The app is small, lightweight, does not drain your battery a lot. It does not require constant in-app purchases to keep playing. It does require a constant data connection, for updates, but uses little data. It will take advantage of offline Google Maps too. As to the game, it's partly a virtual treasure hunt, it's partly a sport; a great way to get out and get exercise, ideally with friends. You need to get near to each virtual flag to capture (cap) it. (All flags stay on the map for others to cap.) Flags are already deployed all over the world; win more flags just by playing, and earn points when others cap your flags. If you are unlucky enough to start to play somewhere there are no flags yet, then it's still worthwhile to start playing, with a friend. Each player gets a bundle of flags to deploy, around their area, and each play day, another free one, and another free for every 10 found, so easy to grow the map in towns or parks. More players boost the fun. As to costs, it's practical to play for free, with infrequent in-app adverts, BUT a cheap annual subscription provides many benefits, which include free special flags, extra daily benefits and no adverts in-app.
Fun game to play while out and about.
App works well. I'd like to suggest a special flag for flags placed in an interesting location. This is what makes Geocaching so good and adds much needed depth to an otherwise kind of boring and repetitive game.
Fun GPS game, enjoyed by our whole family
Good game to get outdoors An easy game to play to get you out and about. Low cost too.
No problem here App works well and game good to play.
