Whoever said that hunting Easter Eggs is just for kids hasn't heard of the Vito Technology's new contest. The iPhone app developers have hidden 9 virtual Easter Eggs in the sky of their app Star Walk.
Here's how to play: First download Star Walk and install it on your iPhone or iPod touch. If you already own Star Walk, then be sure you're using the most up-to-date version. Then start hunting!
The publisher is kick starting the contest with this tip: "It gets up when it's dark." They promise to publish additional clues and updates on their website, www.vitotechnology.com, as the contest moves forward.
The eggs are hidden throughout the starmap somewhere between the stars and the planets. When you've found the Easter Eggs hidden in the app, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining:
- how many eggs you found (there should be 9)
- what you found and where you found
- explain why you think the eggs were placed in that location
- include your contact details — name, address, email, phone number
The first 3 people to find all nine eggs will be eligible to win an iPod touch. Additional prizes will be announced later in the contest, but may include iTunes gift certificate or Apple Store gift cards.
