Good app for budget travel

My family of 5 adults wanted to make a quick 2 hour stop in Pompeii. We purchased skip the line tickets in October although the main entrance did not have many people. This app was reasonably priced. It works well offline, only off by a little, and I liked the photo references. The suggested path with key landmarks was nice. I give this app 4 stars vs 5 only because I wish there was both a short and long historical commentary/description. I was the only one in our group who paid for this app. So, it was difficult to find the key aspects of the written history on a brief walk through ruins with 5 people and lots of tourists around. We just wanted the high level overview. It would be nice to have summaries of each location and a longer description as an option for those who really enjoy history.

Thanks for your review! I totally understand what you are talking about. This app was made to be as comprehensive as possible, and does contain a lot of information. On a 2 hour visit it can be a bit overwhelming I guess. I will look into your suggestion of a shorter description for the people with very little time. Of course 2 hours is a very short time to visit such a large site, even if you only want to see the highlights. Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback!

Great guide to Pompeii

This is one of the best mobile guides I have used. It provided history, context, plans and photos for sites throughout Pompeii. The information is just the right length to explain each site without being overwhelming. The photo captions (which display when you click on the photo) are really helpful for identifying features like frescos, mosaics, shrines etc. The app includes really time map to navigate through the site.

I recommend downloading before you arrive and familiarizing yourself with the app before you set out on one of the recommended trips. Great app!
