  • Not worth it

    There is no information about the works of art in the app, and it doesn’t tell you exactly what room to find them in, just the floor and wing. My map location did not work either (it kept placing me outside the museum on the banks of the Seine) so I could not use that to find what I wanted to see.
  • Skip this app and just get audio guide

    The app doesn’t have info for the majority of the exhibits which defeats the purpose. The search method is ok, but it would be better to use the numbers provided on the exhibits, like the ones you get at the Louvre. If I had to do it again I would have just did the audio guide that you can rent at the Louvre- more info and more exhibits offered. The map function is so-so. It didn’t show where I was, and wouldn’t allow me to search other floors. Most frustrating was the fact that the audio was a pain to pause, if I wanted to discuss something with my wife. Also, navigating away from the app (to google something interesting for example)caused the audio to stop and then restart from the beginning when I went back to it. Overall it’s good in theory but needs a lot of work.

    The UI/UX requires a lot of work to make it more intuitive and easier to find and explore works while walking around.

    Guys I’m serious; I should have listened to all the negative reviews, this app does not work. It is TERRIBLE. I tried numerous times to download the $4.99 audio guide AND the .99 selections audio guide; I had a high speed connection and full WiFi and it still kept timing out - never downloaded - poor WiFi is not the issue,it is the App itself that does not work. DO NOT BUY THIS APP. Save your money spend €5 on the audio guide at the louvre or better yet take a guided tour. This ruined my visit here.

    WiFi is on and off, and when you lose connection you have to start downloading from the start. It’s so frustrating!

    I purchased the full Louvre guide and tried to load it many times. My phone has tons of room but it kept giving error messages that it couldn’t download. I tried from different Wifi places, including the Louvre. I also couldn’t load the map. How do I get a refund?

    After reading the reviews, I figured if I downloaded before getting to the Louvre I'd be fine. At the same price as the audio guide, I seemed a good buy. Well, first thing I wanted to see were the Dutch masters and they have so little info about them on this audio,I was thinking it didn't work. I saw all the other folks listening to their museum rented audio guides quite enviously while being highly disgusted with this one. Not until I got to the romans & renaissance hall did it start giving me any decent info. Cons: the informational number sequence on artwork doesn't match with this (I got lots of "invalid number"),has a very frustrating non-alphabetical list of paintings, the gps locator not very accurate in telling you were you are in relation to the artwork you're trying to find. Pro: I get to keep it and listen to it at my leisure. Great idea, mediocre delivery.
  • Crashes constantly

    While the audio, maps, directions and supplemental pictures are a great idea, the app crashes every ten minutes or so when you are actively using it.
  • Worthless

    I wanted to use my phone as a substitute for the clunky headphones you can rent. This is worthless. It took 40 minutes to finally download the guide I wanted and now I have yet to see a painting that actually is listed. None so far have a four digit code needed to get a description. As someone else said, it’s kind of ruining the whole experience.
