Ipadpalooza 2016 Wrap-Up

ClwkqciVYAAyMC_This past week, The Eventzee Team (Dylan & Cody) headed down to the wonderful City of Austin, Texas for the 5th Annual iPadPalooza Conference.

IPadPalooza, deemed more of a learning festival than a conference, celebrates the cultural-shift iPads and similar devices have brought about in the education world. The event focused on creativity, social collaboration, engagement, and the compelling ways schools have integrated iPads into their classrooms and beyond.

As a sponsor of this year’s iPadPalooza Conference, Eventzee’s mobile based scavenger hunt app was used to host and run the APPmazing Race each day throughout the conference. We had a ton of players and teams from across the country compete in a variety of tasks in order to gain points and hopefully win some pretty sweet prizes. The teams did not disappoint and came ready to play each day. From costumed crusaders to high flying daredevils, the APPmazing Race players were all in it to win it.

Check out the gallery of photos here, but be warned there are a TON so it may take some time to load.

When it was all said and done, many teams and individuals walked away with iPad Pros, iPad Mini’s, YETI Gear, and an assortment of other incredible prizes all put together by Carl Hooker and the iPadPalooza Team. The Eventzee Team may not have walked away with any physical prizes, but we had an amazing time at the conference. We really enjoyed meeting many new people, taking selfies/giving out high fives, and showing off our awesome suits!

We would like to thank all of you who stopped by our booth, participated in the APPmazing Race, and those of you who talked to us just to find out where we got our suits from. It was an amazing week and we can’t wait to attend future iPadPalooza events.

For those of you who attended iPadPalooza last week, we are offering 10% off of our services throughout the month of July 2016. And, if you’re active on social media, post about how you would use Eventzee at your campus/in the classroom, tag Eventzee, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt valued at $500.

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee version 1.6 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. We’ve introduced a new photo clue feature and fixed a few bugs. Download the update today!

Features Include:

  • LIBRARY UPLOAD OPTION:
    Eventzee 1.6 features a new photo library upload option. You can now use photos you have taken in the past and upload them for certain photo scavenger hunt clues. This feature can be toggled on and off for each clue individually and is perfect for uploading screenshots of social media posts, throwback photos, etc.
  • LIMITLESS CLUE LENGTH (iOS):
    Previously iOS devices limited clues to a few lines of text, but now clue descriptions can be as long as you like.
  • PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FIX (Android Users):
    It was brought to our attention that Android devices were not receiving push notifications, so this issue has been resolved in the latest update.

The new Library Upload option is mostly for private clients, but our weekend photo scavenger hunt will see clues from time to time use the option. For example our #ThrowbackThursday clues will now be upload available. So instead of taking a photo of a computer screen, you can upload the photo straight from the app. It is still important for the integrity of the game though that photos are taken in real time, so this upload option will not be available for all clues.

Checkout the video below to see how it works:

Be sure to join this weekend’s free photo scavenger hunt to test out these new features. To join these hunts, just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP or scan this week’s join code found on the blog. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee hunt please contact eventzee@munzee.com and we’ll get you set up with the right package.
