Convenient app

But the sound doesn’t work on the videos

Could not find the audio tour once I was in the park (if it was that weird virtual reality tour guide that you need to point your camera at to hear then no thank you). Anything I added to the calendar disappeared. Couldn’t favorite anything for easy access. Was really laggy, even when connected to the zoo’s WiFi.

Overall, I’m pretty disappointed I put so much effort into trying to make this work while I was in the park. It promises a lot and looks nice, but is not very user friendly once you get into a lot of the features.
