Play Wherigo™ cartridges on your iPhone!
Wherigo™ cartridges are GPS-enabled adventures in the real world. Use GPS technology to guide you to physical locations and interact with virtual objects and characters.
Download cartridges for free from the official Wherigo™ web site right from the app and play at your leisure. Note that cartridges are retained for as long as you need them and do not expire. Time estimates given on the web site and in the cartridge description are for expected playing time.
1) With newer devices, you can download cartridges with your computer and drag and drop to the Wherigo app folder in iTunes.
2) You can also drag and drop .gws files to upload with your browser if you have trouble uploading from the app.
3) Be sure to select "PocketPC" as the device when downloading cartridges for best results, although any device should work.
Made a change to enable import from Google Drive. Previously, all files shown in a Google Drive location would be greyed out.
Ratings and Reviews
Choose the Garmin Colorado Option - it works
I was disappointed to learn that you can’t download cartridges on this app. No matter what I did it wouldn’t download past 0%. Then I read in the description that any option works. So instead of choosing the pocket PC option, I chose the Garmin Colorado option - it downloaded to 100% and works just fine on my iPhone.
I’m only giving this app 3 stars though. It’s very old looking and clunky. I would have believed you if you told me it was developed in 1998... Also, why not fix the 0% load issue when it’s been a problem for such a long time and resulted in so many 1 star reviews?
It’s such a great concept and I’m going to use this for my first Wherigo cache on my birthday weekend with a group. I hope that it’s not buggy and I’m sure we will have fun with it. The cartridge is supposed to be 2-3 hours long, so I’ll update this review at the end of February after we’ve fully used it.
Good app, with issues.
You can download cartridges from the app, though it basically takes you to the website where you have to search for it and download. Would be nice if there was a download button on the app search screen. I tried downloading a couple and got 0% even after waiting a couple minutes. I changed to Pocket PC, Garmin Nuvi, Colorado, and Oregon, several times with no download. Then changed back to Pocket PC and it downloaded instantly. Second attempt was the same, after 7-10 attempts trying all different types it finally downloaded. Third attempt it downloaded on the first try, though with Garmin Nuvi. Hope it works anyway.
App constantly crashes while trying to perform certain functions. Specifically the compass options... can't change to true north or magnetic north. Finally got through a Wherigo but was more frustrated than anything else.
