Couldn’t Even Start The App

I downloaded this app with high hopes that it would be an enriching AR experience. Sadly, those hopes did not come true in the slightest, and I was disappointed.

One of the first screens you were brought to was a screen that said “Point your device at the floor. Please move around slowly and make sure area is well lit.”

I made sure my area had exceptional lighting, no nearby objects, and my connection was perfectly running. However, after a long time just trying to tilt and move my screen slowly, I still simply couldn’t get off the screen.

This is one of the most exciting and educational ideas for an app I have ever heard, however, technicalities such as the one I faced still need to be sorted out.

I am willing to give the app a second try, if I receive specific instructions on how to get to work.

Thank you for coming up with such a wonderful idea, however!

Doesn’t work

The app opens to the welcome screen, then the instructions, but after that it just shuts down. Have tried closing it and reopening, keeps doing the same thing. Seemed like it would be pretty amazing, if it worked.

Experience Scotland

A fun and educational app that is a great showcase for some of Scotland’s best attractions. Informative, interactive, and a unique way of showcasing useful information about Scotland. As a Scot living abroad, it made me a little homesick. Well done! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
