... type there is a 500 pesos reward. I watch, refreshing the map, but the icon doesn't move. I press the Play Sound button which I suppose will play a sound on my phone to draw attention.
Every time I do something on the App, I get an email message a while later. Annoying but somewhat comforting. I thought I used the Play Sound button maybe three times. The emails tell me about 10. Eventually, I see the iPhone icon move on the map. I refresh it regularly and see it ...
