App Update News

Hello FLAGHUNTER!

We have been looking forward to Easter for a long time - with all its surprises, the egg hunt in the sunshine, happy moments with family and friends and of course the cool challenges at FLAGSTACK! Have you found them all yet? The little Easter bunnies on the map and maybe also the special golden eggs with the extra badge? Up to and including Sunday (time zone Europe / Berlin) you have time to check the surroundings and we wish you good luck...

Have you found the most colorful egg we hid over Easter already? The search field has been extended to your trusted App Store (iOS / Android), because since Easter the latest App Update for your favorite GPS game is hidden there.

Get started quickly and install the latest version of FLAGSTACK. Not only because it's cool to be up to date - no, it's really worth it! Here's what we did especially for you and put a lot of effort into it:


iOS - version 2.3.0.17

- we have updated various features to iOS 12 (backward compatible) for stability

- on the map you can now select "centered continuously" and "centered continuously in
  driving / walking direction" - just tap the direction arrow multiple times and start playing

- get a lost Data Matrix Code of your Treasure Flag sent again via email after deploy

- the routing on the map to your selected flag is working again

- now you can also read your capture- and deploy rewards in game as a chat message

- don't miss any of your personal successes anymore with the popular note, that will make
  you happy at every level-up

- last but not least: preparations for the brand spanking new flag type, which will bring you
  lots of fun soon! We just keep saying: get off the sofa... :-)

 

Android - version 2.3.0.20

- we have updated various features to Android 9 (backward compatible) for stability

- get a lost Data Matrix Code of your Treasure Flag sent again via email after deploy

- the routing on the map to your selected flag is working again

- comfortably capture Treasure Flags in the dark by turning on your smartphone's
  flashlight while scanning

- the graphics size on the map has been optimized for modern devices

- now you can also read your capture- and deploy rewards in game as a chat message

- don't miss any of your personal successes anymore with the popular note, that will make
  you happy at every level-up

- Personal Flags again can be captured directly from the map

- last but not least: preparations for the brand spanking new flag type, which will bring you
  lots of fun soon! We just keep saying: get off the sofa... :-)


We would like to thank everyone who actively contributed to the App Update: the FLAGHUNTER, who recommend good improvements; the beta testers who have put functions through their paces over and over again; friends and families for their patience; to the weather god for great outdoor weather for testing; and last but not least the programmers in the background, who have worked out great solutions with good ideas to make FLAGSTACK even better for you...

We hope you enjoy trying out the latest features

Your Team FLAGSTACK

PS: If you really like FLAGSTACK and its new features, you can support us with a 5-star rating ( if you like, even with a short recession ) in your trusted App Store. This will make us really happy and increase FLAGSTACKs visibility, the number of players and therefor the number of flags in your area!

Easter with FLAGSTACK: On your eggs, get set, go...!

Next weekend the big days arrive - Easter holidays are coming up! And to make sure you're going outside, FLAGSTACK will come up with a fantastic Easter special.

During the upcoming week, you’ll find an Easter egg in your inventory. Using the app, you can deploy this Easter egg from Good Friday (19.April 2019, 00:01, timezone Europe / Berlin). This Easter egg automatically hides 40 sweet, small Easter bunnies on the map within a radius of 1 km around your current deploy location - and you have to find them! They’ll become visible on the map when you are close enough to the Easter specials - about 200 meters! By the way, you’ll find them close to roads and footpaths, and only you can see your Easter bunnies. You’ll get 40 points for every collected Easter bunny, for at least 19 collected Easter bunnies you’ll receive a cute Easter badge. And don't worry, they're not shy and won't hobble away :-)

Because so many players were overjoyed last year, the golden Easter bunny is available for you in our webshop again! This golden Easter bunny hides automatically 30 golden Easter eggs within 1km around your current deploy location. These golden Easter eggs are only visible on the map when you get close to them (about 200m)! Contrary to the cute Easter bunnies, other players can also find and capture your golden Easter bunny and the golden Easter eggs. You’ll get additional 4-10 Capture On points for them, and for the golden Easter bunny and the golden Easter eggs you’ll get 6-40 capture points. For at least 22 captured golden Easter eggs you’ll also receive a lovely Easter badge. https://www.flagstack.net/shop

Please make sure to have a good GPS signal before the deployment - preferably in front of the door and also there where you can and want to collect the Easter specials. A review, of whether the road is in a secure area or how good the mobile reception is, cannot be done. It will happen in some cases, that Easter Specials are not reachable. Therefore, there is no legal claim to be able to collect all the Easter Specials. That's why you get much more specials than necessary to receive the badge. The promotion of all Easter specials ends on Sunday after Easter (28.April 2019, 23:59, timezone Europe / Berlin).

Of course there are also great offers* with discounts of up to 40% in our webshop https://www.flagstack.net/shop for you at Easter (from Good Friday to Easter Monday). They will change daily, and the very special offers will be available only hourly - so you also have to look for them too...

Besides relaxing time for family and friends at Easter, you also have exciting plans with FLAGSTACK now! Go out and have fun searching...

We wish you a happy Easter!

New month, new LABs, new feature...

The first quarter of this year has gone by like clockwork. In the meantime it's April and spring at the FLAGSTACK Headquarter (FHQ), and we’ve put the sunny energy boost to create YOUR fun...

What do we all expect from a state capital? Of course that there’s a LAB (Local Area Badge). For the USA, we can remove this from the ToDo list with the great groundwork of SoccerFanatics (US)! Most tourists coming to Washington, D.C. will visit the more famous monuments: those to Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt; commemorating those who served in World War II or the Vietnam War; or prominent Americans such as Martin Luther King, Jr. But there are dozens of other monuments and memorials here, also worthy of a visit—some in plain view; others in out-of-the-way spots; some so obscure even local residents are unaware of them.

SoccerFanatics has identified 78 of these "other" monuments, and invites you to visit them. For those visiting the monuments, SoccerFanatics would appreciate it if you on facebook would write a note on Flagstack USA saying which one of these monuments were your favorites.

How do we call such a great thing? HOTSPOT! What do you find close to such great ideas? The new quality feature at FLAGSTACK: the HOTSPOT on the map - whenever you see the icon, it means lots of fun, lots of points and a good time :)

Are you ready for something new at FLAGSTACK? We are working on a FLAGSTACK App Update and want to introduce the best new feature today: the FLAGSTACK Voice Capture! It's as simple as it sounds and we'd like to invite you to test this new feature right now... 

Imagine you are on your bicycle, the wind is blowing around your nose and the sun is shining into your face and unfortunately also on the smartphone display in the steering wheel mount. You have no chance to see the display and therefore the FLAGSTACK map properly.

This is THE ONE AND ONLY solution for you: if you are in the capture radius of a Green Flag, just say "Hey Siri, capture Green Flag" (iOS) or "Ok Google, capture Green Flag" (Android) and you can wrap this flag up! With the note " Congrats! The voice capture was successful and you have earned 8 points." you get the verification about the successful capture. Of course this works with all virtual flag types, you just have to use the right flag type for your voice capture. Try it out right now and you'll see how simple it is!

There's something left...: Two new LABs (Local Area Badges) are available for you in Brunswick (DE) from 07.April 2019. Degeisi and Freckless, two tireless Flaghunter from Germany, have spared neither cost nor effort to create the "Night Trail Brunswick" as well as the "Treasure Trail Brunswick". Thanks to the support of many other Flagstackers there are now hundreds of Night Flags and hundreds of Treasure Flags in Brunswick Veltenhof-Ruehme (DE) - and this means: thousands of points for you and your FLAGSTACK friends! These trails will be solemnly inaugurated at the event https://www.flagstack.net/event/1805! Are you part of it?

We wish you lots of fun with all these innovations!

Best regards from your

Team FLAGSTACK

International Women's Day 2019

International Women's Day will be celebrated by women's organisations worldwide on 08 March 2019. It is also known as International Women's Day, Women's Day, United Nations Day for Women's Rights or International Women's Day.

Are you ready for the fifth season?

Helau! Alaaf! The world is big,
there's hardly anyone who doesn't like it.

And ‘cause you're tempted to go outside,
the flags also dress up beautifully with pride!

Yourself, green, white, yellow and pink,
will soon be painted by a blink,

to be pretty and fine
for this rhyme.

Go get 'em and take care to make it right,
collect 200 until Sunday night.

The spook's over, the badge's straight,
the fifth season was pretty great.

So we'll take a little break,
with carnival, shrovetide or your local spake.

Over are these great days,
but the next funny ideas are on their ways!

Collect at least 200 costumed Green Flags, White Flags, Eternal Flags, Friend Flags and/or Jumper Flags in the time from Rose Monday at 11:11 a.m. (04.March 2019, time zone Europe / Berlin) until Sunday night (10.March 2019, 23:59 p.m., time zone Europe / Berlin) and enjoy these great days and the cheeky badge with 2,000 extra points and crazy 200 extra credits!

Helau! Alaaf!

FLAGSTACK RECORDS: 22 million captures!

Incredibly important events took place last week and we think you might missed one or the other... So here's a brief summary of what happened:

After the "Make New Friendships Day" on Monday and the "Plumpudding Day" on Tuesday, the "World Radio Day" followed on Wednesday. There was no getting around “Valentine's Day" on Thursday (question: have you finished the great badges yet????), but the "Flag Day" in Canada on Friday is somewhat less known.

But the biggest event took place on Saturday, which we would like to keep in mind: Capture number 22 million at your favorite game FLAGSTACK ! ! !

When and where?

Matching the logo, a Green Flag was captured in the Netherlands (orange) on 16.02.2019 on a sunny afternoon.

Who and what?

On his tour our world-famous Official FLAGSTACK Volunteer Borghuis (NL) had the lucky moment for this record and got a bright smile on his face and additionally a very SPECIAL Friend Flag :-)

Would you also like to reach this worldwide fame with a message like this? If so, play FLAGSTACK as often as possible to your heart's content. We keep our fingers crossed that, at the moment of moments around the next million captures, you'll find the right one!

Have fun picking flowers in February on the FLAGSTACK map!
