Beautiful mansions and beautiful app

My wife downloaded it when We were in New York. We saw a bit of it then. When we actually went to Newport, they gave us the same app but in their own phones. Everything is so beautiful. It took us out of this world for 45 minutes. Boy ! How much money is spent here ! The app is nicely done. Musical background made it even better. Voice is great. Story is interesting. We had time for only one mansion. Next time, we will do 3 more.

Excellent - Don’t tour without it

Downloaded this app when I toured the mansion. This was extremely helpful and the app is beautifully set up as you navigate from one part of the mansion to another. Very informative and I liked additional nuggets of info that were optional. Highly recommend. Would’ve not enjoyed the tour nearly as much if I didn’t have this app.

OK if you bring headphones

Nice app if you have headphones. Otherwise, you have a choice of listening on speaker, so everyone around you also hears, or putting the phone to your ear. The problem with the last choice is that the tour screen contains several hyperlinked areas that take you out of the app to a web browser as the surface touches your ear and cheek. As a result, you lose the ability to pause, go back, or advance. Those hyperlinked areas should be hidden when listening to audio.
