Great for a freebie but could be improved.
Used the app on a recent visit to the stones and whilst the content was great it was quite irritating that the audio didn’t continue when swapping back and forward from the camera app - an action that I imagine will be a fairly commonplace one given how many people use their phones as their main camera these days. Also, pressing the play/pause button on the Apple earbuds didn’t play/pause the audio, rather it started playing music from the phone’s library instead.
Other than these little gripes it’s pretty good, the audio production is of a high quality and the information contained most comprehensive. Fix the multi-tasking and it’ll be a very good app indeed.
Good audio guide but poor functionality
The audio guide is good, interesting intro to the site (although slightly out of date reference to works being completed in 2014!). The app design is poor - audio only plays when the app is active and open on your screen, and stops if the screen locks or if you toggle to another app. This massively drains battery life!
Excellent audio guide
As typical teenagers, our 14 and 16 year old kids were not enthused at the prospect of what they expected to be a boring history lesson as we looked at the stones! However, they were won over by the really engaging content on this app - excellent background and explanations which answered critical questions in a straightforward and interesting way. We all loved it and it made our visit a meaningful and enjoyable one.
