Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Scavenger hunt in downtown Savannah Ga. My guys loved it. I was able to set up a city wide scavenger hunt and run it with only the help of one other person. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The app made checking in such a breeze. We were able to run the hunt with only 2 admins. Everyone loved being able to see and download their pictures at the end. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It was a little bit pricey but other than that nothing the user interface was perfect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Do it. It was great. Set up and use were easy on both ends. The app is easy to use but for setting up the event the web interface was the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Needed less people to administer the city wide scavenger hunt. It also saved the task so I can run the same event over and over with different groups of people Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like that I can create an activity quickly and easily. Students upload photos and information to the app in a game-type manner. It incorporates fun into learning! I also like that the students wanted to participate. They also liked that they can use their phones while learning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

My company used this app during our annual company-wide scavenger hunt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I liked how this app replaced the need for hauling notebooks and pens around the city with us. It's always so difficult to shuffle through pamphlets and keep track of all the milestones. I also like the feature that allows you to upload photo proof of milestone being visited in real time! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Don't really have any complaints about this app Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This helped so much with keeping everything competitive, organized and simple! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

Our company does a yearly scavanger hunt. As the company has grown, it has become harder and harder to manage this event. We used goosechase this year to handle most of the details and it was by far the smoothest it has ever been. Helped with score keeping, so that we knew the winner at the end vs having to wait for everything to be tallied. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love being able to upload images/video directly through the app, seeing missions / point values, and keeping track of how my team ranked against other teams.

I also loved being able to see other teams posts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I didn't love the 30second video limit as it cut off some of our recordings. I also had trouble getting logged in, but this is probably do more to user error. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Goosechase made our most recent scavanger hunt the most successful one yet. It took out the headaches and added to the fun. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We used goosechase for a company-wide activity day. Helped us to communicate as we explored the city and competed in a photo scavenger hunt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Loved how customizable it is to your company. Our HR staff was able to include a lot of silly inside jokes, which the team loved. I also liked the live feed of other teams' progress. Made for a friendly & competitive activity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you have to take the photo within the app. Would be much easier to submit photos from your camera roll. We would have been able to capture better moments from throughout the day. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

Staying organized & referencing the rules/tasks throughout our scavenger hunt. Kept everyone on the same page,. Easier than carrying around a packet of paper. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

I used this to track our team's progress relative to other teams' progress during a company scavenger hunt event. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The live scoring and updated challenges were cool to see. I also liked the persistence aspect, I was able to access stuff uploaded during the hunt afterwards to show coworkers or anyone else curious about it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When there were challenges with a precedence aspect, it was not obvious to me. A clearer indication of the order of challenges where applicable would be good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Keep in mind they can order challenges, if you don't respect that you can get a deduction for completing a challenge out of order. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the provider? What benefits have you realized?

I solved my previously unknown desire to have a live score/rank for team events otherwise happening independently. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
