2. Install the HiveFest app on your smartphone
|The HiveFest mobile app is available for iPhone or Android|
Register yourself in the app by entering your Hive username manually.
Once you have started the contest with one device, you will NOT be able to switch to another device! The first scan that you will do with a device will force you to continue the contest with the same device, so choose wisely the device you want to use for the contest if you have more than one smartphone and/or tablet!
3. Meet your fellow HiveFest⁷ participants
Your goal is to meet as many people as possible and light up a maximum of badges among the ones available!
To do so, you need to scan the badge of someone you haven't met yet with the help of the HiveFest app.
For the meeting to be valid:
- Scan their HiveFest badge.
- You will have to spend some time with your new friend.
A delay of at least2 minutesis required between 2 mutual scans. Use this time to get to know each others.
- Ask your new friend to scan your own HiveFest badge.
Each time you meet someone (i.e. do a successful mutual badge scan), both of you will get one point. The related badge on both boards will light up and display as an unlocked avatar.
As there are many expected attendees, use will be able to use the filter button to change how the list of attendees will be displayed
