  • Lame app / useless

    I downloaded this app thinking it was going to be useful to guide me through the magnificent Louvre, as it advertised "be your own guide". Nope, it did not work. It was useless and did little to nothing helping me locate artworks. For a museum the size and importance of the Louvre, you would think they had a better application. Please work with a bigger developer like Apple or Google to enhance your app as I'm sure many people could benefit from it. Biggest enhancement needed: please work on the 3D map of the museum, it is absolutely useless. If you are half way through your searched artwork destination and there is no internet, good luck that's as far as you got. Don't bother with this app, you're better off going back to 1990 and following the paper map. The mapping is so weird when it tried to guide you to your search.

    I too will be seeking a refund. I bought all the audio guides and there is no way to sort them or find them by where you are, you just have to scroll endlessly to try to match up the thumbnail photo with the Art you’re standing in front of.

    Very unhappy w this app. Could not connect during our visit to the Louvre. Waste of money.
  • Poorly designed

    The App is very poorly designed. Doesn’t really tell you how to get to where you need to go to see a piece of art. Even the items in the catalog aren’t sequentially arranged so as to make them easy to find and listen to the description on them. Once however you miraculously locate a work you’re interested in, the description is pretty good. Needs some serious work!
  • Almost useless

    Terribly designed app. No way to search for narration by number, poor location tracking and if you leave the app the narration stops. Used the app at the Palace of Versailles and was blown away by how intuitive it is. Narration can be paused, skipped and loaded all without leaving the lock screen. The Louvre app gets none of the things correct and crashed more than once.
  • Good but is missing some key features.

    So I went to Versailles before the Louvre and downloaded the Versailles App. I felt like an adept tourist at Versailles skipping the long audio line. And the guide was very good IMO. So I got the Louvre app with a good gut feeling. Here is my feedback on the experience. Pro - Great content. Probably exactly the same as the Nintendo guide you can buy at the Louvre. - uses GPS. I think the Nintendo guide might also have GPS? as I saw people walking around with maps. - Cheaper if you don’t want all content. I just wanted to see the paintings and skip everything else. They had just the paintings bundle for 2 €. Not bad... don’t know how much guides are at Louvre but I expect a lot more. - content goes home with you. Not the you are going to listen to it once you leave... but you could. It’s yours forever instead of just renting the content. Cons - Audio turns off when you turn the screen off to your phone. Versailles app didn’t do this. This means your screen needs to be on and app open. Wastes a lot of power. - Can’t rewind audio. If you miss something you have to listen to the whole audio again. REALLY?! - The paintings bundle didn’t include all paintings!!! It missed the highlight paintings and s lot of the letter French paintings. Really?! I would’ve rather just payed for all content if I had known. For me, between the 5 € app of all content and the official audio guide I think it is a toss up. I’d probably still get the app over the Nintendo. I just like using my own phone and headphone and having the content when I leave. Pretty annoyed about rewind and that some paintings were left out though.

    The idea is wonderful, but the app is not clear.
  • This app makes no sense

    I downloaded the masterpiece audio tour and it directs me to other locations not included in the audio tour. My girlfriend purchased the full audio tour and it was so large unable to download while at the Louvre
  • Don’t buy this if you’re at the Louvre

    This app might be worth it if you download it in advance, but if you buy it while on the Louvre Wi-Fi or using data while in the Louvre, there’s a good chance you won’t be able to download it. My download never got past 1% in the museum, and I had to go ahead and get one of the museum issued audio tours anyways.
  • Do not buy this audio guide

    I downloaded the app and purchased the comprehensive guide in advanced, while my husband rented the Nintendo guide at the Louvre. I was really disappointed when we would go to different exhibits and I would put the audio guide number in and it would say “invalid” while it worked for my husband. I check again to make sure that I downloaded the full audio guide, which I did. Confused I went to information to see if they would assist me, but the gentlemen said he didn’t know anything about the app. I asked if there was some one there who was familiar and he said no. I went to the audio guide desk to see if someone could help me, and the woman there stated that it’s not the “official” Louvre app. I told her I downloaded it from the Louvre website. She couldn’t/wouldn’t help me. I went to another audio desk and the gentlemen said he wasn’t sure either. Needless to say this was a waste. Do not download this app. Buy the Nintendo audio guide at the museum.
