Sure. That’s the nature of mobile apps today. Buy, then try. How about this? Have you ever downloaded and tried out an app that you regretted buying because it was so much fun? Fun as in addictive. Fun as in ‘Why am I doing thing?’ Because it’s fun.
Scavenging For Fun, Not Profit
This is not the type of app I would normally buy. The Pocket Scavenger seems more like a game but it’s really entertainment. A friend recommended that I try it. He owes me $4.99 and about 20 hours of my life.
If I could find a way to make money with The Pocket Scavenger I’d play even more. As it is now, it’s just addictive fun.
The app is billed as an imaginative way to interact with the environment around you.
Fire it up and you’re asked to find and then take a photo of a laundry list of odd items. Something small, a stain, something old, something used, something borrowed.
You get the idea. While you’re using The Pocket Scavenger, and you will use it and like it, you’ll be wondering why you’re using it.
The app’s interface is a bit quirky, comical, even whimsical, but it fits the action.
Scavenge results can be uploaded to a map so you can see other scavenger hunts going on around you, and share yours on Facebook and Twitter.
What’s interesting about using The Pocket Scavenger for awhile is what it does to your perspective about the world around you.
It helps you to think outside of the box, to explore new ways of thinking and interacting with objects, locations, and events.
That alone is worth the price of admission for an app you don’t want, don’t need, but won’t stop using once you start.
