Like many of us the creators of the newly launched Wanderous iPhone App realized that there are many marvelous un-explored places just blocks from where we live. We can spend years living in the same place, continuing in our same routines, but somehow be complete oblivious to the amazing things around us. That same problem occurs when we travel.
Wanderous is a navigation application for your iPhone that creates routes optimized for adventure. Routes created in Wanderous start and end where you specify, but the twist from all the other destination recommendation apps on the market is its unique algorithm to help you intentionally wander off the beaten path into more interesting, unique, or spots worth noting. Spots can include parks, landmarks, historical sites, busy city corridors, scenic vistas, and public attractions.
All the visit-worthy spots noted in Wanderous are custom selected in-house and are 100% unique. Developed and founded by Adam Wolf of Flairify, a one person development shop in The Mission District of San Francisco, Wanderous takes advantage of the millions of geo-tags from public photo sharing and social sites to suggest places worth visiting.
The app is currently free on the App store, but also is only useful for those in the United States.
