Really nifty idea. In my opinion, I would have made the first of three words into areas, but randomized the other two. Then every area has a SINGLE word that describes it. I really think that it could also be optimized for memory - make more popular squares memorably named algorithmically. Overall, the concept and execution are both excellent, but I believe that execution could be even better.
Silly waste of time The app works fine, and the concept is cute, but the system falls over with high rise residences, and the grid is far too fine. Even a 20m square would be excessive. If you're trying to solve the mail delivery issue, what's wrong with using centralised local delivery points like general stores and post offices?
Best idea ever. Why bother with any other address / location system? No need for post codes, lat long, etc, etc. They should be rich beyond their wildest dreams for coming up with this.
Brilliant idea, sticky app Idea is great but the android app on my phone is fairly useless. Doesn't search properly and just stalls a lot. Also gives different 3 words if I use the auto location to typing in my postal address so there seems to be some likelihood of confusion.
Unfortunately stopped I am using Android Marshmallow 6.0 and the app is not being opened on my device. Every time I try to open it says "Unfortunately what3words stopped"
Clever, clever I wonder if it could make a baby with Glympse. It will be the killing apps.
Changed: Behavior of the search bar - 3 word addresses must now take the form of word.word.word, otherwise Google search will be used.
Added: w3w.co and map.what3words.com deeplinks. These will now provide the option to open directly in the app.
Fixed: Font sizing for long 3 word addresses in word bar
Fixed: Removed redundant app permissions
Fixed: Samsung specific crash on mobile data
