Free to download but not to use. You can download it for free but you have to pay to use any of it. Its very inexpensive but misleading and since I don't see a way of previewing any content after being mislead I am uninstalling.

Good info A very handy app to have when exploring the various museums. Only complaint is that the app takes a long time to load up, and seems to crash unexpectedly.

Appallingly slow 12MB?? A waste of time and taxpayer dollars. Echoing above, we stumbled on the Slippers before the app fully opened. Don't bother downloading.

Slooooow & buggy! - S3 Downloaded yesterday & I have not been successful with getting further than a few screens before it crashes. Getting to other screens took entirely too long & any additional information would ask you to purchase the full app for .99¢. Give it to me straight & I will buy it, but do not offer free then require the buy the content to make the app functional. Nothing seemed to be free other than downloading a slow malfunctioning app. Gave it two stars because I like the idea but it needs many improvements.
