About Virtual Geocaching - Xnote

What is Virtual Geocaching - Xnote?

Virtual Geocaching - Xnote is an educational app that introduces kids (and parents!) to the concept of geocaching.

The Virtual Geocaching app is available only in the App Store and is rated for users of all ages. This app costs $2.99 to download but there are no other additional in-app purchases or advertisements.

Geocaching is similar to a scavenger or treasure hunt that happens in the real world with actual objects. People from all around the world participate and leave items for others to find.

Participants use their mobile devices’ GPS tracker to locate specific coordinates in their neighborhood to find hidden containers filled with goodies. These containers could include notes, little toys, or knick knacks.

The Virtual Geocaching - Xnote app makes this process a lot simpler for parents and their children. Parents can set specific coordinates for their kids to find, and once they do they’ll get a text message with a special note from mom or dad. Kids get out of the house and it’s a fun way for parents to interact with their children.

The app is rated 4 out of 5 stars and is used in a variety of scenarios, from playtime to parties and more. Similar apps include Forest Quest: Kids Board Games and Grow Recycling.

Is Virtual Geocaching - Xnote safe for my kids?

Virtual Geocaching - Xnote is safe for kids, but young ones should use it with their parents.

The app is rated for kids 4 and up, and can be used in a variety of ways depending on the ages of the participants. This can actually be a great way to teach kids a variety of skills while getting off the couch. For example, they’ll learn mapping skills, improve their communication, get moving, and experience more outdoor time in nature. They also become more involved with parents and develop a greater sense of team building and collaborative play.

This app isn’t just for kids and parents, though. Adults and teens can use it with friends as well. For example, they might “hide” a virtual message like a text or Facebook message somewhere on their GPS map.

Parents should keep in mind that the app accesses phones’ location and any photos you want to send, but these are shared only with those involved in your geocaching game. This app can be an awesome way to spend an afternoon for kids, teens, and adults.

The app developers state that geocaching is a fun way to encourage children to explore the outdoors, something that is severely absent from the modern kid’s day. Parents can rest easy that Virtual Geocaching - Xnote won’t expose their children to strangers.

As long as they keep the treasure hunt within a safe boundary and distance, kids should stay out of harm’s way. Other apps with this focus on the outdoors include Plum’s Photo Hunt, Star Walk Kids, and Wild Time.
