. At first we were not sure what was meant by going to the green button for additional information, but the back arrow took us to the page showing the green button. Pause worked well allowing us to move from place to place. Seemed well organized for showing the hidden corners we would not have explored.
Useless ! (bordering on Fraud)
Against the advice of the previous reviews, I bought it anyway figuring it couldn't be THAT bad. It isn't. It's WORSE ! Beautiful cover page followed by multiple sections of single, and not very good, still pictures with no audio. NO. NOT A WORD. A bunch of silent pictures. Hit play and the timeline moves flawlessly and SILENTLY forward. You can go to the Grand Central webpage on the app and listen to the 2 minutes teaser audio advertising the app. The teaser is fine but the tour app itself is mute, silent, empty. App says it was updated in January of this year (2013). Updated to what?! You mean it was worse before? Silent, INVISIBLE pictures perhaps? It's almost worth the $5 to marvel at the incompetence. Was this designed by the IRS?
Directions needed! But great tour!
The app works and the tour is very interesting but the directions on how to use the app are not obvious. I had to get the one from the window in GCT and use that. Afterwards I saw how it worked and experimented with the app and realized it worked and everything was there. If you buy it, play with it before you get to GCT so you know how to run it before you get there. It is an interesting tour and I learned things the locals didn't know.
