At Trend Hunter, we love scavenger hunts, and this SCVNGR mobile app lets users build their own interactive scavenger hunts to truly blend technology and the real world. You don’t have to have an iPhone or Android to use SCVNGR, either—although there are apps built for those platforms—as SCVNGR can also be played using SMS.

Below, check out a sample clue, challenge and answer series taken from a SCVNGR demo that uses landmarks in the city of Philadelphia. Multimedia cues—including player-submitted photos—make the SCVNGR experience truly awesome. For snaps from Trend Hunter’s scavenger hunt, you’ll have to be a fan of our Facebook Page.
