HUNT

In Progress

This is a list of hunts you have begun taking photos for. Any time you Start a hunt it is automatically moved to In Progress. You can continue taking photos, mark the hunt as Finished or Delete it.

If you wish, you can set a hunt to Finished at any time before you have completed all the photos by selecting Finished. Once your album is marked as Finished, it's moved from In Progress to the VIEW area.

You can rate your friend's hunt and send them a message from the More Options screen accessed by the wrench icon in the lower left.

Managing Your Creations

Editing
You can go back and edit an In Progress hunt at any time. Select the hunt tile from the list to open the Edit screen. To re-take a photo, just select the item name with a thumbnail and you will see a Preview of the stored photo. There is a button to Re-take the photo. These can be retaken as many times as you want until the hunt is completed.

Once all items in the hunt list have been taken, or you wish to stop taking photos but save the ones you have, select Finished to complete the hunt. You must mark a hunt as Finished to remove it from the In Progress section and move it into My Albums where it can be shared. Hunts that don’t have all their items photographed and are marked Finished are not awarded completion points.

Once a hunt status is completed, you can no longer click to edit the photos.

There are no Hunt editing features at this time, so you can not go and change an item on the list of one you created in Create New once you Save it.

Delete unwanted hunts by selecting the wrench icon in the Detail View. There will be a delete option in the list.

Viewing Albums
You can View, Share or Delete an Album that you have created. When viewing an Album, use your finger to scroll through the list of photos. The list item is identified as a caption. There is a wrench icon in the lower left that will bring up the sharing options. You can Delete the Album, Share with a Friend, Share via Facebook, Make Album Public or Share the App to tell a friend. Anything that was created by someone else and shared with you will have additional options to Rate the Album, get Info on the creator, or Send a Message to the creator.

Sharing
You can share your completed Albums, or user created Hunts with other SnaggleFind users. Additionally, you can Share your Albums with friends via Email, or post to your Facebook page. Enter their email address at the prompt. If they have a SnaggleFind account under that Email, they will receive the Album in their My Friends Albums section. If they do not have an account using that Email, they will receive an Email with a link to a web option to view the Album. To post to your Facebook page, select Share via Facebook and you will be prompted to login to Facebook and then to confirm that you want to post the Album.

The items you photograph are stored both by the application on our server and in your phone. If you want to share a single image with someone, look for it in your camera roll and email it to a friend from there.

FAQ's

Q: How do I get back to the home Welcome screen?

A: You are only shown the Welcome screen when you launch the app. All the links on this page live in the global navigation at the bottom of your screen.


Q:
What are those little red squares with numbers on the buttons in the Welcome screen?

A: These are notification messages to let you know there's new activity in that section. New Hunts, Albums or shared Hunts and Albums are waiting for you to view them. A white dot is placed by an Album that has not been viewed yet.


Q: How do I save my hunt so I can work on it later?

A: As soon as you hit Start, the hunt is saved to the In Progress area. You can edit it as long as you want while it's in this area, even if you fill up all the items and maybe want to retake some of them later. When you are done editing it, hit Finished and that will move your album to the My Albums screen in VIEW where you can view it and share it. You can only earn points once an album is Finished. Once it's marked as Finished, you can no longer edit the photos.

Q: I want to share my Hunt or Album with my friends but I don't want anyone else to see it. Will they?

A: Only Hunts or Albums that have been made public can be seen by anyone. If you do not specifically set them to Public, only you and your friend(s) will be able to see them.


Q:
Why can't I rate my Public Album?

A: You can't vote for your own Album silly! Try picking one someone else created.


Q:
Why isn't my Album listed in the Community Albums anymore?

A: The Album may have been removed due to complaints about content. SnaggleFind has a zero tolerance policy for obscene or inappropriate content in it's Public Albums and Community Hunts. If we receive a user complaint about the content that we verify to be accurate, we will pull the Album or Hunt from Public display. If we receive user complaints about more than one Public Album or Hunt posted by the same user, the posting users Make Public ability will be permanently blocked.
