Using your device’s gyroscope, choose from one of many locations in the ancient city and enjoy a 360-degree view of Jerusalem and the surrounding hillsides. You can also explore the Temple Mount in a ground-level walkthrough helping you visualize the significant events in the life of Jesus and his apostles that occurred there.

Great start

Great job so far. Was trying to find the entrance to the city for Palm Sunday but currently the city views are restricted to specific locations. There is a bug in the temple tour where the sun appears black and sunlight elements show black all over the environment (the sun works fine in the city). No explanation about the Holiest Place (is that a rock? Where's the ark?). Looking forward to more detail, search terms to find places to explore (index of scripture references and locations), zoom into garden tomb/garden geth./calvary). Super excited about Ancient Rome/Greece and other places.

The culmination of a lot of hard work

This app is great! You can tell a lot of care has been put into all the detail of the layouts. I especially liked the option to view according to touch screen or the virtual reality gyro function. It made me feel like I was transported there!

One thing to fix: when I was in gyro mode of a view, then tapped the eye icon to switch to a different vantage point, the gyro function stopped working and the viewpoint would not move. I would have to switch from touch back to gyro to get it to work again.

Great work guys

I'm alumni and worked at the CID or CTL for a couple years as a student. This is great work guys. You should be very proud of your work. A suggestion... perhaps have one of the faculty do a guided tour and just have them speak freely and give more details. But great job. I look forward to really exploring this app since I've never been to the Holy Land and will probably never go.
