Frequently asked questions. And the answers.
What is a Bound?
A Bound is an interactive smartphone rally. With the Actionbound app, you can take part in exciting, fun, and informative bounds. The principle is similar to a classical scavenger hunt or geocaching, but it also includes media files, internet, and player-created content.
How to create a Bound?
Sign up for the Bound creator and start right away in your browser. You'll need no programming skills.
Do I need an established internet connection while playing a Bound?
Nope. The Bound's media content will be preloaded. This applies to all content like quests, text, images, videos and sounds uploaded to Actionbounds' media library.
How does a multiplayer Bound work?
Multiple Bound players use one smartphone together. They will play as a team to reach a good result. The optimal group size would be three to six Bound players, at least two Bound players are required.
Is Actionbound really for free?
Yes, for private use e.g. a birthday party or a bachelor party. The use at events at companies or else are fee-based. We also offer reduced prices for educational purposes. Check our pricing page for more details.
Do I need GPS to play a Bound?
That depends on whether the Bound designer has built a GPS task in the Bound. If you play a Bound with GPS tasks although you do not have a GPS-enabled device, you can simply skip the tasks.
Where are the Actionbound servers located?
The servers rented by us are located in german high performance data centers in Karlsruhe and Frankfurt am Main. We have contractually obliged our subcontractors for order data processing in the sense of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR). You'll find more privacy information here.
