Ratings and ReviewsSee All
This bare-bones app is indeed buggy, as other reviewers noted, the inventory of pictures is very limited in number, and these are unfortunately in standard (non-hd) resolution. Plus, the in-app purchase function, imo, is a waste of money. For example, as evidenced by the Peacock Clock iap (just a brief video of less than four minutes), is similar to the better clips that can be viewed for free on Y**T*** . Finally, if you read all of the reviews, you may agree that many seem to be fake, lacking any details that might explain why it's *supposedly* such a fantastically wonderful app.
Can't restore purchases under iOS8
As a 2-time visitor to St. Petersburg and the Hermitage, I've loved this app as a way to revisit the mind-boggling, massive display of art, sculpture and history that this museum contains.
Then my employer issued me a new iPad with iOS8. Downloaded the app several times and tried to restore my previous purchases. No dice. Wrote to the the app developers - nothing.
Cool but needs updating
This is a fabulous app for those who want to see the Hermitage but will probably not have opportunity. My issue is the lack of updating. Error messages come up when trying to reach the store or restore purchases. Other than that it's lots of fun!
