Not working

This app is not working. I installed app, but there is only one image and nothing more.

Developer Response ,

Dear Ana,

thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear you had problems with the installation. We will look into that. Once downloaded via internet, the app should contain more than 200 stories and 600 images you can view on/-offline. Perhaps you try reinstalling the app? I this case you need to remove the first installation and then install the app again. Should you experience any further problems, contact us on app@visitberlin.de

Best regards from Berlin,
The VisitBerlin team
