    The simple way to move the files into the apps is to copy it to the external storage first. Then copy it over to the internal storage via the FileManger App. On the PC, you will be NOT able to see the correct path. On FM, you can.

    This would be a 5 star app if you could download the cartridge from within the app. Getting the cartridge onto the phone can take longer than playing the game. Looking forward to an update.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SII and before I upgrade it to ICS it worked fine. After upgrading the phone to ICS it not working any more.

    WiFi Only Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and WhereYouGo. The App does not recognize the INTERNAL REAL GPS. The GPS is working fine with other Apps, offline.

    Did my first WherIgo today thanks to your app. All worked smooth and I'm anxious to try another soon. Thanks for your efforts!

    It did not save a GWS file, which is needed to unlock the cartridge. Maps don't work.

    The interface to get started is not intuitive, but in the end, I got the cartridges loaded. However, for some reason, the longitude is displaying in south and latitude in north, putting me 30000km from the cache. I think that would put me somewhere in high earth orbit. Make an app that can read GPS before going past the basics.
