Getting Started with iBeacon Part 5: Creating a Simple Treasure Hunt

The locly app is a non-technical tool for creating professional iBeacon experiences in minutes.

In this tutorial we bring everything you’ve learned together to create a simple treasure hunt. All you need are 3 iBeacon devices e.g. Estimote and the locly app installed on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. It really is very straight-forward and non technical, so we hope you give it a go!
