• Teachers can transfer Hunts to student devices using AirDrop.
• A game of Waypoint EDU is a great reason for teachers to take their classes outside.

Fun way to get your kids OUTSIDE!

As a parent, I’m always looking for ways to get my children out and about, to burn off their energy and get their minds going, and Waypoint EDU does just that! My daughter and son had a great time finding the different waypoints and then using what they’ve learned in school to answer the quiz questions. I like that the app requires parent (or teacher) involvement in creating the playfield and selecting the waypoints, and even gives us the option to set up our own hunt. My kids have already given me ideas on what they want to see for their next hunt! I will definitely be sharing this app with their teachers!

Love this so far but..

I think this app is great and the applications are so many but the only thing that would make it perfect is being able to edit where waypoints are placed?? Instead of only being able to randomize the points..I’m not sure if I’m just unsure of how to read and understand the app layout (which is also a bit confusing and ambiguous at times..) but I just can’t figure out that one detail.. GAAAH!

Sorry for the confusion; this is possible. From the Creator map, if you tap to select the waypoint marker, then tap and hold on the same marker, after a short delay the marker will lift up and you can drag it to a new position.

As an educator, I would love to use this. However, I would like to see track the students progress. Some kind of a sign in and a way to show the progress of the students from question to question.

Thank you for the feedback. To do this we had to release a separate version (Waypoint EDU VPP) that integrates with Apple's Schoolwork app.
