This week's App of the Week!

Tag Town


Tag Town is a platform for location-based multi-player games and stories, played across mobile apps and web browsers. On an iPhone it looks and feels like a Camera app. You identify real world locations from clues and then take your own photos to progress in the game. The aim is to discover new places and unlock achievements - stories, prizes, discount vouchers from participating vendors.
