Munzee API is now open to developers

With almost 3 million deployments and 45 million captures around the world, we have been asked many times over the years about giving developers access to that data to create their own apps using the Munzee API in different ways. Until now we haven’t had infrastructure in place to support it, but after working the past few weeks we’re proud to announce that we’ve made it a reality. We have created a streamlined, fairly easy to use method for developers to access our data to create applications from the Munzee platform.

Munzee is a small team and we can’t build everything we want, so it’s time to incorporate you, the developer. We think this is a great opportunity to help grow our game and give our talented players the chance to make something great. Below you’ll find the links to get started and if you have any questions, suggestions, comments – please email api@munzee.com.

Zee- A Munzee Companion App is now available for download!

icon1024UPDATE: It may take up to 24 hours for the app to propagate worldwide, so if it doesn’t first appear, check back over time. 

We’re proud to announce that our new app Zee is now available for download for iOS and Android devices! This new Munzee companion app has been designed as a handy tool to take your Munzee experience to the next level. Taking key points from Munzee, the Zee app adds new depths to your real world scavenger hunt. Check out your daily points, convert munzees in the field and more!

It’s easy to use, just download Zee- A Munzee Companion App in the Apple or Google Play store, login with your Munzee account info and start. The Zee app will showcase a realtime point counter so you can keep track of your daily progress. Looking at conquering the 10K badge? Preparing for the precise Pi badge? Then Zee is the tool for you. 

You can also finally convert munzees in the field using the Zee app. Whether you’re deploying a diamond, coloring a virtual or sharpening a battle axe, Zee makes it easy to convert on the fly. Don’t take our word for it though, download Zee and convert NOW. Just what will you convert though? Well funny you should ask…

GemAquamarine_128In connection to Zee’s release we are also releasing the new Aquamarine Jewel pin! This is our 218th unique munzee pin and to commemorate Zee’s birth month of March it is the light blue semi-precious stone. Like other members of the jewel collection this is a conversion munzee and can be attached to any greenie. This special icon earns 25 points for deployment. The owner receives 10 points for each capture on the munzee and the capper earns 10 points. Yes, we realize that Zee and the Aquamarine pins are actually being released in April and not March, but it took a little longer to mature than we expected. We stand by our decision. 

Premium members have received one free Aquamarine credit (which you can see at munzee.com/credits), but those who download the Zee app from April 6th-12th will also receive another free credit. Accounts that have signed into Zee by the deadline will receive the free credit on April 13 at 10:00 a.m. MHQ time. Aquamarine credits will also be on sale in the Munzee online store for a limited amount of time.

You do NOT have to be a premium member to download Zee or receive the free aquamarine credit upon download.  We suggest you become a premium member so you don’t miss out on more freebies in the future though. You can learn more about becoming a premium player at http://store.munzee.com/Premium-Member-Subscription.html.

UPDATE on Glitch Badge

11025688_1074606469222761_909309285628722268_nAs many have noticed, a glitch badge featuring a disoriented Munzee logo surfaced about a month ago. With the help of the players we’ve been working diligently to find the source of the problem, but much is still unknown. When our servers went down for routine maintenance last month, something seemed to get into our system and since it would take a server-wide shutdown to quickly find the source we have had to slowly dissect portions of the game in search of answers.

We understand the timing around this is less than desirable, what with April Fool’s Day around the corner, but it would appear that the joke is on us. Early Friday we received this semi-cryptic email from former Munzee President Aaron Benzick.

“Hey guys, 

Hope everything with Munzee is going well and relatively GLITCH-less. I remember a few BLURRY days during my time with Munzee, but nothing a few MISSING NO.s wouldn’t fix. Just remember to wear your Team Munzee BADGE with pride and never settle for MALFUNCTIONS. Hope I’m not BUGging you all, just wanted to send over some words of encouragement. Enjoy your week and happy April!

-Aaron”

Although we don’t know “how” (Scott is crying foul) the “why” seems to be a bit of a joke from the original co-founders. So luckily it appears that you don’t have to worry about your phone exploding, but there is still the matter of this badge. After much deliberation we have decided to keep the so-called Missing No. badge for at least a few more days so Aaron’s plan can come to fruition. The following requirements are needed to attain this badge, but you’ll only have until Thursday to do it. These do not need to be done in any particular order, but all must be done within 24 hours to receive the badge.

  • You must capture a munzee with coordinates that end in 11 (ex. 33.185989696811)
  • Capture on the 11th second of an odd numbered minute (ex. 4:26:11 AM)
  • You must have at least one capture worth 11 points during the day.
  • Capture a munzee within 1 hour and 11 minutes of receiving cap on points.
  • Deploy 4 greenies within 24 hours. 
  • Wear your hat backwards in an Opposuit (Not really, but you should still buy an Opposuit.)

Obviously our trickster has an affinity for 11 (perhaps symbolizing 2011, the year Munzee was born) but these requirements come straight from Aaron himself, so despite their extensive nature it seems this is the only way to get the badge. Good luck and as always, Grow The Map!

Munzee Players Raise $50,000 for the American Heart Association

VdayPinkWe’re extremely proud to announce our players have helped us raise a $50,000 donation for the American Heart Association through our virtual candy hearts fundraiser. This is a huge testament to our players’ ability to give and we continue to beam with pride with each fundraising effort. Although we only sold the AHA Candy Heart Virtuals for seven days our players quickly showed their support and the Munzee Map now looks like a box of Necco conversation hearts!

The American Heart Association was ecstatic to receive our gift and shared many stories- highlighting how our donation will be used to help the world. Whether it’s funding heart research or aiding in education, the money our players raised will take AHA one step closer to saving hearts worldwide. According to the US Center for Disease Control, Cardiovascular disease (including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure) is the number 1 killer of women and men in the United States and a leading cause of disability. This is an important cause that affects every human being and we’re proud to say we’ve helped in this fight.

Remember, the virtual hearts that have been deployed around the world are still live for another couple weeks. We’ve seen tons of new events pop up based on heavy heart locations and everyone has had a lot of fun spreading the love. The virtuals will disappear from the map on March 15th at 23:59 MHQ time (GMT -6). To find an event near you or even host you own go to calendar.munzee.com.

We thank you again for the good work you have all done. Munzee can do good, but only with the help of our players.

Remember the Alamo! New specials live on the map.

alamoIn celebration of Texas Independence Day (March 2, 1836) we have released new specials to the map. These new pins commemorate the Battle of the Alamo where Texans fended off Mexican attacks from taking the Alamo, a Mexican mission, for 13 days before falling to Santa Anna’s forces. This battle became an inspirational moment in the battle for Texas Independence and to this day the Alamo still plays a huge part in Texas history.

254 Alamo pins will be across the map worldwide, bouncing to a new location every 6 hours. There is a 36 point split between owner and capper, with each getting a minimum of 5 points. The pins will stay on the map for 13 days, from March 2 until March 15. By capping an Alamo pin you will also get a Come an Cap It badge as well. You can see the new specials at www.munzee.com/texas.
