  Description     : player for wherigo cartridges

A sister-site of geocaching.com is wherigo.org. There people can publish cartridge files, which can contain tour guides, puzzles (often leading to a geocache), or other adventure-style games. The adventures always make use of a gps receiver to know your position, and part of the adventure is to actually walk around with your legs instead of your keys. A player is required to use those cartridges. The site provides a non-free player. There are several other players available for different phones.

Wherpygo is another player. It is designed for a netbook. That is not a usual platform for the game, because taking a netbook with you is not very comfortable. However, the good thing about it is that the interface has more features than the default interface. It also includes a debugging mode, which can be used by cartridge writers, or players who are stuck.
