Completely useless, total waste of money

First of all, as of my trip in March 2017, the Herculaneum has audio guides to rent for 7 Euro that are excellent. Ignore whatever travel advice you've read online & just use those.
This app is 100% unusable. The amount of information that it gives for each location is minimal & is largely dry facts about size or excavation dates. The clips, which were read by a computer voice, lasted less than 30 seconds. The app was unable to locate where I was physically, so in areas where there were multiple points of interest, I had no way to know which to select to play. When I tried to zoom in on the map, to figure out specifically which building I was in, the map automatically snapped back out to the large area view. I tried guessing which site I was near & pressing play but it never ended up being the right info for the right building. In the end, I gave up out of frustration & my husband told me bits of info from his audio guide that he'd rented from the site, which was informative & interesting.
This app is completely useless & a waste of money & patience & if I could demand a refund for this defective product I absolutely would, but leaving this honest review will have to do.

Terrible, worse than useless

This app added NO value to our recent visit to Herculaneum. It uses a computer voice reading standard descriptive text. It's map numbers did NOT match the site map numbers, so it was useless to help move around the site. I stopped using it to avoid having the app cause a negative reaction to the site.
