Ratings and Reviews

Augmented reality, spot the difference, trivia, treasure hunt


This app does a fine job engaging the user in a way which connects what's in each physical site (located around Rochester New York) to different scavenger hunt type activities within the app. The augmented reality is especially fun if you've never tried it before!
