Ratings and Reviews
GPS Function worked great for me and kept me pointed in right direction, of course so did free google maps. Disappointed that clicking a place on map didn’t bring up info, graphics are very early 90s, info on very few places. What was there I found informative. $.99 would have been a better price for what you get but was nice to have GPS since street signs don’t match what’s on map.
Great then and now
I did not use the app for GPS / positioning so I can not speak to that functionality. But the app is very helpful in providing a comparison between the current day ruin and the appearance in antiquity. While the number of sites included is somewhat limited (~15), it includes key public and private sites which provides a good overview of what Pompeii would have looked like. I found it worth $3
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review. Pompeii Touch Team.
Not very useful
I attempted to use this app with full cellphone coverage, but was not able to get it to display accurate information on locations inside the walls. Plus items were locked off that the map said you should be able to see. I know that is What the map is for, but it needs to be updated if items have been locked off for months.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
