How the Hipposcout App works

The purpose of the app is to allow you to drill down to the events and activities that you're specifically looking for. We've broken the search down into three main categories: When, Category (what) and Where.

When: This is your first choice. You can choose a specific date or date range, today, this weekend or next week. Once you make your selection, use the Back button to return to the Main Menu.

Category (what): This is what type of activities or events you are looking to find. You can leave this blank to see everything or drill down to just one category. Once you make your selection, use the Back button to return to the Main Menu.

Sub Category: You can use this choice to further drill down if you are seeking a very specific event.

Where: Use this feature to narrow your geographic search area to around you by choosing distance from you or by choosing a town or a distance around a town. For example, if you were visiting Portsmouth, you might choose Portsmouth with a five mile radius around it.

Search: You can also search by keyword. For example, if you just want to find every contra dance going on next week, you could type “contra” and match it with your desired time frame.

How the Website works

The Website is very similar to the app and uses the same database to retrieve your events or activities. Just like with the Hipposcout App, the purpose is to allow you to drill down to events and activities.

When: Use the radio button to choose your time frame for the event or activity.

Category (what): Use the radio button and scroll to choose the type of event or activity you are looking for. You can leave this blank to include all activities.

Sub Category: This allows you to further refine the type of event or activity you are searching for.

Where: Choose the location of the events and activities that you are searching for. You can choose a specific town or a radius around a town or a radius around the town you live in or are visiting.

Search: You can also search by keyword. For example, if you just want to find every contra dance going on next week, you could type “contra” and match it with your desired time frame.

How to choose and use favorites

The app and website will allow you to choose favorites by selecting the heart button. This will move your selection into the Favorites tab at the top of the website or menu in the app. Your favorites will remain until the event or activity expires or you de-select the event or activity.

How to use the Editor's Pick

The Editor's Pick feature appears at the top of the website and in the dropdown menu in the app. The picks are from our staff and are independent from any influence from advertisers or business staff at HippoPress.

How to use Seasonal Outings

Hipposcout's Seasonal Outings on the website and app include recent stories that ran in HippoPress about a significant seasonal event, such as Halloween or New Year's Eve.
