There’s an App for That Vol. 3

I’m tired of having to pay for things to do during spring break, instead I look for new apps that supply fun and affordable entertainment for those days when you don’t know what to do with yourself. Replace those trips to the mall and go on a hike or go to your local pool and just have some fun with friends or family.Geocaching

Geocaching- This app is nothing new and in fact has been around for about 13 years. The idea of Geocaching is to go searching for things on a GPS map and locate hidden objects. Objects can be found when hiking in the woods, the trinkets can be found in a box and may include things like stuffed animals or bracelets. If you decide to choose one to keep, you have to replace your findings of equal value. The app is a little on the pricey side, settling at 10 dollars but it is worth it to have great memories of your adventures.

Instead of wasting your time and money looking for expensive cameras or GPS devices, look for applicable ways to save your money and use an app.
