Ratings and Reviews
Good Idea Bad Execution
This app is pretty difficult to use. The location points are not very accurate and the map doesn’t move well with the haptics on my iPhone. No zoom in or out. The reference point for where I’m standing is incorrect. Downloading the content takes time if I just see the projections while walking around and want to check it out. Not usable on its own. I keep having to go back and forth in a decent navigation app. Audio doesn’t play. Tapping on the (?) leads to just caption options, not actual help suggestions. The idea of a walking tour app is great, and the curated content is interesting, but the navigation needs a lot of work.
Incredible city app-- especially at night
You MUST at least do one of the 30 minute night circuits if you're in town. The projections on the walls of buildings look fantastic.
Do this with an iPad if you can. The extra large screen improves the experience, and you'll need the battery life.
Daytime circuit is less visually amazing but still a fun way to spend an afternoon learning about Montreal.
A few minor ways this app could be improved:
1) Say which direction to face. We did the first stop of the northern (red) 30 minute day circuit facing the wrong direction, so the picture wasn't as cool.
2) Make the starting address easy to copy & paste into a maps application to get directions to the starting place.
3) The app isn't stable in the background, so if you stop for a coffee you have to reload and click though to get back to where you left off.
Over thought, poorly rendered
This is a hot mess. It's slow, confusing, and nags you with warnings and confirmation pop ups every time you touch the screen. I can just hear the inane and unending discussions of the self-absorbed development team who worked on it. They thought they were delivering a polished gem but it's obvious that they put zero effort into real-world usability.
