    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.

    Will be contacting Apple to get my money back but - heads up- do not buy this!!!! This is billed as an equal to the audio guide available at the museum. I downloaded the files at home before my visit. At the museum I turned off everything- cell, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. Still This app had my newish iPhone running nuclear temps even while incommunicado- I’d been in the museum 20 minutes and my phone went from 100% charge to 80. By the way there is a “charging station “ on the printed museum map, and in live signs- it’s not operational. So I rationed what I could listen to and was able to listen to 10 descriptions (these are average two minute audio files) before my phone went completely dead. This app is broken and you would do better to buy the audio guide in person (there was no line on a Monday in September if that helps). I not only missed out on info but it was a huge travel inconvenience as I had destination and translation info on my phone. Unacceptable.
  • 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.

    I bought this app while in le Louvre, after massive battery draining, the app was loaded, and could never successfully down load the audio guide. It begins to down load, then resets before it em gets down loaded. And it is not as if the app can pick up whereby leaves off. IT RESTARTS every time! So we were NEVER able to use this app in the louvre, or even in Paris, or anywhere in France for that matter... it would not even load, so we could listen to it on the plane as we flew home! I’m disappointed and feel it was money very poorly spent. I would like a refund of some kind. We were not reliant on WIFI, I had a SIM card and had data. Very disappointed!
  • 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.
