Needs AirPod Controls
The app works fine though control with EarPods/AirPods is missing. In the app, the play and pause buttons should be combined into one toggle. The functions also need to be tied to the in-ear device controls. If I switch to the camera or other functions, audio controls are not accessible until the app is reopened. This is not optimal.
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.
Wonderful, educational app.
This classy app allows me to preview the mansions and choose. Because so much history is included with each mansion tour, viewing and listening in advance makes the actual tour a much richer experience.
This app is easy to use, and the audio-video part is of excellent quality.
