    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.

    While the commentaries I listened to were quite good, it’s incredibly frustrating that you have to keep the app open and not lock your phone while listening. Also, it kept saying I was one 1er when I was on 2er. I understand how that might be hard to differentiate, but perhaps allowing to choose what floor you’re on would be helpful. Also, the directions didn’t work. It would lead me into a wall, literally. Sometimes it simply wouldn’t give me an option for directions. Definitely download the commentaries at a place with strong wi-fi. I stood right by the wi-fi sign and it still took 10 minutes. (And I just did the short one)!

    Plus side: you get a whirlwind tour of what the Louvre has to offer. Negatives: the locator does not easily locate. I thought I'd be able to plot a course for my visit, no such luck. I'd also like descriptions and background details of the featured pieces.
  • Waste of time and money

    Way too confusing for a tourist
  • 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?
