Great way to mark easily where something is, if only my car sat nav could use this. (mind you it cannot remember the time always changes to gps time which 1hr out)
New phone, Oneplus 5T. App doesn't show any grid or give any words. Tech support please contact me. I've been a loyal user for a long time, and I would appreciate some help. Thx. *** UPDATE: Someone from W3W got back to me, rating gets moved to 3 stars. Will update again when the issue is resolved.
Great concept. Terrible execution. Address is no longer intuitive. Two neighboring tiles have completely different address. I don't see any good reason why wouldn't you implement the scaling scheme as well.. so at least same city would have same first words.. Second horrible mistake is lack of lemantization. There are variations of same word as sizes/sized, clip/clips. The address no longer carries meaning but you should also memorize tense/plurality. Unless you fix these issues I see no future to this startup. It's far worse than GPS in too many ways.
I love the concept and simplicity of it. but it's hard to see this as replacing postal addresses. one issue is that adjacent cells on the grid share nothing in common, they're completely random words. given that, I can think of at least one scenario where this system would be less useful than the postal system. integration is going to be the biggest obstacle though. if this isn't natively supported via GMaps, Google Assistant/Ok Google, etc then I can't imagine this catching on. still I'm rooting for this concept though!
Making the address extremely unintuitive. Remarkably so. But it's a good concept, especially if you dont have a formal address already.
what3words is an amazing concept that I recently discovered from TED. I'll be sure to use 3-word-addressing when next camping/hiking. App works well but does not landscape on a tablet (so only 4 stars) I expect this app is designed for use on small cheap mobile devices so rotation is not wanted but could there be a scenario where, back at base, people are coordinating resources on tablets? Just a thought.
