Does not work on iPhone X

This sounds like an interesting research study. However the app does not work on my iPhone X. There was no "Agree" button visible to consent to share my data. Then on the first tutorial page for the treasure search - the instructions covered up the location you were supposed to click. Test this app people!

Sorry you had a bad experience. Can you give us more information about what you saw? Was your phone in landscape mode? If possible, can you provide a screenshot? Feel free to respond directly to

This seems like a very interesting app, and study. I read about it in one of the New Scientist magazine articles. As someone who has psychiatric disorders and has many family members with psychiatric disorders, I love the approach to the study of it all through apps and games. I’ll be sure to tell my family and friends about the app to help the study along!
