Ratings and Reviews
I work at the British Museum and have used the app many times to guide visitors around the museum and to give them information about the objects on display. Highly recommend this app
Ok but very poorly written
This app has the potential to be very interesting. Without meaning to sound arrogant or like someone obsessed with 'proper English', this is clearly an app written by someone to whom English is a second language. There is barely a description of an item in the entire app which does not feature some sort of strange phrasing or spelling which would never be used by a native speaker of English. Often all the words are valid but they do not work together as a sentence because tenses are mixed etc. This is the main thing that has put me off buying what could be an excellent app.
A free app that forces you to purchase the full version if you want to do basic functions like use the museum map to ID what is where in the building. This is information that is free to anyone actually standing in the museum so is completely useless. Instead of using this app as an advert for the incredible collection of exhibits and attract additional visitors, the app is here purely to raise money. Avoid it a pick up a free leaflet when you get to the museum. A wasted opportunity.
