It's fun, it's light, it's easy and it will make you smile.It is a large app because all 30 videos are included inside the app, which means you will download the app once and have the content with you at all times - so there is no need to reuse your data to stream the videos each time you want to watch them. Be patient with the download. We, as a team, made the decision to include the videos completely even though it means a larger file must be downloaded and stored on your device. You will want to watch the videos more than once so instead of streaming them and using your data plan each time you watch, we opted for a single use of data plans. Check your space on your device before you download, you will need 1.54 Gigabytes available. It's worth the download, so if you don't have room to install The Heart of London app delete some of those apps that you are not using anymore. Remember that you can re-download apps once you have purchased them without paying for them again. Be sure you have iOS 8 or above on your device.Enjoy,Deb :)
