Description: In Cologne 3D, explore the historic Old Market in the old town and Gottfried-Hagen-Str. in Cologne-Kalk (the office of the developer!) and get an idea of what it looks like there today. You can also see 3D views of the past of some houses. There is also the option to play an audio about some houses and the Jan von Werth fountain on the Old Market. Two types of advertising pillars can also be placed on the Old Market. The version is a kind of technical demo to show what is possible and should be expanded in the future if possible.

Review: As with anything that is free it is kind of hard to hate this app even if it’s utter crap. With super low-quality 3D models of Cologne and the smallest amount of educational information, this app really is kind of pointless and you can see all it has to offer in less than a single minute (and that is with listening to the narrator’s voice!) However, if used in an educational setting maybe there will be some use for it. But apart from that very situation I really can’t see the point in anyone downloading this because you would be far better off looking on Google Street maps!
