Hide and Seek is a GPS and map based realtime game tool for group of friends playing hide-and-seek in a park, or around the house, or in a city like New York, Paris, Munich or Lost City In The Jungle, or playing paint ball. It is fun and sometimes more than a game. You can see, find and meet your lost - or hidden - friends or kids with this app. Use it as you wish.
In Hide and Seek games number of players conceal themselves in the environment, to be found by one or more "seekers". One player is given the designation of "it" or "seeker". The overall objective is to remain undiscovered by "it".
In a more active variant, hide and seek can be combined with the game of tag. Instead of "it" simply spotting players, he or she has to tag them instead to get them out. Hiders can make a dash for 'Home Base', which is usually a landmark next to where whoever is "it" counts off. Touching the base area makes a hider safe, and the aim of the game is to touch base without being tagged.
A derivative game is called Sardines. In this variant, only one person hides and the others must then find the person that's hiding and hide with them. The last person to find the group that's hiding is the loser.
Hide and Seek adds more fun to these games. Please note that the last 10 meters is the real fun in hide-and-seek games when this iPhone app can not and does not want to help you...
You can follow and discover up to 100 friends in your closed virtual group at the same time. It is suitable for groups of paint ball fans and wildlife campers too.
You can be identified by your Facebook login name or Twitter id or full name. Thanks to Facebook and Twitter, we do not have to ask for passwords or phone numbers, and we do not have to store personal information. This location service is free.
Hide And Seek tries to localize all of your friends. Enter the name, or Twitter id, or Facebook address of your mates and follow the blue and orange arrow with your iPhone. Tap the color pin and the popup window with the name of your friend. To be discoverable, they have to switch our app on and set your name (or Facebook or Twitter name) in their Players list.
If you have an iPhone 3Gs with OS 3.0+, Hide And Seek utilizes the GPS chip to give excellent accuracy which is appr. 10 meters. When you have an iPhone with no GPS capabilities, our app uses cell tower ID information to provide you with your approximate location (appr. 50-100m), helping you determine where you are, what's around you, and how to find your friends.
