Good job dev team 👏

I like this app! The scanner works, I get to save my favorite paintings and artists… many paintings come with a blurb, even shows where they’re on display, plus the app looks good :)

The search function did take me a few tries to figure out. Say I look up Monet, then Fragonard, the app would search for Fragonard in Monet works 😅

Audio re-routed away from AirPods at each station

Used at Taliesin West - headphones are required for the audio tour, but the app would switch the audio from AirPods to speaker when it switched “tracks” at every station. Maybe the app tried to force set set wired headphones even though we were using airpods?? Happened 16 times on both my iPhone 12 and my wife’s SE v2 - we each have AirPods Pro (v1).
Report a problem in the App Store also does not work -app cannot be selected from recent purchases, so the ‘next’ prompt never goes active.

Didn’t scan my tattoo nor give story behind why I got it

Imagine if this app could be used to scan everything you happen to see on any given day? Check the list of locations the app is currently available in so as to avoid making yourself look like a moron lol.. great app I was impressing my gf until she caught me using it lol

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your great feedback! Scanning tattoos is a good idea too 😉
