Reviews From google play store

Works beautifully on my Moto X4! And I'm seriously loving this app! Got a few of friends to check it out too. I hope they add more artefacts from India tho! The Gandharan Buddha sculpture was really good. And the info on it was also good. Overall I'm just so in love with this app ♥️♥️

Starts up but doesn't work. I can see a mummy but that is it. Uses background nicely and the quality is very high but the interactions are non existent. To get to any menus I have to keep tapping until finally showing, then I can't do anything. Couldn't get past the intro because nothing worked

The limits of ARCore can clearly be seen here. It's such a shame that Google isn't able to provide an AR framework that works. But the content of the app is high quality, smooth and nice UI. Already prepared to increase the number of elements over time. Looking forward to it.

Works perfectly on my S7 Edge. Have explored a mummy case on my kitchen floor and a statue of Mars on my dining room table, fully rendered with shadows. Excellent! Looking forward to seeing more.

Doesn't want to work on my s9+. Just shows the artefacts on a black background. Very dissapointing

Excellent start of how AR will change or world, how we learn, see, buy, measure, develop, interface..... Very good start by BBC. Google should complement this will their data

It's not working on my mobile please tell me any one how can i get this app correctly

A photography app must show details. Its a good effort better than all those available. We are expecting more from bbc

Excellent work. Amount of detail is very good. More artifact please. Works smooth on my nokia 6.1 plus

Wouldn't work on my 3 month old phone.

Doesnt work on my S7... nothing happens

unfortunately doesn't work on my oppo

Nice app wowww real old world history

Awesome feeling to have humankind's majestic artifacts in one's livingroom!

Very informing, smooth graphics, no glitches

Majical! BBC you are No1. Using a Galaxy S10.

not support mi note 5 pro.why?

Fascinating and very clever

I love this app. Nice and easy to use. Thanks.

Amazing! Thanks BBC!
