At long last, our new release is finally available for download. If you’re running iOS 7 and have autoupdates turned on, you should receive it automatically.
Here are the highlights of improvements in the new version:
iOS 7 & Native iPad Support
Klikaklu now presents a clean iOS 7-style UI, with simpler navigation. We’ve added support for iOS 7’s dynamic text sizing, as well as the ability to share hunts using Airdrop. Also, we no longer run as an iPhone app on the iPad, we’re iPad native!
Quizzes and Polls
Clues and hunts can now present quizzes and polls to players as they play. And during play, the host can track how they responded with analytics.
New Clue Styles
In addition to the automatic image matching clues that are Klikaklu’s signature, we’ve added two new styles:
QR code - We’ll automatically generate codes for each clue. You then print out sticker sheets and distribute them where you’d like. This is great for creating general purpose, relocatable hunts, and for those tricky places where it’s difficult to find a good match target.
Free form - You describe what you want your players to accomplish, with text and an optional image. Once they’ve succeeded, they take a picture to prove they did so.
Importable Images - For situations where you want to create a hunt remotely, you can now import images for matching. If an imported image contains GPS information, it will be used for initializing the clue’s location.
New Clue Location Options
You can now choose to reveal the location of a clue as a hint instead of automatically requiring your players to be in range, or ignore location altogether.
Improved Battery Life
We’ve tuned Klikaklu to minimize use of your device’s GPS, so you should see considerably less drain on your battery.
Hunt Cover Images
The hunt cover view may now be configured to present your own custom image, in various formats.
Live Hunt Progress Tracking
The host of a hunt may monitor the progress of their players as the hunt progresses without needing to refresh their status screen.
Better Hunt Reuse
Hunts may now be duplicated, in order to create new hunts based on existing ones. You may also reset them, removing all hunt plays, for situations where you simply want to recreate the same hunt with different players, and don’t care about keeping the record of the previous players.
We’ve also added hunt templates, allowing you to share hunts you’ve created with other hunt hosts. They can then create their own based on yours with very little effort.
Toolbars and buttons on maps now hide with a single tap, giving a fuller view of the surroundings.
When finding nearby hunts or setting the location of a pin, you may now search by name to relocate the map.
- You may now create and play hunts, with all features available, free for one week. After that, creating hunts requires an upgrade (playing remains free). The upgrade is available at an introductory price of $4.99. Current premier members are automatically upgraded.
- Ads are no longer displayed in the app. If you purchased the basic upgrade to remove ads within the last month, we will refund it for you.
