The first time running COM.POSITIONS – Penelope you will be asked to allow Location Services access to your current location. In order for the app to work as intended you need to answer OK to this question. What this does is that it grants the app access to your Location Services which is needed to make use of your device GPS in order to be able to determine your location. This in turn is needed for the app to work, since it’s playing different parts of the piece depending on where you’re located on the Kulturkvarteret in Kristianstad. If you by mistake were to answer Don’t allow to this question, close the app, navigate to Settings/Privacy/Location Services and find Penelope in the list of apps presented there. There you can give the app access to your Location Services. If you have Location Services turned off on your device you will need to navigate to the same place as mentioned above and turn it on for the device in order for the app to work as intended.
Start the app before you arrive at Kulturkvarteret.
Begin your journey on the library square. Choose your direction around the block by going to the left or to the right. Walk slowly around. Stop occasionally and listen to the music.

You will get the best experience with a pair of headphones. Enjoy!
