  • Feels so good to join the x% that don’t have an address

    Having a domicile -an address, was part of the establishment, but honestly...how could we feel good about that when 60%* of the world don’t have a domicile. Is it just poverty that groups us, couldn’t be education -as I am bilingual, healthy -thanks God, at 70 and wanting to be useful to the world. Wa have left, shaken off the communications grid as even the internet is wireless (celular) now. Pretty soon electricity via super capacitors, solar and wind sourcing it will voids of all those wires, but where are we..... enter what3words! Hip, hip, hurray!!
  • Great app. Suggestions for the future

    There are so many possibilities for what could be done with this app. What if you could connect it to social media and publicly share locations. Or you could look at the map and turn a filter on to view popular saved locations that are represented by different colors based on how many people have saved them. You could learn the popular places at a state park and go there without having to do tons of research! Keep adding on to this, you’ve got something good here.
  • Fun toy, mostly worthless

    Requires robust internet connection. No pattern to the words - is ‘robust,internet, connection’ nearby, or far away? Is it even valid? If you receive a 3 word location, and it isn’t valid, what’s the problem - spelling or a misunderstood word, or even 2 misunderstood words? Requires secondary app to get directions - not a show stopper, but a pain to switch. A solution in search of a problem already solved better by LAT/LONG. Sure, you could say nobody knows their LAT/LONG off the top of their head, but you can find it on a paper map. 3 words needs an electronic device and a connection.

    I have always loved the idea of 3words, and I have used it with glee sometimes. However, I have been quite saddened with the inability to save locations. Well, hot-freaking-dog! Wait no longer, because my wish has become reality! Thank you for making this app immensely easier to use on a day to day basis.

    This app is amazing! I can find any 3x3 Meyer square in the world and allow others to find it as well. It's easy to use and is even fun to see the addresses of places you frequent. Overall, I love it so much.
  • Awesome update... Need a new feature

    By Abode v2
    When I travel, I want to save multiple trip locations in a list called “Paris” or “Awesome New York Trip”... then i want to be able to a) export that list into a word or excel file for printing or sharing physically... b) share the complete list (or part of it) easily with a friend or social media “Hey, you should visit THESE places when you travel using w3w!” Then everyone will use What3Words... Make the whole thing easy to export and share! Good luck with app!

    This little app and its cousin 3WordPhoto are tremendous time savers. They are pretty intuitive and I have decided to keep them on my mobile HOME screen since I use them so frequently.
  • Truly amazing

    By unhappy paid user 2016
    This app will definitely be revolutionary in providing GPS locations down to the exact location with something as easy to remember as a 3 word phrase.
