About The Park.
"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.

I was excited to see that National Park Service had an app for visitors to Liberty and Ellis Islands. Unfortunately, I never got beyond the opening screen as the app kept crashing and causing me to reboot my iPhone. Please fix this!
Might work, but not for most people
So the developers chose for some reason to not include the offline content you need to use the app on the island (bad/no cell data connectivity). When you open it, it asks if you want to download the content, but if you don't do that until you're on the island, you're screwed. And who is going to do that, really?? It can't be that much data, and it's not like they pay for it, that's Apple's problem. Dumb design, though I'm sure there's some reason they did it. Maybe trying to cut down data usage at the ticket area, where a lot of people probably download the app (like me)? Anyway, it didn't crash on me like others said, but it was next to useless. Anyway, the free audio tour on the island is much better.
Not very helpful
I downloaded the app and downloaded the info as suggested prior to my visit. Once there, I saw that it is not really a guide, rather just some maps, which you don’t need.
The audio tour is free and very good. Just pick one up at each island.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
