Ratings and Reviews
Only semi-useful for tram line…
Basically the only thing this was useful for is getting in the virtual tram line, but even then there were no notifications (which I enabled) and we almost missed it. AND twice when I checked to see how long until boarding it told me (after we had waited 45 minutes) that our spot had been cancelled so we panicked and went all the way to the tram area where we were told to just “restart the app” like this happens all the time. Pretty incredible they can put a man on the moon, yet have such a poor app. Nothing else about this app worked the entire time we were there.
App constantly crashes
I can’t even look at the events category for more than 5 seconds. Only not giving it 1 star because I love space.
Amazing way to experience the center
If you’re at Space Center Houston, you NEED to download this app. It’s basically a an awesome audio tour with a built-in GPS map. I love the “what’s nearby” function so I can explore and learn for hours. Plus, I always know where the nearest bathrooms are! The audio stops are great, the stories you hear are entertaining and educational and definitely help me have an even deeper appreciation for the early space explorers. I wish all museums had an app like this!!!
