Smithsonian Mobile is a virtual guide to the Smithsonian, the popular Washington DC museum, especialized in the: "increase and diffusion of knowledge". This application lets users know about all the exhibitions and collections available. The app also allows them to access tours and podcasts and navigate the museum as if they were there.
It's the perfect tool for planning you next visit to the Smithsonian: the app's usability is great and every section is easily accessible from the top left menu.
The design is not perfect, and the app could benefit from a looking a bit more professional. However, it serves its purpose and people interested in the museum will find it useful.
