    Hammerdown Monday GPS Foxhunt Giveaway




    Hammerdown Monday, Spleenware's GPS Fox Hunt, and ProThemeDesigns, are sponsoring this unique giveaway! I have a bunch of egrips, little grippy rectangles for the back of your Berry in assorted designs, 1 black and 1 white BlackBerry Gel skins for the Bold 9700, a Storm 9550 accessory pack, and one custom theme, designed to your personal specs and interests from ProThemeDesigns.

    But, this giveaway is a little different than your used to here on BBOS. You get to track down your goodies using Spleenware's free GPS Fox Hunt, an app that lets you use your GPS enabled BlackBerry Smartphone as a high tech Hide and Seek game!

    Here's how it works: Register on BBOS, follow @BlackBerryOS and @adperdue_ on twitter, and read the Hammerdown Monday review column for the hidden (in plain site) key phrase, then track me down using GPS Fox Hunt, say the key phrase, click capture in GPS Fox Hunt, and bada bing! I will hand you your prize on the spot! Neat-o, don't you think?

    My GPS Fox Hunt username is ADPerdue, you will need that to join the game and start huntin me down, if you have any problems or questions, just @ me on twitter.

    If a group tracks me down, I will give the first person to yell the key phrase at me a prize, if everyone yells it at once, I will give the nearest person the prize. The first two 9700 owners get skins, the first Storm 2 owner gets the accessory bundle, and all prizes are first come first served.

    Good luck to all you fantastic BBOS members!

    The first game begins at 11:59 pm, Eastern time, Monday, June 2011, and continues until someone "captures" the fox. All following games will start at 11:59 pm Eastern the following day, but keep your peepers glued to twitter to make sure you don't miss a game!

    Update: After attempting a few games with GPS Fox Hunt and encountering a few stumbling blocks, the BBOS, Hammerdown Monday, GPS Fox Hunt giveaway, will be making a change in the game mechanics.

    While still being an excellent short term game, Fox Hunt, at present is unsuitable for long running games. While I am constantly needing to reboot my device for beta apps, updates, theme development, and so on, Fox Hunt does not survive a reboot. However, this app is still a fun app, I have used it succsefully with a couple of drivers. Please do not leave negative reviews of Fox Hunt on App World, if you do have constructive criticism for the developer, email it to Scott Powell. This app has a ton of potential, let's help him get it there.

    The GPS tracking portion of the game changes to include Google Latitude, which requires installing Google Maps, and signing into your Google account. Please pay attention to your security settings, and read all EULA's (End User License Agreement) very carefully.

    The second change is how to join the game. In Google Latitude, click the menu button and choose add friends from the menu. Choose enter email from the list, and enter the email you recieve from me via twitter.

    When you follow @BlackBerryOS and @adperdue_ on twitter, or if you are already following, tweet "@adperdue_ I'm Gonna Stalk You! #BBOSFoxHunt". I will follow back and DM my Google Latitude info to you, use it to send a friend request from Latitude.

    Thats it, Hands. Lookin forward to seeing y'all on the road!
