Visitors will not see Grand Central with the same eyes after taking the tour…

Fixes for iPhone 5
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.
Worked perfectly. Just double click the number on the map to listen to each tour installment. Fun facts, well organized. The adults and teens in our group all enjoyed it.
