The Discover iOS app allows users to participate in engaging, iBeacon-powered campus tours and scavenger hunts.

Users join a tour by selecting it from the list of available location groups. After entering their names and email addresses, participants then select a destination from the list of available locations and attempt to find it. The location list is grouped by building and can be filtered by all, remaining, and found.

iBeacons are used to determine a participant’s proximity to destinations, and the app’s UI updates to show whether the selected destination is far, near, or found. Participants can view additional text or video content for each location after finding it.

Progress is automatically synced to the Discover server and can be viewed by administrators for tracking participation and preparing reports.
