Thanks Wow, nice to see times moving forward and to have a way into the State Library while on the train or bus. Much better reading than the unmentioned magazine that you are presented with at the stations don't you think? Thanks to the developers. Hope it becomes even more interactive and resourceful....

Not a finished product Location aware? I don't see those objects in this room and it doesn't show me where I am in the library. You have to go to the menu for a map, and it doesn't show you where you are on it. It doesn’t show objects on the map, it makes you guess where they are (have they been archived already?) Is this a work in progress or another example of over-promising and under-delivering?
