What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Practice geocaching and following directions; test academic knowledge with the quiz-creating tool.
Ease of Play
Very easy to use, although creating a play field requires precision, or users may easily find themselves in unintended (or potentially unsafe) spots. Creating quizzes is very easy and user-friendly.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
If parents plan the hunts with safety in mind, this app can be a fun, quiz-style learning experience. Waypoint EDU's quizzes are easy for adults to create and for kids to take, and the maps and visuals are crystal clear. Kids will likely enjoy being outside, searching for locations, and answering the questions. Note: Adults must draw the play fields very carefully; it's easy to find that a waypoint has been placed in someone's private yard, in the middle of a street, or in other unintended (and potentially unsafe) spots. Also, though there's no content that's inappropriate for kids under 13, an adult should supervise if younger kids use it.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
