Anna: Wait! 
Don't be alarmed! 
Please, hear me out! 
I don't have much time, so listen carefully. Dublin is in danger! The whole world is, to be precise! I have uploaded an application to your phone. Find a safe location, away from prying eyes, and launch it. It's directly connected to our main server and is operated by an artificial intelligence called Ynfo. Listen carefully to what it tells you, OK? Oh, and one last thing: don't trust the falcons!

Shorter but decent, little questo. Need to be a bit careful around some of the gated locations! Definitely needs to be done on a weekday in daylight for maximum appreciation.
