It’s a really good app glitches a bit That’s fine Because it’s only a bit
It keeps asking me to open the internet, and when i give in and tap on one of the icons, it redirects me to a blank screen. I deleted the app as soon as I downloaded it. This app should be called Google Annoyance and Despair. Now i think i am unrelated to any famous art, and i am worthless. Fix this now, please!!! 😢
I really enjoy the visual crossword puzzle but do the picture ever change? I’m getting bored doing the same one all the time.
Seriously. How do you move around in this thing without losing your mind? Spending so much time to get through only to have to start all over to return to where you just were.. Navigation really kills this apps utility.
This is a hit or miss. Sometimes there is a back button at the top left corner to return to the previous page. Sometimes not. I can’t tell you the amount of times I had to turn to the main page of this app to re-search the location I was just in. For example; explore by places. Click on a location from the list. Now try to go back. Yep no back button so you have to go back to Home again, click Places, sort by alphabetical...again and scroll ..again. Cmon this is 2021 Some galleries also don’t allow you to zoom in on the artwork. This is especially stupid if the artwork is what looks like to be the size of my iPhone....on my 12.9’ iPad Pro. I did not buy this giant iPad to view small pictures that don’t allow me to zoom in.
Please add dark mode. White irritates the eyes and is distracting when looking at artworks.
No back buttons. Horrible responsiveness on iPad. Frequently trapped in an image with no way to back out. Frustrating.
...without having been launched in several years. In no reality would this app need to scan your network. Zero legitimate reason for this. I hope Apple is paying attention.
Although this app is super cool and I like the concept of it, it causes my phone to over heat, I was on the app for less than ten minutes and battery is drained. Such a cool app but needs some fixing :(
