What do I do if I created multiple accounts by accident?
So many emails, so many ways to log in! It's easy to end up with duplicates.
If you'd like to remove a duplicate account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll follow up with you to confirm which account you want to keep, (hint: if you have created activities, keep that user!) and which email is the duplicate account that should be removed.
How do I remove the beta version from my (Andrioid) phone?
Touch and hold the app icon on your phone and select Uninstall from the popup menu.
If you don't have that option, you can open Play Store, Click on your account, and click on My apps & games. Scroll to find Kikori, click on it and click on Uninstall.
How do I log in if I got an error saying 'Invalid Password'?
3. Enter the email linked to your Kikori account in the window that pops up and click Send Recovery Email. (If you are a member through your school, your school address is probably the one associated with your account).
The app seems really slow. Sometimes it won't open at all. I'm not seeing the new activities I keep hearing about. What's happening?
It sounds like you might be trying to log in to the beta version which is no longer supported.
The great news is that the live version is ready and waiting for you!

Where does the name Kikori come from?
When searching for the perfect name for our app, co-founders, Bryn and Kendra brainstormed a BUNCH of different things. Bryn's favorite quote is that “No man steps in the same river twice because the river is always changing and so is the (wo)man” by Heraclitus. She felt like that perfectly describes experiential education activities because an educator and facilitator can run the same activity ten times and get ten different results. The facilitator is always changing, the participants are also always developing, and the activity itself is always evolving.
With that in mind, Bryn began looking up the longest undammed rivers in the world. She found the longest undammed river in Papua New Guinea was the Kikori. Papua New Guinea is also one of the world’s most linguistically diverse countries.
