Deputy Docent is your personal tour guide when visiting SJG. It' s an audio tour with transcript, photos, map and Garden events schedule. Search for "Deputy Docent" on the iTunes Store, or go to www.deputydocent.com and follow the link to download the iPhone app.
Tip: Pre-load the app ahead of time: there is no free WIFI at the Garden, so the app has to rely on cell phone signals. By default, Deputy Docent caches any downloaded data for 7 days, so if you start the app at home where there is a fast WIFI connection, and click on the various Stations on the Audio Tour map, the app will load the audio recordings as well as the images and transcripts on to your iPhone and save them for 7 days.
Coming soon: a longer post on this subject and the app's inventor, Kenn Fung...
