09 Vodafone BufferBusters: a new Augmented Reality mobile gaming app
“Buffer Busters” challenging users to go hunting virtual “Buffer Monsters” that are slowing down networks. Download the app to hunt down monsters, then catch them. When you catch 50, you need to take them in-store, for your chance to win 1 of 3 prizes….. which probably means everyone who got this far will win a prize.
