All Sweetness & Life, the award winning individual dating blog takes a look at the new Crumbs City Trails app. In their blog entitled: Crumbs – The Awesome New City Guide App (That Makes a Brilliant Date Idea!) Katy starts by explaining how she has fallen in love with this innovative new app. The alternative city guide allows you to be a tourist in your own city by putting a fresh spin on London sightseeing.
Touching on the creation of the brand Crumbs City Trails reveals how it has been 20 years in the making. Dubbed an urban explorer, Hansel Oppidan has brought his 20th Century book of London Treasure Trails into the 21st Century to form a part Treasure Hunt, part Walking Tour and part Trivia Quiz app!
So how does it actually work? There is no guidebook to follow but rather “Crumbs” – multiple choice questions based on clues or local trivia. Alongside these Crumbs there are “Gems” to find, only five per trail provide a way of increasing your overall score if you can spot them that is. Based on London Tube stations there are currently 30 Trails in central London already on the app with more being added regularly, aiming to cover the entirety of Zone 1 by the end of 2016.
