Leode was at some. Locate the internet connection so badly. that we couldn't go on. The app does not allow you to query the next destination! We also lack the possibility of being able to retrieve information again when you have solved a berwita puzzle. Even at the end you can't read! Too bad. The ode is good, it's entertaining at the beginning but gets a bit wakeful as time goes on (also from the puzzles!).

Nice walk through Frankfurt with little puzzles and some information about the city, the buildings and the history. Great alternative to guided city tours!

Was a lot of fun. You can pass almost all interesting places. The questions are sometimes tricky but can be solved with a hint at the latest.
