This application is an experiment on whether gamification adds value to the conference experience and if it works to promote desired behaviours.
After logging in with a nick name of your choice, you'll be presented with a list of quests. Each quest has several different achievements you can earn during the conference in different ways.
The application uses the Bluetooth LE technology to determine the device's location with the help of iBeacons at the venue.
The data collected will not be used for commercial purposes, but an anonymized data set will be made available for future research and development.
By accepting this disclaimer I grant Technoport and Kantega permission to gather and utilize data in this way.
* When I try to open the application a pop-up appears with "Unsupported device" but nothing else.
When you see this dialog, it means that your device is missing one of the key services needed to run this application (Bluetooth LE or Google Play Services). In this case the application can not run on this device.
* I'm not sure whether my location is getting updated or not.
Make sure that (1) you have an active internet connection, (2) you enabled Bluetooth. If both are true, the location monitoring is active. To make sure, you can restart the application and then you'll see a "Location monitoring started" message.
* When I opened the quest list, location monitoring stopped.
Android occasionally cleans up running processes, which results in the messages "Location monitoring stopped" and "Location monitoring started" appearing right after each other. If you didn't see a "started" message, check if you have all the requirements and/or restart the application.
* I completed the task and didn't receive an achievement for it.
Check your internet/bluetooth connection. Some tasks only get fulfilled if a certain amount time was spent at the specific location.
* Can the application monitor my location in the background?
If the application is present on the multitasking screen, and it got there when you used the home button, then it's still actively monitoring (but a bit less frequently).
* A pop-up prevents me from quitting the application
If you press the back button from the quest list, a warning pops up to let you know that quitting this way will stop the location monitoring (even if the application is present on the task stack). You can still quit using the "leave" button in the pop-up.
