WhereYouGo app issues - QR code

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone had issues recently with the WhereYouGo app on the Android phone automatic prompting the user to scan the QR codes?   I had a couple of recent finders on my Wherigos that were struggling with this issue and were led to believe that they had to look for QR codes in several of the stages in my Wherigo.  I don’t use QR codes in any of my Wherigos.  I know the Wherigo app for the iPhone doesn't have the QR code scan capability so there's no issue there.   Thanks in advance!

There is already a thread discussing this: 

In general I think it is a nice idea to be able to add QR codes (and other new possibilities) to the gameplay but the problem today is indeed that other playes (iOS and/or Geooh Live) do not currently support it and ideally the activation of this feature should be controlable by the cartridge as to not to confuse the users (novice users mistake the player feature for the QR scanning as a part of the specific cartridge...). Of course that will not be possible from the current state of the Wherigo system as it is in practice declared dead by GS (and the revival process by the Wherigo Foundation is a very long and hard road to travel).

In our local Belgian/Dutch Wherigo Facebook group there was also recently a confused user asking the same questions: where did I have to look for a QR?

Thanks for pointing that out. I'll have to remember to search first before posting a topic.  :)

I'm all for adding QR codes to gameplay, but I would prefer that the feature be controllable by the cartridge, not the player.  It's causing some confusion with some of the novice users in my area unfortunately.

Antwoord op je vraag: op http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/ kan je offline kaarten downloaden. Zet ze ergens op je telefoon (intern of mSD-kaart maakt niet uit) en stel in WhereYouGo in waar de app ze kan vinden.
(To answer your question: on http://download.mapsforge.org/maps/ you can download offline maps. Put them on your phone's internal or mSD memory and adjust WhereYouGo's setting where to find them.)
