Could be Amazing
Ok, I love it! BUT...everyone is correct thus far, locations are accurate on the maps, however some pics are flip flopped (both GPS pics in Base Approach just need flip flopped), Mountain Temple has too many challenges (the one that is the southern most on the map isn't there. I verified multiple times, the game says i have 5/5 challenges and you list 6, I know i did. Ot get that one). You are also missing the camp in Mountain Pass. In Shantytown 1, the map locations and pictures are correct, but the words Jade Horse and Jade Water Buffalo need to be flip flopped. ShipWrecked Beach Day, the eastern most challenge pictures, Mine Sweeper and Cairn Raider, need to be flip flopped (the map location is correct, but you have the pictures wrong). Also, flip flop the photos for the worn wallet and the jade shaped head rest in the beach day. In the research base, you are missing a challenge, there are 5, you list 4 (there is an area past the GPS retrieved past the climbable window. Shoot this token from the door near the base camp that was pried open).
I will update this when I get further into the game!
Overall the app is worth the cost, but it has its issues. The biggest is that there are MANY instances where the descriptions and photos of items are swapped with others; meaning the map has all the icons in the right places (so far for me, at least), but the descriptions are sometimes mixed up. Really confusing at first until you figure out what's going on.
Also, it would be nice if it would remember your preferences to not play the background music and sound effects. I don't even know why those are included, since I'm pretty sure the vast majority of people are going to run this while playing the game, and they're going to want to hear the game, not this app.
Finally, a checklist or summary view would be nice so that you can see the progress, both overall and for each area, without having to go in and out of each area, which takes an oddly long amount of loading time.
Good App.. With some small problems
Love the app!! Very helpful, but there is a few photos and description that are incorrect. It's not a huge problem because the location on the maps are correct, it's just hard to figure out if the item you are hunting is on the top of a building or in the building when the photo and description is incorrect. If they can fix that I'll give it 5 stars..
