Great way to explore!
These adventure labs are a great way to show or explore areas of interest where there is no room for physical caches or where caches are not allowed or not possible. I especially like the adventure labs that have a bonus cache associated with them and where each waypoint provides a clue. A bonus letterbox can work great!
Infuriating at times
As the only option to do lab caches these days, had no choice but to deal with this app. At its best, the graphics were good (much nicer than the Wherigo app.) But had lots of difficulties on an iPhone X. Sometimes the app wouldn’t start (just showing a blank orange screen) and had to re-install the app several times. Once it is working, several annoying issues. 1) when you are at a location (blue dot and orange dot are on top of each other), I could not click on orange dot. 2) after correctly answering a lab cache question, a pop up asks if you want to review the journal-this is a wasted question since you have no other option. I have zero interest in reviewing the journal and rather it default to the map to avoid needless clicks. 3) I tend to turn off location services unless absolutely necessary. When I started the app the next day, it assumes I am at coords N 0 W 0 off the coast of Africa and the list is way too long to find the series of interest. Instead, the app should remember where I was last at or at least give me list of the series that are in-progress or completed.
Good app would like a bit more though
This app relies on a active data connection. If you don’t have service completing a cache can be problematic. I’ve done a couple that we’re outdoors in cell dead zones and no WiFi for miles. Luckily before reaching the next stage I got service and could enter the answer to bring up the next cache. I was lucky that there was only one obvious trail between the caches since none of the map services worked either.
So it would nice if there was a way to have the app verify multiple correct answers, save them, and then upload them when service returns. I’ve created an adventure & I know that there’s no requirement to see if you have cell service as the CO. And then all cell service isn’t created equal.
I understand under the covers these are different beasts from other caches, but...
It would be nice to allow TBs to visit. Allow comments on individual caches, or allow comments to be made from home after the fact rather than apparently requiring comments from your phone immediately upon completion. Maybe allow pictures too.
