A few things that are good to know before and while enjoying geoparties...

Preparation prior to geofunning

  • You can’t perform geoparty in certain places on Mondays – some assignments are connected to visiting a museum or other tourist attractions, which are usually closed on Mondays.
  • Some geofun assignments can only be performed on certain dates (e.g. when an event is taking place) or only within a given period of time (e.g. night games). This information is always indicated and when planning you need to pay attention to it.
  • Always charge your mobile phone before a geofun assignment – you can’t do much with a blank display.
  • Check to make sure you don’t need a specific tool to help you carry out an assignment. If you need to e.g. draw something for an assignment, then you can’t get the job done without pencil crayons :)
  • Maintain your application up to date, which is essential for geofunning to the max without technical problems.
  • Connecting to the Internet is only necessary for downloading the selected game. It is only needed during the game for viewing maps.
  • Started is marked on the map with a green flag. The destination or places are marked with a checkered flag unless the destination is secret.
  • There is no need to look for a starting point for Schoolfun games, you can run them from anywhere.

Technical problems during geofunning?

  • In geoparty, going through checkpoints is often a task. The application shows your current distance to it. As you approach, the distance decreases, and if you move away, the distance increases. To go in the right direction, you need to reduce the distance at the same pace as the distance you go. If it decreases more slowly, it means you are not heading to the point exactly. Once the distance is zero, you have reached the right place.
  • If you start having troubles with determining your position (e.g. distances to the next destination keep changing, or inaccuracy of position keeps changing), try turning off and then turning on the GPS function on your phone.
  • If you start having troubles with determining your position (e.g. distances to the next destination keep changing, or inaccuracy of position keeps changing), try turning off and then turning on the GPS function on your phone.
  • If your battery runs out during geofunning, after charging it you can continue the game where you left off.
  • If you encounter a technical problem and the operation of the application is, e.g., choppy or even freezes, try to
    1. free up space in your device by ending running concurrent background applications that you do not need now, or
    2. close the GEOFUN application (display the list of applications and click on "force termination" for GEOFUN) and restart it, and if necessary
    3. try reinstalling the application - uninstall the original version, download and install a new one from the store.
  • If technical problems persist, please send the error (including a description) directly from the application - on the "Settings" tab, via the "Report an error" button.
