Foursquare With a Storyline: Google Brings Ingress to iOS
That’s because Ingress is – at its heart – a location based check-in service, like Foursquare or Facebook Places.
I’ve got so many friends who have been playing Ingress since way back when and raved about it, maybe its getting old hat to them, I don’t know, but I’m going to find out for myself now that it is finally available on iOS.
There just don’t seem to be that many location based games as opposed to gamified location based apps.
I also love Science Fiction so I look forward to finally being able to download it myself.
Location and mobile open so many opportunities for gamification in apps. Hopefully opening this up to more users will revitalize it and encourage more organizations to find ways to engage customers, staff and stakeholders where their relationship has a location based element.
It’s funny how many companies I have spoken to or consulted with have shown an interest but never done anything, despite acknowledging the potential value. I don’t know that this will help, but for some it might.
I’ll be back at some stage to share what I have learnt from Ingress on iOS.
