how does loquiz work

In short the process is following.

You create your questions and games in web-browser. All the data is saved in cloud server.
When playing, the game is downloaded to tablets through mobile network (alternatively wifi can be used). Everything except photos and videos are downloaded at the start of the event so even if player looses connection game continues. Mobile devices calculate the location using GPS. Game progress is sent back to the server and the results can be viewed online.
