Doesn't work I downloaded in advance of our DC trip, but on the morning of our museum day it wouldn't open without an update. I tried to update about 20 times and uninstalling and reinstalling and restarting my phone in between but the app always stopped before it was done and would tell me again to update. When I tried again it would start from zero. The most it ever updated was about 45% before reverting back to the "do you want to update" screen. So, the app we were counting on is unusable :(

Worked great Worked perfect during our visits to the Air & Space and Natural Science museums. Nice for seeing scheduled events. Indoor maps don't zoom and don't show current position in the building, which Google Maps did.

Doesn't work The app says it needs to update with current events, then downloads the update and says it needs to update with current events again.
